William Scandridge, who owns an excellent farm in Pilot township, comprising one hundred acres of land, is giving
special attention to the raising of hogs, which he finds a profitable occupation. He was born in Philadelphia,
Pennsylvania, on the 2d of February, 1868, a son of James and Sarah Scandridge, further mention of whom appears
elsewhere in this work.
William Scandridge remained at home until he was of age and then engaged in work as a farm hand for eleven years.
At the end of that time he had accumulated sufficient capital to enable him to purchase land in Lincoln township
but after living there a year he traded the place for his present hundred acre farm on section 6, Pilot township.
Although he follows general agricultural pursuits he specializes to some extent in the raising of high grade hogs.
His place is well improved and his labors yield him a good income.
On the 10th of February, 1897, Mr. Scandridge was married to Miss Angie E. Shall, a native of Sumner township and
a daughter of Martin S. and Rebecca Ellen (Rosenberger) Shall. Both of her parents were born in Ohio but removed
to Iowa county, Iowa, in pioneer days and are still living in Sumner township. They are the parents of eleven children,
of whom ten survive. Mr. and Mrs. Scandridge have three children: May Anna, who was born on the 3tst of December,
1898; Orvil William, born February 26, 1902; and Esther Alma, born March 12, 1905.
Mr. Scandridge supports the republican party at the polls and as school director did all in his power to further
the interests of the public school system. Both he and his wife hold membership in the Methodist Protestant church
and conform their lives to the teachings of that organization. He is respected by those who know him as a man of
energy and good judgment and none have ever questioned his probity and integrity.
