ment at Clinton, Ia., Aug. 8, 1865. He returned to his home in Quasqueton, which he had not seen in three years, worn out, run down, and weak from constant for three years, and which continued for more than fifteen years after the war. Find- ing no place of business obtainable he with his family, wife and two children, went on a visit to the old folks at home in the state of New York. While on this visit he was induced to engage in an enterprise to be consummated at Richmond, Va., in the establishment of a dairy farm. The project was a complete failure, and mindful still of the advice of GREELEY he again went west with his family to grow up again, locating on government land in Oswego Township, Labette Co., Kas., in the spring of 1867. Upon this place he lived seventeen years, when he sold out and moved into the city of Oswego, two and a half miles distant. The land sold for $31.25 per acre, costing from the government $1.25 per acre. He has continuously lived in Oswego up to date, Oct. 20, 1894, aged seventy-three years four months and seven days. He has no regular business of his own, but spends most of his time assisting his son-in- law in a coal, wood, flour and feed store; res. Quasqueton, Ia., and Oswego, Kas. 8926. i. EMMA HAWLEY, b.
