Biography of Albert L. Egy

Albert L. Egy. A retired cattleman and a bank director at Newton, A. L. Egy had had many interests to identify him with Harvey County, in which part of Kansas he had spent all the years of his life since early boyhood. Albert Lorenzo Egy was born at Wenona, Illinois, September 9, 1863. Going back several generations to his great-grandfather, the family came from Germany. His father, the late Solomon Egy, was a prominent pioneer of Harvey County. Born in Washington County, Pennsylvania, December 31, 1827, he grew up in that rugged and historic section of the Keystone State, afterwards moved to Marion County, Ohio, where he married, and soon after that event went to Wenona, Illinois. In 1868 he transferred his home to Caldwell County, Missouri, and on April 18, 1871, arrived in Kansas and homesteaded 160 acres six miles north of Newton. He was a blacksmith by trade, and he used that employment to give him his start in life. After coming to Kansas he showed very successful ability as a farmer, acquired 400 acres in Harvey County, improved it with fine buildings and other facilities, and at one time it was the highest taxed farm in Highland Township. He left this farm at his death and the estate some years later sold it. Solomon Egy died on the old homestead north of Newton June 27, 1904. He began voting as a democrat, but after Cleveland’s second election he turned republican and was very aggressive in that party, his home being the republican headquarters in Highland Township. He was a charter member of Newton Lodge No. 142,...
