Biographical Sketch of Ferdinand Tourney

Ferdinand Tourney was born in Ohio, November 15, 1833. His parents moved to Illinois when he was about six months old, and there Ferdinand was reared and educated. He began life as a farmer and continued that business during his residence in Illinois. In the spring of 1862 he came to this State and settled in Daviess county, and immediately engaged in farming.

Mr. Tourney is a man of fine business qualifications, and his reputation for fair dealing with his fellow-men has won for him many warm friends. He was married in Livingston county, this State, in November, 1866, to Miss Laura Hultz. Mr. and Mrs. Tourney are the parents of eight children, named Margarent A., James P., Frank M., Charles E., Anderson, Donazila, Ora A. and Mary E.
