GEORGE NAPPER. Many of the residents of Christian County, Missouri, are of British birth and have engrafted upon western ways the habits of the sturdy Saxon race. George Napper was born in England about fifty-nine years ago, and when young learned the blacksmith’s trade, following the same for about thirty-two years. For some years he was in the service of the British Government, but about 1870 he came to the United States and for about three years resided at Rock, Wisconsin, where he worked at his trade. Thence he moved to Christian County, Missouri, and located north of Billings, where he resided for two years, when he moved two and a half miles southeast of that town and made his home there until a few years ago, when he removed to Verona. His farm of 400 acres, near Billings, is one of the best improved tracts in southwest Missouri and on it is a good dwelling. Everything about the place indicates that an experienced hand is at the helm, for the house and farm are in the best of order. Mr. Napper also owns considerable real estate at Billings and more at Verona. He is a thoroughgoing, active business man, and, although he came to this country with very little capital, by industry and good management he has become one of the substantial men of the county.

He was married in the old country to Miss Mary A. Peters, who died in 1883. She was an excellent woman and a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Their daughter is now Mrs. Dr. York, of Billings. Mr. Napper selected his second wife in the person of a Miss Brown.
