Excerpt from History of the City of Spokane and Spokane Country, Washington, Vol. 3: From Its Earliest Settlement to the Present Time Starting out in life with less opportunity or equipment than the average American boy, but evidently possessed of an optimism and determination which enabled him to triumph over many adverse situations and discouragements, Robert Edmund Strahorn has followed the lead of his opportunities, doing as best he could anything that came to hand, and creating and seizing legitimate advantages as they have arisen. He has never hesitated to take a forward step when the way was open. Fortunate in possessing a degree of earnestness and frankness that have inspired confidence in others, the simple weight of his character and ability have carried him into important relations with large interests and he is now the president of several important railway and other corporations with headquarters in Spokane. The North Coast Railroad project especially owes its inception and prosecution to him and is constituting a most important element in business activity throughout the northwest. Mr. Strahorn was born in Center county, Pennsylvania, May 15, 1852. The family is of Scotch-Irish origin and the ancestry in America is traced back to the great-grandfather of our subject, who in colonial days came from Scotland to the new world and afterward aided in obtaining American liberty in the Revolutionary war. He continued a resident of Union county, Pennsylvania, until his death and his son Samuel Strahorn, grandfather of our subject, also made his home in that county. The father, Thomas F. Strahorn, there born and reared, learned the trades of a millwright and machinist and in 1856 removed from Center county, Pennsylvania, to Freeport, Illinois, and nine years later became a resident of Sedalia, Missouri. In 1878 he crossed the Rockies, following in the footsteps of his son who had preceded in 1870, and after residing for a time in Idaho and Montana he became a resident of Los Angeles, California, where he passed away in 1883. His wife, who bore the maiden name of Rebecca Emmert, was born in Center county, Pennsylvania, and was of Dutch lineage, a daughter of John Emmert, who had come to this country from Switzerland. The death of Mrs. Strahorn occurred in 1861. Robert E. Strahorn spent the first four years of his life in the state of his nativity and was then taken by his parents to northern Illinois, where the period of his youth was passed in village and farm life where his work was of the hardest. His educational privileges were very limited, as he attended school only until ten years of age. Private reading and study, however, constantly broadened his knowledge and the studious habits of his youth have made him a man of wide general information. In the school of experience, too, he learned many valuable lessons which have proven of significant worth in his advancement in the business world.
