Biography of James M. Teasley

James M. Teasley was born in Whitfield County, Georgia, in 1858, a son of Allen D. and Rhoda M. Teasley. The Teasley family came to Kansas in 1866, when James was about eight years of age. They came by way of Nashville, Tennessee, to St. Louis, thence by boat to Kansas City and reached the Solomon Valley by wagon and team. The Teasleys settled in a portion of Cloud County south of what is now called the Town of Glasco. The first homestead of the family is now the Charles Horn Place. Mr. James M. Teasley is of English origin, his grand-father having come from England to America. The Teasleys forty or fifty years ago shared in all the customs and practices of pioneer life. During the winter season they used buffalo robes in abundance as artieles of clothing, and the floors of their houses were often carpeted with similar robes. They were prominent leaders among the parties of buffalo hunters who scoured the plains and killed great numbers of those animals both for meat and the skins. Discover your family's story.

Biography of Riley Louthan V. S.

Riley Louthan, V. S. As more and more importance is paid every year to the handling of live stock on the farms of Kansas, so in proportion is the profession of veterinary surgery appreciated and increased in its scope of usefulness. It is through that profession that Riley Louthan is best known in the community of Glasco in Cloud County. He is a self-made man, in as much as he had succeeded in building up for himself a large practice under very discouraging circumstances. His knowledge of veterinary surgery might be called a natural product of experience and books. Such knowledge, while it comes slowly and painfully, is tenaciously retained in the mind of the pupil. Mr. Louthan never had the benefit of college training, yet success had followed his practice in the treatment of all varieties of domestic animals. He began treating veterinary diseases as a boy, but since 1901 had made a specialty of it. Mr. Louthan was born in Cloud County, Kansas, and with the exception of five years in Missouri had lived in the county all his life. His parents were Edmond and Mary J. Louthan, who came from Indiana to Kansas in 1871. They took up a homestead in the county. Edmond Louthan died in 1914. He was twice married, and is the father of four children, one by his first wife, who was...

Biography of John M. Copeland

John M. Copeland is one of the three survivors of that group of pioneers who constituted the original settlement of Glasco in Cloud County.

His part had been an honorable one, had been useful both in what he had accomplished as a private citizen and as a business man and public spirited factor in local affairs. Apart from his service as a soldier during the Civil war his life had not been one of conspicuous activities, and his accomplishments have come through the formal expression and exercise of the strength and talents granted him and through a realization of his personal responsibilities and duties to his community. Though Cloud County had been settled and occupied by white men less than half a century, only a few parcels of land do not show several ownerships and transfers. An exception to this rule is the case of Mr. Copeland, who still owned the old homestead which he took up in 1870. The first year he came here he broke some of his land and succeeded by the following year in making the products of his farm support himself and family. Only a few of the early settlers were able to do this. Mr. Copeland was one of the associates who laid out the...
