Joseph Scandridge, who owns one hundred and sixty acres of excellent land in Pilot township, is giving much
attention to stock raising and finds that occupation very profitable. He was born in this county on the r3th of
September, 1882, of the marriage of James and Sarah Scandridge, further mention of whom is made elsewhere in this
Joseph Scandridge remained at home until he attained his majority and then worked as a farm hand until 1904, when
he purchased his present farm, which comprises one hundred and sixty acres on sections 7 and 18, Pilot township.
He concentrates his energies largely upon the raising and feeding of stock and is meeting with gratifying success
in that occupation. He understands the principles that underlie stock raising and takes great care to secure the
proper housing and feed for his animals, which are of a high grade.
In 1903 Mr. Scandridge married Miss Emma Davis, who was born in this state and is a daughter of Thomas Davis, a
sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this volume. Mr. and Mrs. Scandridge have a son, Lloyd E., who was born on
the 31st of May, 1904.
Mr. Scandridge is a republican but has never desired to hold public office, although he manifests a commendable
interest in public affairs. His wife belongs to the Methodist Protestant church and takes an active part in its
work. Mr. Scandridge is one of the most successful of the younger generation of stock raisers and his work is characterized
by energy and progressiveness, qualities which do much to insure success in any line of endeavor.
