...1870Sep, Dubuque.IA:   Rev. Z.D. Scobey of FayetteIA,  Zepheniah Darke Scobey because he could not help it (being a Rev), secondly a a dairy man, being engaged in milking during the first few years of his existence, thirdly a farmer, which he left because he became ambitious of saving souls and entered the ministry, fourthly county treasurer of Delaware.Co.IA, because preaching did not pay, fifthly enlarging his sphere and becoming agent of the  American Bible Society, has sixthly stuck up his shingle as practicing attorney at Fayette.  As may be inferred, Zepheniah is a Yankee.

...1873-1875 The rails were laid to Fayette and Fayette.Co.IA,  which linked to Marion, Linn.Co.IA and villages to the east.  Rails were laid northward to Calmar where the spur linked with other rail lines moving northward into MN and west through Dakota Territory.  Trains from Fayette northward had to wait until 1875, when the 1st cut at Fayette, the 'abutment bridge' a half mile west, and the 2nd cut 2mi west would be finished.  From 1875 on, there was a great boom in farm production and trading due to rail transportation opening the markets all over the country.  Before 1875, agriculture and merchandising depended on draft horses and oxen to transport products to/from the Mississippi River ports 40-60 miles to the east and rail hubs 60 miles to the south.  From 1875 to the early 1900's was a 'boom' time in Fayette.Co.IA.   The established first and second generation pioneer families dominated the farms and Main.St businesses, with smaller numbers moving directly to the area from states to the east of the Mississippi. As the rails open westward, a number of Fayette.Co.IA stockman began accompanying horses and cattle to the western ranges in NE Montana territory.  They were instrumental in opening up the stock trade between the western ranges and cities to the east such as Chicago, Boston, New York.  Several of the families settled in Montana and western states to include CA and the pacific northwest.

O'B Scobey ran articles for five days regarding the 'Early History of Fayette County, Iowa.'  This was three years before the '1878 History of Fayette County Iowa,'  was released.
...Spring of 1929, the Fayette Leader re-published the 'Early History of Fayette County Iowa' articles.  J.C. Burch, from Los.Angeles, then sent a letter to Dr. J.M. Parker, in which he referred to the five days in Jun1875, when the 'Fayette Daily News' was issued by Burch & Scobey.  J.C. Burch wrote:  " I most assuredly would enjoy looking over our youthful efforts (while UIU students, both Fayette natives) to print a daily on the old Washington band press.  I recall going into the different townships to collect the data for that part of the paper, but most vividly I remember that for the few days of its firs issue we worked all night, catching a few hours sleep in the morning.  Oscar Jones was our printer's devil and manipulated the roller in inking the forms; he would go to sleep standing up, and then one of us would relieve him for half an hour and let him drop into a chair for about forty winks."

...Above:  Sec 9, Smithfield is 3.5mi S of Main.St, Fayette.IA, on today's Hwy 150.

along the 'new' RR's in the early 1880's.  They also sold stock in Chicago and on the eastern markets, such as Boston.
...There was a cluster of Fayette.Co.IA, families there were early stock shippers (see the Cavanaugh page for some surnames),
and were early pioneers on the western frontier, settling from Iowa to the Pacific coast.  The buyers made many trips on the rails
with their stock, often becoming land speculators or settlers in the areas of their choice. 
...By the mid-1920's all the  Scobey's were gone from Main.St, Fayette.IA, but they continued to visit relatives and friends in the area by rail and auto.

...1878May, Monticello.IA:  From Fayette.IA news; Mr. Co.C. Cole, formerly editor of the Fayette News is taking the place of Charles R. Scobey, Mail Route Agent on the route from Fayette to Davenport & Northwestern Road.  Mr. (C.R.A.) Scobey has been transferred to the route from Farley in Delaware.Co. to Cedar Rapids.

...1883Apr, Fayette.IA:  Charles R. A. Scobey is now a regular on the Chicago, Forreston & Dubuque (rail) run, with big money monthly. As he has no family to look after, all he needs do on getting a transfer is to pack his collar box, grab his tobacco pouch and be absent.
...1883Apr24Fayette.IA, C.W. Sperry and Geo.

...1883Jun26Fayette.IA.  It is told us, on what authority we do not know, that the mother of the Barber boys has returned from Montana vowing vengeance on this town.  (The Barber Boys were Fayette.Co 'outlaws' lynched for the shooting death of Deputy Shepard of Lima, in Wadena.  Fayette.Co. Sheriff Farr had deputized Shepard to go arrest the Barber Boys, who had been sighted in Wadena.  This is the same Farr of the 'firm' of Scobey, Taylor, Farr, who were stock dealers with offices in Fayette and West Union, shipping between Iowa, Montana and eastern states. bz/2012).
...1883July12Fayette.IA, W.A. Hoyt,  G.P. Duncan, C.R. Duncan, A. Scobey, D. Schoonmaker and Dominic Cavanaugh are all "in cahoots" in the Montana cattle business.  C.W. Sperry ships cattle to the same ranch but brands in his own name.  Hank Boyce and Ern. Holmes have gone to Montana.  There were nine men and two train loads of stock who and which left here (Fayette) Saturday for Montana via St. Paul and Bismark.  The Glendive Times (Montana) notices the opening of a cattle ranche on Thirteen Mile Creek, by Duncan & Schoonmaker, of this place (Fayette.IA), and predicts an influx of Iowa population in consequence.

...1883July12Fayette.IA, Charley Scobey has quit kicking old mail pounces around and throwing out maledictions and tobacco juice at every junction in Illinois between Dubuque and Chicago, and has donned a blue woolen shirt with pearl buttons, a broad-brimmed hat and sombrero, a two weeks old beard and a hungry look, a Winchester rifle and double-action revolver loaded for elephant, and when astride a cream-colored broncho, looks like a veritable cow-bow in a panic and hearts of a funeral procession.  He and Dominic Cavanaugh, another wild Irishman born in American, have been into the woods daily on their bucking mustangs, striking attitudes and rehearsing their frontier speeches, so that they will not be taken for tender-feet when they appear on the plateaus of Montana.  By Harris, if our hair was a little more plentiful and lengthy and we had on our ancient moccasins, it would be difficult to keep us from going on their trail and giving them a St. Regis and St. Lawrence county war whoop that would make them hunt cover too expeditiously to be seen.  But is is thirty years since we came civilized, that is, what little we have left.  The boys will take more comfort up in Montana than they have any business with.
...1883Jul, Fayette.IA:  From the Glendive, Dawson.Co.MT Times, Geo. Scobey has been laid up with neuralgia.  'The (Cattle) Company' (group of Fay.Co.IA stockman) shipped about a thousand head of cattle to Glendive, on which the freight was $3000.  They have 20 head of fine young brood maries, and the whole outfit is nicely settled on their ranch.  The Times wishes there were seventy Fayette county people there instead of seven.
...1883, Dominick Cavanaugh who went to Dawson county, Montana, with Andrew R. Duncan, from Fayette,  and entered into the cattle business, but sold out in 1884 and invested in horses.  Mr. Cavanaugh was county assessor for two terms and in 1894 was elected sheriff, was re-elected in 1896 & 1898.  Sheriff Dominic Cavanaugh would be murdered Dec 24, 1898 (paper articles in later notes).
...1883Jul26Fayette.IA, A Montana firm bought 5000 head of cattle on the Sun River and Telton range about a year ago for $135,00 cash.  They were sold to a Colorado syndicate recently for $235,000, the increase in the value and the increase in the head netting $100,000 in one year.  Chicago Tribune.
...1883Jul26Fayette.IA, From the Glendive (Mont.) Times we learn that George Scobey was laid up with neuralgia; that the company shipped about a thousand head of cattle there, on which the freight was $3,000; that they have twenty head of find young brood mares, and the whole outfit is nicely settled on their ranch; and the Times wishes there were seventy Fayette county people there instead of seven.
...Aug02Fayette.IA, Boyce, Scobey, Schoonover had just manners enough to come home from Montana the day our last paper was out, so all the other papers for 30 miles around could get the news first just to be mean and break down a 'nasty,' newspaper.  But we'll get even with them yet, we'll tell something on them they never did.  Charley Scobey has commenced the study of geology and seven-up since locating in Montana.  At the train containing their stock was passing through the Bad Lands, were the ground seemed to be or was smoky and burning, and desolation marked the landscape for its own, Charley stood on the hurricane deck, and with folded arms and solemn countenance imparted the following information; "boys, this used to be Hell, here, but the country got so bad they had to move it."  The last that was noticed of him and Dominic (Cavanaugh) they were consulting some ancient books concerning the location of kings and diamonds and other things in that new country.
...1883Aug30Fayette.IA, Armstrong, until lately Butler's partner in the 'Union,' (West Union paper) has gone to Glendive, Montana, with a train load of cattle.  Some have cheek enough to say Butler will start up Salt Creek on a flatboat on the 10th of Oct.
...1883Aug30Fayette.IA, (political chatter about Iowa prohibition and temperance due to Fayette and UIU being Methodist Church dominated)  "The Montana Cattle Firm" are solid for Ed Rice.  It is not told us whether Charlie (Scobey) and Dominic (Cavanaugh) are coming down to talk for the new "temperance ticket" or not.  It will likely depend on whether the wolves tip over their jug or not.  Come down, down, boys, they need thee every hour.  The cause languisheth, for something to drink.
...Note:  Dominic Cavanaugh was murdered
on Christmas Eve, 1898, while he was sheriff of Dawson County,   That tragic event left his wife Lillian, with three small children to raise by herself.  Born 1872July22, in Butler.Co.IA, Lillian had moved with her parents to the lower Yellowstone in 1886.  About 21yrs old when she married Dominic Cavanaugh, she prove to be a resilient and self-reliant woman.  The year following Dominic's death, Lillian sold her interest in the OU ranch to her b/law James Jr. Cavanaugh, and moved into Glendive.  There she bought Miss Eleanor's Millinery Shop.  In spring and fall, Lillian would travel to nearby communities with her stock of hats.  In 1916, dau Esther Cavanaugh married Desmond O'Neil, the son of train driver (engineer) Ed O'Neil.  After some 42yrs together, Desmond died in 1958.  Some time after Desmond's death, Lillian finally sold her millinery business in Glendive and moved in with her widowed daughter, Esther.  Lillian was then more than 85yrs old and had been selling ladies hats all over Dawson County and eastern Montana for more than 60yrs.   Lillian Cavanaugh died in 1963 at the age of 91.  Esther died in 1977.

...1883Aug, Fayette.IA:  Boyce, Charley Scobey & Schoonmaker came home from Montana. 

From the Play, "An Uncommon Journey" (about the murder death of Sheriff Cavanaugh):    Dominic Cavanaugh is credited with arrival in Yellowstone country "in the early '80s; p.o. Glendive; brand OU; range Thirteenmile Creek."  Hoopes also showed a partnership of Cavanaugh and Duncan in 1885 (Dr. Andrew R. Duncan, the first NPRR physician in Glendive).  The 'Glendive Independent on 1885Aug01 reported on the "Duncan and Cavanaugh" partnership on Thirteenmile Creek.  The OU Ranch of Duncan & Cavanaugh was one of the first in the Montana area.  Cavanaugh was primarily interested in horses, consequently his ranch survived the winter of 1886-1887.  In 1893, Dominic married Lillian Walmsley, whose family had homesteaded on nearby Morgan Creek in 1888.  They had three children; Dominic Jr, Ray/Raymond and Esther
.....In 1893 Major C.R.A. Scobey bought the Snyder & Hodgson butcher shop in Glendive.  In 1894, C.R.A. Scobey was elected superintendent of schools for Dawson County.  He came back to Glendive from the ranch to work in that capacity until 1898, when he (C.R.A. Scobey) was appointed Indian Agent at Fort Peck by Wm. McKinley's administration.  He was re-appointed in 1902 by Theo. Roosevelt, who Charles knew personally, inviting Charles to the Whitehouse to receive the commission. He served in that capacity until 1904.   'Major' C.R.A. Scobey and his wife, Elizabeth, had seven children: five dau's and two son's.  One girl and one boy died young.  In 1905, Scobey and family left Montana, moving to a farm by Lake Pomme de Terre, Stevens.Co.MN.  In 1908, he was a rural mail carrier until months before his death.  In 1912, the Scobey family moved into Morris, Stevens.Co.MN.  Charles R. A. Scobey died 1923Sep02, Morris.MN, age 72.  His wife Elizabeth, died 38yrs later, 1961Oct26, age 91. 

Mansfield Daniels, genealogy:
Daniels.Co.MT (part of Sheridan) was named after Mansfield Daniels just after his death.
Mansfield named the village of Scobey after his close friend from the Ft.Peck Agency, C.R.A. Scobey

(Anderson) Scobey.  With them he came to Iowa, in March, 1859, and the succeeding ten years of his life were spent in Delaware County, when the family came to Fayette. His education was acquired in the Upper Iowa University, after which for three years he was employed as merchant's clerk in Fayette, and then engaged in merchandising in that town for himself (George Scobey) in company with his brother, C. R. A. Scobey, under the firm name of Scobey Brothers, which connection continued some seven or eight years, when they sold out (Bro. C.R.A. had settled on ranch land in the Glendive, Dawson.Co.MT, area. GeoP would continue the Scobey Store on the SW corner of Main/State in Fayette.IA).  Mr. (GeoP) Scobey then engaged in his present business and formed the existing partnership with Messrs. Taylor & Farr in 1887. This firm does the largest livestock business of any in the country. Their annual business amounts to $250,000 and upwards. In addition to their usual shipping trade, they import and keep constantly on hand a number of fine Norman and French coach stock horses.

...1821,after; Fur trading on the Upper Missouri River was changing as 'companies' merged, declined, started up.  Government regulations were also involved.  Web searched will produce an abundance of history data.
...Side wheel packet steam boats were operating by 1834 up the Missouri River as far as Montana Territory.  Even though smaller water craft were still being used on the Missouri, most commercial trader traffic was on the wood burning steam packet boats and later some stern wheelers.
...1864, The steamer Benton was launched and operated by Durfee & Peck most of its short life as it hit a snag sank in 1869.  In 1868 the Benton carried 250 tons of goods up the Missouri.
...1868,before,  Bro/law's Durfee & Peck were Indian Traders at Ft. Union (privately run fur trading post) and Ft. Buford (U.S. Army military post) on the Missouri River in Dakota Territory, both on the same route Lewis & Clark followed.  Indian trading posts/locations were very transitory, often only lasting a only a year or so. 
...Supply trips from the Durfee & Peck Office at St.L/St.Charles.MO, went up the Missouri river to the trading posts, usually in the early spring when water levels were higher and more stable.  The boats returned with fur and buffalo pelts.  When the water level allowed trips continued throughout the seasons.

...Durfee & Peck known trading posts were:  Ft.Sully.DT1869, Ft.Stevenson.DT1868, Ft.Union.DT1867, Ft. Buford.DT1867.  Durfee had posts at:  Mouth of Arkansas.River,  present location of Wichita.KS & other locations as an Indian trader with Kiowas, Comanches & Apaches in 1866.

Fort Peck Agency, Montana:
...1867 the Ft.Peck stockade was built as a trading post by Abel Farwell as part of the Durfee & Peck chain of trading posts along the Missouri River.  
...1867-1871, Ft.Peck, was the hub or river transportation coming upstream on the Missouri.
...1871, the Milk River Indian Agency was moved from the mouth of People's Creek on the Milk River to Ft. Peck stockade and represented the Assiniboine, and the  Brule, Teton, Hunkappa & Yanktonai Sioux tribes.
...1871-1879, Ft. Peck stockade served as a trading post and Indian Agency.  It never represented an Army outpost due to its terrain location.  The narrow strip of river bank shale 30-40 ft above the river, on which the stockade set was crumbling away.  The stockade was close enough to the Missouri River that sternwheelers could land at a wharf.  By about 1918, with the river channel changing, all traces of Ft. Peck were gone.
...The Ft. Peck stockade was a 100yd square with cottonwood log walls 12ft high set vertically, with 3 bastions (angular outward projections 'guarding' the outside of the wall), with four gateways on the front and two bastions on the rear. Inside the stockade were quarters for people, storehouses, blacksmith shop, stables, corral and a slaughterhouse.  Fort Peck was not an Army Post, but would at times serve as temporary headquarters for military men and commissioners sent out by the Government to negotiate with the Indians during the period before Custer's demise. Camps of passive Indians were generally found near the fort.
...In 1918, a channel shift by the Missouri River removed all traces of Ft. Peck.

...Web searches will readily produce information on the history of Montana and Dakota territories.
...The agency at Ft. Peck was 'responsible' for Assiniboine & Sioux in the MT counties of Roosevelt, Valley, Daniels, Sheridan. 
...Today the land area is abt. 3,289 sq.mi with a population of 10,321 at the 2k census.

...1871May, St.L.Paper:  The contract for supplies for the Indians on the Upper Missouri River has been awarded to Durfee & Peck, of Leavenworth.KS.  The steamer E.H. Durfee will begin to load immediately.
...1871Aug, Sioux.City:   An anonymous letter to Maj. Gen. Hancock, commanding Dept. Dakota, charges Messers. Durfee & Peck, who have charge of all trading posts on the Upper Missouri, with gross frauds, and abusing rights & privileges given by the Government.  The claims is Durfee & Peck have induced Ge. Stanley, Dist. Commander, to issue a general order prohibiting citizens or soldiers using goods purchased for their own used from any other person other than at Post Sutler.  It is also claimed Durffe & Peck refuse to carry to certain posts on their line of steamboats which as bee purchased for personal use  from any other than at Ft. Sutler.  It is claimed they have with countenance or connivance of the military authorities  prostituted their position to advance the their interests.

...1879July, The Indian Agency was moved to Poplar.Creek.MT, but retained the name Ft. Peck Indian Agency.  The trading post at old Ft. Peck was abandoned.
...1886, The Fort Peck Reservation was established, named after Col. Campbell Kennedy Peck of the trading post firm of Durfee & Peck.

Peck headquarters which was at  Poplar, in today's Roosevelt.Co.Mt.  Between 1901 and his death in1919, Mansfield,with is b/law Jacob Timmons established a major ranch along the Poplar River of about 2260a.

...1901, Major Charles Robert Anderson Scobey, agent on the Fort Peck Reservation and good friend of Mansfield Daniels, was instrumental in getting a post office for the new "settlement" which was named in his honor. 
...Business ventures began around the new post office and 'old' Scobey was formed to include; hotel, general store, saloon, blacksmith shop, livery stable, farm/ranch implement dealer, and others.
...Daniels wanted the Great Northern RR to extend a branch line to 'old' Scobey from the mainline through Poplar village, northward following the Poplar River drainage system to Scobey P.O.
...1912,  Daniels built a 20 plus room mansion, which included a ballroom, gas lighting, and waterworks at 'old' Scobey, as a RR was 'coming to town.'
...1913, The RR spurred off the main line at Bainville near the ND border, extended north to Plentywood, then westward toward 'old' Scobey.
...But the Great Northern had already determined the rails would end 1.5mi NE of Mansfield's town site of 'old' Scobey.
...1913.summer, A 'Hotel' was opened along the RR as a bordello by ‘One-Eyed’ Molly.  Nearly every building/business moved from the 'old' Scobey town site on the river bottom,1.5 miles northeast to form the new Scobey.
...1913.Thanksiving, the first train arrived in 'new' Scobey,' which had moved during the summer to the new location.

Mr. Cavanaugh was raised in this county and vicinity of Fayette and left here more than a dozen years ago and for a number of years was part owner in a horse ranch.  Later he became sheriff of Dawson county.  If we remember rightly he missed a term or two but last Fall was again elected.  The natural supposition is that some outlaw who should long ago have been hanged, had a grudge against him and being a coward took him by surprise and at a disadvantage.  Dominic has been a subscriber to this paper for sixteen years.  We very much regret to thus chronicle his death, and especially by the hand of a villainous and cowardly assassin.

 ..."GEORGE P. SCOBEY, of the firm of Scobey, Taylor & Farr, dealers in horses and other live stock, is a resident of Fayette. The firm has an office in West Union, and also in Fayette. Mr. Scobey was born in Litchfield County, Conn., April 27, 1851, and is a son of Z. D. and Eleanor E. (Anderson) Scobey, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. With them he came to Iowa, in March, 1859, and the succeeding ten years of his life were spent in Delaware County, when the family came to Fayette. His education was acquired in the Upper Iowa University, after which for three years he was employed as merchant's clerk in Fayette, and then engaged in merchandising in that town for himself in company with his brother, C. R. A. Scobey, under the firm name of Scobey Brothers, which connection continued some seven or eight years, when they sold out. Mr. Scobey then engaged in his present business and formed the existing partnership with Messrs. Taylor & Farr in 1887. This firm does the largest livestock business of any in the country. Their annual business amounts to $250,000 and upwards. In addition to their usual shipping trade, they import and keep constantly on hand a number of fine Norman and French coach stock horses. Mr. Scobey is the resident partner at Fayette, and does much of the business of the firm at home and in Eastern markets.
 ...On May 21, 1873, he was united in marriage with Miss Mattie E. Boyce, who was born in Plainfield, Carroll County, Ill., May 9, 1852, and with her parents, Joseph E. and Mary (Titsworth) Boyce came to Fayette, which has since been her home. Her mother died September 21, 1882. Her father survives and is now a resident of Sioux Falls, S. D. Four children, three sons and a daughter grace the union of Mr. and Mrs. Scobey: Edmund B., born April 10, 1876; Mary Eleanor, March 23, 1878; Charles Wilbur, April 28, 1881; and Frank Henry, April 1, 1883.

ELBERT H. ESTEY, Fitch’s '1910 History of Fayette.Co.IA,' p.1194:
...Holding prestige among the successful attorneys of Fayette and adjoining counties, Elbert H. Estey, while yet a young man, has proven his worth to rank with the leading professional men in a community long noted for its high order of talent, especially along legal lines, and the study of such a life cannot fail of interest and incentive, as he is distinctively representative of his sphere of activity and has contributed in no small measure to the general uplift of West Union and the locality which is his home and field of operation, at the same time establishing a reputation for honor and integrity. Mr. Estey is a member of the firm of Clements & Estey, and he was born in the city of Fayette, this county, November 4, 1873. He is the son of Charles P. and Mary (Scott) Estey, the father a native of Vermont and the mother of Ohio, the latter being the daughter of William Scott, who was among the early settlers of Dover township and where the family is still represented.
...Elbert H. Estey's paternal grandfather, Warren Estey, was an early settler of Winneshiek county. Charles P. Estey lived for a time at Postville, Allamakee county, but he came to Fayette about 1871. His family consisted of three daughters and one son, Elbert H. of this review being the youngest; his sisters are, Carrie, who married Rev. M. T. Miller, of Colorado, a minister in the Methodist Episcopal church; Addie, who has remained unmarried is a talented lecturer and reformer, engaged in the work of the Woman's Christian Temperance Union, located at Des Moines, Iowa; Blanche is the wife of Rev. George C. Fort and is located at Salina, Kansas. All the family except the youngest sister are graduates of the Upper Iowa University. The father of these children is a painter and decorator, having made this his life work and he is very adroit in the use of the brush, his services having always been in great demand. He and his wife make their home in Fayette, where they are highly esteemed by a wide circle of friends.
...Elbert H. Estey, after completing his college course, performed in a very commendable manner the duties of court reporter in the thirteenth judicial district for a period of two years, during the term of Judge William A. Hoyt. All the while he studied law during his spare moments, having decided early in life to devote his energies to the legal profession. He took a law course at the State University of Minnesota, where he made a good record and from which institution he was graduated in June, 1896. He soon returned to Iowa and opened an office in the city of Waterloo and he practiced there with a very satisfactory clientele for a period of seven years and became one of the leading members of the bar of that place, but desiring to return to his home county, he began practice in West Union on December 1, 1905, and has been here to the present time, his record at the Fayette county bar having been one of honor and credit and has won the admiration of his clients and contemporaries at the bar. He was associated with the late David W. Clements, one of the leading lawyers of this district, the firm of Clements & Estey having been a most potent one in all local courts.
...Mr. Estey was married on August 19, 1903, to Mary E. Scobey, daughter of George P. and Martha B. Scobey, a prominent early family of Fayette, where the father was long a leading merchant and where his death occurred on February 2, 1904. The mother is still living. One son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Estey, Robert, born July 17, 1907. He and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church, and politically Mr. Estey is a Republican. Fraternally, he is a member of the West Union Lodge No. 69, Ancient Free and Accepted Masons, and the West Union lodge of the Knights of Pythias.

WILBUR FISK BOYCE, Fitch’s '1910 Histtory of Fayette.Co.IA,' p1264
...The financial and commercial history of Fayette county would be incomplete and unsatisfactory without personal mention of those whose lives are interwoven so closely with the industrial and financial development of this portion of the state. When a man, or a number of men, set in motion the machinery of business, which materializes into many forms of practical utility, or where they have carved out a fortune or a name from the common possibilities, open for competition to all, there is a natural public desire, which should be gratified to see them as nearly as a word artist can paint them. The examples they furnish of patient purpose and steadfast integrity strongly illustrate what it is in the power of each to accomplish. Some men belong to no exclusive class in life; apparently insurmountable obstacles have in many instances awakened their faculties and served as a stimulus to carry them to ultimate success. The gentleman whose life history is here outlined lived to a good purpose and achieved a much greater degree of success than falls to the lot of the average individual. By a straightforward and commendable course he made his way to a respectable position in the business world, winning the hearty admiration of the people of his county and earning a reputation as an enterprising, progressive man of affairs, which the public was not slow to recognize and appreciate.
...Wilbur Fisk Boyce was born on the 21st day of June, 1846, in Kendall county, Illinois, and was a son of Joseph Boyce. an early merchant and for many years a prominent citizen of Fayette, having retired in later life. In 1857 Mr. Boyce accompanied his parents on their removal to near Waterloo, Iowa, and in1861 accompanied them to Fayette and from that time up to the date of his death, which occurred on January 18, 1906, he was closely identified with Fayette county. At Fayette he passed from youth to manhood and became the clerk of his father, who was then carrying on a general store. When his father sold out, the subject remained as clerk for four years. He then, in 1876, entered business for himself, purchasing a lumber yard, which he continued to operate until his death, a period of about twenty-eight years. If you would know the history of his dealings in the lumber business, ask the hundreds of men who were his customers. He was a man of keen discernment and could generally calculate successfully the outcome of a transaction, his judgment being highly valued by his business associates and others with whom he had dealings. Shrewd and sagacious, he gave careful attention to every detail of his business affairs, and this was the keynote to his success. Honorable in his dealings with others, he earned and retained a high position in the esteem of all who knew him. Public spirited and progressive, he gave unstintedly his support and influence to every measure which had for its object the advancement of the best interests of the community, and much of the success of the Upper Iowa University was attributed to his valued services as a member of the board of trustees of that institution, in the welfare of which he was particularly interested.
...Politically, Mr. Boyce was a Republican and he took all intelligent and active interest in the success of his party. He was converted when about twenty years of age and was ever after faithful to his religious duties. As time passed he was given positions of trust in the church, having served many years as chairman of the board of stewards and also as a trustee. For twelve years he served as a member of the town council and on the school board for a number of years. He was a good citizen in all the term implies and his death was deplored in all circles of society. His geniality was greater than the average and in his home life he was a model, and loved best of all the quiet of his own fireside. In all relations with his fellow beings he was an example worthy of emulation.
...On October 19, 1869, Mr. Boyce was married to Julia Ann Robertson, daughter of James E. and Elizabeth (Alexander) Robertson, and to this union were born two children, Eva Louise, deceased, and George Edmond, an optician at Waterloo. Aside from his wife and son, Mr. Boyce left a sister, Mrs. Mattie Scobey, and a brother, J. H. Boyce, both of Fayette.
Levi L. Farr, Page 426 - 1891 Portrait & Biographical Album of Fayette.Co.IA
..."Levi L. Farr, of the firm of Scobey, Taylor & Farr, dealers in and shippers of horses and other live stock, has carried on business in this line in West Union since 1887. He is a native of Illinois. On the 2d of May, 1839, he was born in De Kalb County, gracing the union of James and Electa (Hollenbeck) Farr. His father was born in the Empire State in 1798, and died in the fall of 1873, at the ripe old age of seventy-five years. His mother, who was born in Pennsylvania, on the 23d of July, 1812, is still living and makes her home in West Union. In early life his parents were both residents of Ohio, whence they removed in 1836, to De Kalb County, Ill., where they were among the early pioneers.
...Levi Farr, whose name heads this sketch, spent the days of his boyhood and youth in the usual manner of farmer lads, and in the schools of the neighborhood acquired his education. On attaining to mature years he chose as a companion on life's journey, Miss Catherine Gable. They were joined in wedlock in De Kalb, on the 3d of January, 1859. The lady was born near Buffalo, N. Y., and her father was William Gable. They have three children, daughters: Gena, the eldest, is the wife of J. G. McMasters, of West Union, now County Recorder; Rena and Helen reside with their parents.
...The year 1862 witnessed the arrival of Mr. Farr and his family in this county, and in Fayette he took up his location. On the 22d of September of that year, prompted by his patriotic spirit, he responded to his country's call for troops, and enlisted with the boys in blue of Company C, Sixth Iowa Cavalry, serving three years. His regiment was assigned to the department of the West, on duty among the Indian reservations, and participated in the battle of White Stone Hill, Dak., September 3, 1863, where the Sixth Iowa performed the task of surrounding the Indians and driving them in. When night closed down around them, the Indians succeeded in beating a retreat, and the regiment went into camp on the battlefield. On the 28th of July, 1864, the Sixth Iowa Cavalry took part in the engagement with the Indians at Tahkahokutah, where the red men were driven out of their position among the rocks. On the 8th of August, the regiment had a skirmish with a heavy force of Indians on the Little Missouri, after which it went into winter quarters at Sioux City, Iowa, and was there mustered out October 17, 1865.
...On his return from the war, Mr. Farr resumed the occupation of farming in this county, which he followed in pursuit of fortune until 1878, when he was elected to the office of County Sheriff. So ably did he discharge the duties of that position, that he was re-elected and served for six years, and then acted as Deputy Sheriff for four years. In 1887 he formed a partnership with O. E. Taylor in the livery business, and subsequently in the horse and live stock business. In addition to their extensive trade in buying and shipping horses, this company keeps on hand a number of the finest heavy draft French stock. As a business man and citizen, Mr. Farr's course has been one to command confidence and respect. He made a faithful and competent Sheriff for six years, and was always reliable in the discharge of duty. In politics he is a stalwart supporter of Republican principles, and has exerted his influence and given his support for the advancement and welfare of that party. Socially he is a member of West Union Lodge, No. 25, A. O. U. W., and of Abernethy Post, No. 48, G. A. R. of West Union."

The Fayette Journal:  About 1867, Daniel VINES started the Fayette Journal and in a short time O. C. COLE bought into the business, some new material was added and the name was changed to the Volga Valley Times. Under this name and ownership the paper was published until 1874, when it was sold to J. D. BURCH and John O'Brien SCOBEY, after a brief period of suspension. They renamed the paper the Fayette News. They published for a year and sold out to S. D. HELMS, who sold to A. E. WINROTT and Theodore FREER, who changed the name to 'the Clarion.'  Freer sold to Winrott and the Clarion became a two-town organ, The HOBSON brothers of West Union taking half an interest. The two-town arrangement didn't last long. Mr. Winrott continued the paper until 1883, when he moved it to Calmar.

' Portrait & Biographical Album of Fayette.Co.IA,' 1891, p.360:
...Robert Alexander, deceased. Of the worthy citizens whose lives have blessed Fayette County none deserves a higher encomium than Robert Alexander and his wife Elizabeth. He was a man of splendid business capacity, and of vast possessions accumulated by legitimate means which he used in a signal way to advance the cause of education and Christian culture. He was born near Knoxville, Tenn., May 2, 1794, and in his youth removed to within a few miles of Nashville, where he served an apprenticeship to the hatter's trade. In 1814 he went with his brother Thomas to Brooksville, Franklin County, Ind., where he divided his time between his trade and the schoolroom. It was there he married Miss Elizabeth Crist, the wedding being celebrated April 25, 1816. The lady was born December 5, 1796, at Lawrenceburg, Ind. The same year of their marriage they removed to Connersvile, Ind., where he pursued his trade four years very successfully after which he went to Falls Creek, near the present city of Indianapolis. The extreme fertility of the soil suggested a change of occupation and we find him, about that time, engaging in agricultural pursuits but the climate proved to him unhealthy and caused his removal in 1825 to LaFayette, Ind. The journey was made with ox-teams and on the way he purchased apple trees at Crawfordsville, that he might soon have a growing orchard. On arriving at LaFayette, Ind. he had $150 in cash and his household which he unloaded at the foot of a tree. He soon felled the tree, split rails and made a pen which he covered with clapboards. His prudent wife hung up bed quilts about the pen, making it like a cozy playhouse. Soon a hewed log cabin was erected and the work of developing the farm begun. At the end of ten years he sold out for $10,000 and in 1836 moved to Parish Grove on the great thoroughfare to Chicago. There he kept a tavern and extensively engaged in farming. When the Black Hawk War came on he bore his part in the struggle, as he ever did when duty called him.
...In June, 1849, Mr. Alexander arrived in this county and purchased a large tract of land to which he added from time to time until he owned nine thousand acres. When it was proposed to establish a seminary in Fayette, he was one of the very first to contribute to the enterprise. His maiden donation was $5,000, to which he soon added an equal amount. The building was partly completed when it was found necessary to borrow $12,000. Mr. Alexander, being the only man able to secure so large amount, offered a mortgage on one thousand five hundred acres of land as security, which was accepted. Hard times came on, the debt piled 'mountain high,' $48,000 being its total. By law only the fifteen hundred acres could be taken, but rather than have the school encumbered and he seem in any way evading his obligations, he turned over four thousand acres of his land. His dealings were ever marked by honesty and integrity. He was accommodating and benevolent, and as the early settlers came into the county he entertained them and helped them get locations without compensation. Until some sixty years of age he made no profession of religion; at that time however, he united with the Methodist Episcopal Church and lived consistently in that faith, as his wife had done from the age of fourteen years. Politically, he was an old-line Whig until the rise of the Republican party, to the principles of which he ever afterwards adhered. He died November 23, 1862, and his wife survived him fifteen years, dying April 1, 1877. She was a woman of rare mold, intensely religious, intelligent, prudent and withal possessed of great good sense. Of their ten children only six lived - Mrs. Sabra Robertson, Mrs. Elizabeth Robertson, Noah, Mrs. Hannah Chamberlain, Mrs. Emeline Hulbert and Mrs. Catherine (nee Alexander) Scobey (2nd wf of ZD Socbey)."
