Biography of Warren L. Bishop
Washington County, IA Biographies





Warren L. Bishop, who is conducting a feed yard in Wellman, was born in Cedar township, this county, on the 4th of April, 1868, and is a son of Sanders E. and Mary E. (Livingston) Bishop. His youthful days were spent under the parental roof. He remained at home until twenty one years of age and acquired his early education in the public schools. He early became familiar with the duties and labors of the farm from the time of early spring planting until crops were harvested in the late autumn and when he attained his majority he rented the old homestead, which he continued to cultivate and improve until 1908. In 1900, with the money which he had carefully saved from his earnings he purchased eighty acres on section 8, Cedar township, and with characteristic energy began to develop his own property, cultivating it successfully until December, 1908. At that date he builf a feed yard in Wellman, one hundred and twenty feet square, and removed to the city, where he has since conducted business, having a gratifying and growing patronage at this point.

Mr. Bishop was married in 1901 to Miss Anna L. Armacost, who was born in Ohio in 1877. Her parents are still living and make their home in Appanoose county, Iowa. They had a family of four children, including Mrs. Bishop, who by her marriage has become the mother of three children: Hilma, born November 24, 1903; Florence, who first opened her eyes to the light of day on the 21st of October, 1905; and Hugh A., whose birth occurred March 1, 1909. Both Mr. and Mrs. Bishop are consistent and faithful members of the Methodist Episcopal church and his political support is given to the democracy. He has served as road supervisor and was a member of the school board for two terms. He is always interested in matters relative to the public welfare and especially in anything which relates to the progress and upbuilding of his native county, within whose borders he has spent his entire life. Industry and perseverance have ever been numbered among his salient characteristics and have brought him whatever measure of success he has enjoyed in his business career.
