GEORGE F. ISGRIG, attorney, was born in Crawford County, Mo., on the 26th day of November, 1859. There, upon
the banks of the Cotowa, young Isgrig was reared on a farm, plowing corn in summer, fishing and hunting through
the long autumn, and attending school at the primitive log schoolhouse during the short, rigorous Missouri winter.
He was a studious reader of the St. Louis Globe, the only Republican newspaper taken in the neighborhood. In 1877,
he came to Tipton and attended the high school, and by close application to his studies completed the full four
years' course of that institution in eight or ten months, and graduated in June, 1879. In the same month, he removed
to Kokomo, and entered upon the study of the law, pursuing his studies for three years, under the excellent tutelage
of J. Fred Vaile. While in Kokomo, during the campaign of 1880, he organized and became the President of the First
Voters' Republican Club, containing 184 members,a.ncl during this campaign made his maiden efforts from the stump.
In the spring of 1882, he came back to Tipton and was an aggressive candidate for Prosecuting Attorney of the Thirty
sixth Judicial District until the Central Committees declared that Howard County, not Tipton, was entitled to the
candidate. Then he withdraw from the race, and gave his support to the successful candidacy of Cassius C. Shirley.
In February, 1882, he was married to Miss Ella Small. Mr. Isgrig is at present practicing his profession in Tipton,
