S. S. KAYSBIER, M. D., was born in Wayne Co., OH, in 1829. He is the son of Samuel and Mary (Shull) Kaysbier. The doctor was left fatherless at the age of five years, and from his tenth year lived in New Philadelphia, OH. He began the study of medicine while in a drug store, at seventeen years of age; removed to Illinois at nineteen, graduated in the spring of 1852 from the Medical Department of the State University of Missouri at St. Louis; began practice in Toulon, Ill. In the fall of 1852 he opened the first drug store in Toulon, and in 1857, in company with the late Rev. R. C. Dunn, commenced the publication of the Stark Co. News, a weekly paper still in existence, and in the editorial management of which he continued until the war broke out. The doctor gained a fair reputation as a writer. He enlisted in the Band of the Forty-seventh Illinois Volunteer Infantry in 1861, served until the regimental bands were discharged by Government, and afterwards as assistant surgeon, until 1863; resigned on account of sickness; practiced in Rochester, Ill., and Toulon until 1870, when he came to Seneca, where he has since resided and practiced. The doctor married in Toulon, Ill., Miss Hannah J. Whitaker, a native of Tioga Co., Penn. They have six children - five born in Illinois and the youngest in Kansas. Their names are, E. Lena, Mary, Fred L., Kate, Minnie M. and Thayne. The doctor has a pleasant home, surrounded by an unusually good showing of fruit, shade, and ornamental trees, flowers, shrubs, small fruits, etc., all of his own planting. He is the oldest practitioner in Seneca.
