John Bracewell, one of the prominent and influential citizens of Wayne County, is a native of Yorkshire, England, where he was born March 13, 1834. He came to America in 1850, living in Illinois till 1866, when he came to Wayne County, Iowa. He settled on his present farm on section 19, Warren Township, in March, 1869, having purchased part of his farm the year previous. When he settled on his land it was but little improved, only a few acres having been broken. The farm now contains 400 acres of choice improved land, beside which he owns forty acres of timber land. He has a good stock farm, and devotes considerable time to the raising of stock, in which he is very successful. Mr. Bracewell was married in Illinois, to Susan E. Lumbsden, who was born in Tennessee in 1832, a daughter of William G. and Lucy Lumsden, who were natives of Virginia. They lived for a short time in Kentucky, and in 1836 removed to Illinois, where they still reside. Mr. and Mrs. Bracewell are the parents of five children William E., James E., Mary L., John G. and Leonard M. No name has been more closely identified with the growth and settlement of Wayne County than that of Bracewell, Mr. Bracewell's five brothers being influential citizens of this county. Politically Mr. Bracewell is a Republican. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
