WILLIAM T. IDE, Jr., was born in Seekonk, Bristol County, Mass. His boyhood and youth were spent on the farm where he was born, and where he acquired the rudiments of that knowledge which he has since developed in Illinois and Iowa into one of the most careful, energetic and successful farmers and stockraisers of his neighborhood. At the age of twenty-four, he, in company with his brother, G. A. Ide, left their home in New England and emigrated to Illinois, locating in Bureau County, where they bought a fine fruit and stock farm, which they owned for four years, and where William T. was married to Miss Amelia Cushing. In 1870, they sold their farm in Illinois and removed to this county, locating on Section 6, Grant Township, where he now resides, owning 332 acres of improved land, second to none in the county. Recently he has made liberal in- vestments in thoroughbred Short Horn cattle, and can show some very fine stock, which needs to be seen only to be appreciated.
