One of the enterprising young farmers and stock-raisers of Liberty township, Woodson County, is Albert D. Coe, who was born in Livingston County, Illinois, on the 6th. of May, 1873, the second son of Albert and Farsina Coe. He remained in Illinois until eight years of age and then accompanied his parents on their removal to Kansas in 1881. He ac-


quired a knowledge of the common English branches of learning in the district schools and afterward entered the high school of Yates Center, while later he spent two years in the Agricultural College, at Manhattan, Kansas, pursuing the scientific course. At the time of his marriage his father gave him eighty acres of land upon which he has erected a nice home and is now comfortably situated in life, devoting his energies to the improvement of his land and to the raising of stock. He now has forty head of cattle. He is also connected with his father and brothers in the raising of hay, carrying on the business quite extensively and securing a good income as the reward of their labor when the hay is placed upon the market.

On the 31st. of March, 1898, Mr. Coe was united in marriage to Miss Mabel T. Rose, a native of Toronto, Canada, born November 24, 1874, and a daughter of Amzi and Lottie Rose. During her early girlhood her parents came to Kansas, and her father is now engaged in business in Garnett, this state. The marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Coe has been blessed with one child, Ruth M., who was born May 23, 1900. In his political views Mr. Coe is a Republican, but office seeking has no attraction for him, as he prefers to increase his income through the legitimate channels of business, and his future will undoubtedly be a successful one.
