Samuel Kellogg, farmer, section 21, Lodomillo Township,
was born near Rochester, N.Y., Jan. 15, 1824, and was a
son of Alfred and Maxy P. Kellogg, nee Brumbley, natives
of New York. In 1845 he came with his father to Clayton
County, and settled in Lodomillo Township, where he still
resides. He was married here to Miss Mary C. White. They
have had four children -- Frank, who first married Lydia
Smith, and was married the second time to Cynthia
Sylevester; William F., married Dora Shotts; Ester, wife
of John Hines; and Fannie A., now Mrs. Thomas Adams.
After his marriage Mr. Kellogg pre-empted a claim of
eight acres, which he now owns, and has all under
excellent improvement except seventeen acres of timber.
In politics, he affilitiates with the Republican party.
He is one of the pioneers of Clayton County, having been
identified with its interests since 1845, and has seen it
change from an unbroken country inhabited by wild game
and Indians, into one of the finest counties in the great
grain-producing State of Iowa.
