J. H. GOULD, grain and stock-dealer, was born and reared in Adams County, Ill., and was identified with the farming and stock-raising industry there. In 1862, at the age of twenty-one, he enlisted in Company C, Seventy-second Illinois Volunteer Infantry, and did active service until the close of the war, when he was discharged honorably. During his war service he was in Andersonville Prison for four months. In 1868, he located here [Opolis, Crawford, Kansas] and carried on farming and stock-raising successfully until 1882, when he retired from it. In 1878, he established his present industry, and has successfully operated it since.

He married, in 1866, Miss S. J. Hoyt, who was born in Orange County, N. Y., and reared in Adams County, Ill., and who departed this life in 1867, and is buried in the Pulaski Cemetery, Ill., leaving one daughter--Jennie B. In 1874, he married Miss S. E. Michie, a native of Canada. They have a family of one son and two daughters--Emily R., Ina E. and Benjamin.

He has worked actively in the development of the social and industrial life of his locality since coming here. He is the present Notary Public and Justice of the Peace, which position he has held reputably for several years. He is also an active member of the I. O. O. F. Society.
