A. C. GOCHANOIER
A. C. Gochanoier resides upon section 1. He owns a farm of three hundred and twenty acres in sections 1 and 12. He settled here in March, 1883, buying his land, which was unimproved, of S.M. Ballard, paying for the same twenty dollars per acre. He has one hundred and forty acres broken, and one hundred and twenty acres of timber. This will prove a valuable farm. Mr. Gochanoier was born in LaSalle county, Illinois, in 1852. He was there reared to the occupation of farming. His father, J.C. Gochanoier, was a native of Ohio, and removed to Illinois at an early day. He is still a prominent farmer of LaSalle county, in that State. Mr. Gochanoier came west to obtain a larger farm than he would otherwise have, and has been fortunate in his choice of a location, having a large and excellent farm. He was married to Eva I., daughter of John A. Parker, of this township. They have four children -- May Belle, Lilly, Franklin E., and Esther.
