      LYON COUNTY, Part 22

      FREMONT TOWNSHIP. . . .

      WILLIAM HOLLINGSWORTH, farmer, Section 35, Township 18, Range 11, P. O. Emporia, was born January 13, 1817, in Union County, Ind., where he was brought up on a farm, receiving a common school education. In the spring of 1841 he removed to Wayne County, where he remained, engaged in foundry and machine business until he came to Kansas. In the fall of 1860 he located in Lyon County, renting a farm on Allen Creek, in Fremont Township, which he operated three years. In 1863 he bought 120 acres of partly improved land, situated at the junction of Taylor and Allen creeks, upon which he removed and began to improve. He has ever since continued to operate this farm. In 1870, he built a commodious dwelling, and also has upon the place a barn, corn cribs and other farm buildings, and an orchard of about 200 apple, 400 peach and 80 pear trees, besides two acres of smaller fruits. He raises some cattle and hogs; his principal crop is corn. He is a member of the Neosho Grange No. 523, P. of H. He has held the office of Treasurer of Fremont Township two years and been a member of the School Board five years. He married Miss Martha A. Cooney, of Union County, Ind., September 26, 1838, by which marriage he has had ten children, of whom Ellen F., Benjamin Franklin, Salathiel, Mary, Elizabeth, Thos. Harmon and Charles P. are now living. Mr. and Mrs. H. are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
