W. C. YARD is a native of Venango County, Pa., where he was born, in 1837, and received an education. In 1857, he taught his first term of school at Sharpsville, Pa., and the following year was married to Miss Lizzie Willyard. At the breaking out of the war, he joined the Fourth Pennsylvania Cavalry, under the command of Col. Childs, and was present at the battle of Antietam and, also, that of Fredericksburg. In April, 1863, he was detailed for clerk service in the Second Brigade of Second Cavalry Corps, which position he held until his term of service expired.

In the spring of 1866, he sold his interest in Pennsylvania and came to Union County, Iowa, and shortly after engaged to teach the graded school at Afton, which he taught for seven months, since which time he has been engaged almost exclusively in teaching in Union and contiguous counties.
