W.L.YOUNG, organizer and cashier of the Farmer's State Bank of Greentop, is a native of Schuyler county. He was born two and a half miles west of Queen City, June 25, 1867. His parents were Wm. and Louise W. Young, both now deceased. Mr. Young lived on a farm with his parents in Adair county until his sixteenth year, when he went to Iowa where he worked as a hired hand on a farm during the summer and attended school in the winter doing chores for board for three years. He then returned to Schuyler and worked on the farm until in his 24th year. At this time he entered the Normal at Kirksville, after which he taught one term of school. In 1893 he engaged in the drug business in Greentop, and continued in this until 1903. On November 25 of that year, he with others, established the Farmer's State Bank, he being its first cashier. This position Mr. Young still holds, and is a splendid man. Later he with B. L. Eastir established the Greentop Lumber Co.

Mr. Young was married November 19, 1895 to Miss Lucy A. Tice of Greentop. To this union was born six children, namely: James F., born July 27, 1897; George L., June 7, 1899; John E., August 10, 1902; Fred Tice, November 27, 1904; Charles W., July 17, 1906; and Lucy L., July 11, 1908.

Politically Mr. Young is a Democrat, and for twelve years has been a member of the Democratic Central Committee from Salt River township and is at present the Secretary of the Democratic Central Committee of Schuyler County. While Mr. Young is actively interested in politics, he has never aspired to office. He is a valuable member of the I.O.O.F lodge of Greentop, and of the A.F. & A.M of Queen City. He is widely acquainted.
