Biography of Charles J. Price

Topeka had in Charles J. Price as a resident one of the most capable mining engineers of the country. His had been an experience very much out of the ordinary. Nearly forty years ago he was a mine worker in the Black Hill region. He had a practical working knowledge of the mincral sections of the northwest country. He spent a number of years as a mining engineer in South Africa, and probably no American citizen had a closer knowledge of the people, the industrial conditions, of South Africa than Mr. Price. While there he served with the rank of captain in the British army during the Boer war. Born in County Kent, England, January 20, 1857, he was brought by his parents in 1858 to the United States. John and Buth (Relf) Price located in Sullivan County, New York, where his father was engaged in railroad construction work. In 1869, having a relative in Kansas and thinking that better opportunities were to be found in the West, John Price moved to Atchison and while there assisted in building the Missouri Pacific and Atchison and Nebraska (now a part of the Burlington system) Railroad. All his later years were spent in Kansas, and he died in Topeka in 1912. His widow still survives him and lives with her daughter, Mrs. Charles McClintock, in Topeka. All of their nine children...

Biography of Judson Wheeler Mitchell

Judson Wheeler Mitchell, manager of The Emporia Ice & Cold Storage Company, had been a Kansas business man for a quarter of a century. He was born at West Damascus, Pennsylvania, July 2, 1863, and was the son of Harvey Wheeler and Mary E. (Avery) Mitchell. The Mitchells were originally a Scotch family, one branch of which settled in England in the seventeenth century. Matthew Mitchell came to America in 1635, making the voyage in “The Good Ship James,” which was accompanied by an armed vessel, “The Angel Gabriel.” He landed at Boston, and later settled at Stamford, Connecticut, where he died in 1647. The fourth generation of his descendants settled in the Delaware Valley, purchasing 750 acres of land where Cochecton, New York, and Damascus, Pennsylvania are now situated. The subject of this sketch was the grandson of John Tyler and Almira Wheeler Mitchell, the latter being a daughter of Major Ebenezer Wheeler, who served his country through the War of 1812. Mr. Mitchell had in his possession the letters written from army headquarters to Major Wheeler’s family during the second war. Through his mother, Mary E. (Avery) Mitchell, Mr. Mitchell is descended from the Groton branch of the Averys in America. The founder, Christopher Avery, came to America from Salisbury, Wilts County, England, in company with John Winthrop, landing at Salem, Massachusetts, June 12, 1680. Harvey Wheeler...

Not the good that comes to us but the good that comes to the world through us is the measure of our success, and judged by this standard as well as by the ratings of the business world Hon. Charles E. Linderman was a most successful man. He was numbered among the prominent, valued, honored and respected citizens of southwestern Iowa and left the impress of his individuality for good on its substantial development and improvement. He stood for high ideals in citizenship, in business affairs and in private life, and the nobility of his manhood made him most honored and respected where best known. A native of Orange county, New York, Mr. Linderman was born near Bloomingburg, February 4, 1829, and was of German lineage on the paternal side and of Irish descent on the maternal side. He was the ninth in order of birth in a family of eleven children and his early education, acquired in the common schools near his boyhood’s home, was supplemented by study in the academy at Bloomingburg, while in 1851 he entered Hamilton College, at Clinton, New York, and was graduated from that institution with the class of 1854.
