Otto F. Overby, who, is now engaged in operating his father's farm in Yucatan township, the property being located
on Oak Ridge, in section 16, was born in this township, April 17, 1890, son of Knudt
and Helen Overby. He was the youngest of his parents' thirteen children. In his boyhood he attended the district
school on Oak Ridge, and at the age of fourteen began working for others, which he continued to do until 1914,
when it became necessary for him to return to the home farm, which he has since operated successfully, raising
both stock and Grain. The farm has an area of forty acres, the land being fertile and the part devoted to crops
well cultivated. Otto F. gives his whole time to it except at times when there is little to do, when he works out
for the neighboring farmers. He is a practical agriculturist and has made the farm yield good returns. In politics
he is independent.
