* WILLIAM AUSTIN The younger element of the old settlers of Montgomery county is worthily represented in the person of William Austin, of this brief sketch. He has resided in the county since 1872, which year his parents established the family one mile west and four miles north of Cherryvale. Mr. Austin was born in Knox county, Illinois, January 22, 1864. Abel Austin was his father and his mother Sarah T. Scott, the former a native of Ohio and the latter of Illinois. Farming was the life occupation of Abel Austin and he died at forty years of age in 1875. The mother returned to Illinois with her large family on the eve of this misfortune, where she remained till her sons were of that age sufficient to cultivate their Kansas farm when the family returned hither and again took up the development of a home. She passed her life in the company of her children and died in Montgomery county in 1897. Abel Austin was a widower when he married Sarah T. Scott. His first wife died leaving him two sons, H.T. and C.I. Austin, and he was the father of five children by his second marriage, namely: William, Frank, Elmer, Homer and Alma. William Austin has been identified with Montgomery county continuously since twenty years of age. From 1884 to 1892, he remained an important adjunct to the domestic circle and he gained his initial experience on a Kansas farm. In 1892, he married Amanda L. White, a daughter of John N. White and Jane A. (Snodgrass) White. Mr. White came to Kansas from West Virginia in 1894, and settled in Montgomery county where they still reside. At the opening of the Sac and Fox land Mr. Austin made the race for a claim, secured one and fulfilled his obligation to the government by proving up on the same. At about this juncture his two brothers on the family home died and our subject sold his Oklahoma possessions and returned to Montgomery county, buying the home of his boyhood and youth. His is a fertile farm, well situated and well adapted to the purposes of stock and grain farming. The family of Mr. and Mrs. Austin consists of four children, viz: Florence, Oma, Viola and Elmer.
