I., Oct. 5, 1857; went to Kansas with his father in spring of 1866, being then nine years old past; attended district school at College Hill schoolhouse until he was able to enter the State Agri- cultural college at Manhattan, where he studied two years, standing well in his classes and grading well. His vacations and spare time were devoted to assisting his father on the farm, where he acquired a liking for the work, and in 1879 he married Miss Abbie L.
