DAVID WOOLLEY first saw the light in Jefferson County, Indiana, following farming--the occupation of his father--until he was about thirty years old. At the outbreak of the war, Mr. Woolley (having previously settled in Iowa) joined the ranks of the Eleventh Iowa Volunteer Infantry, being part of the time under the command of Gen. McPherson, following Sherman in his march through Georgia, and was present at most of the actions fought during that campaign.

He was mustered out in 1865 and came to Creston in 1870, since which time he has been identified with the interests of the town and has occupied various public offices during his residence here. In the present year, Mr. Woolley visited the Black Hills, and on his return to Creston was welcomed by the citizens with an ovation which very few who witnessed will ever forget.

Mr. Woolley, although noted for his kindly disposition and domestic inclinations, has never assumed the responsibility of a benedict, but has so far passed his life in single blessedness. He, in a large degree, possesses the confidence and esteem of his fellow-citizens.
