I purchased the book "Personalities of the West and Midwest" at a garage sale in 2002 and have been posting biographies with birth dates prior to 1912. Some of the bios are pretty lengthy, so I will just post that information pertinent to genealogy. If this person is related to you, please contact me for any other information the book may contain.
I hope I am able to be helpful in your search.
