T[homas]. C. HEPPERLEY (sic, should be HEPPERLY), farmer and stock raiser, living on section 30, Lincoln Township, was born in the State of Illinois, April 12, 1840, a son of John and Permelia HEPPERLEY, who were natives of Pennsylvania and Ohio respectively. Our subject was reared to the occupation of a farmer, which he has followed through life. At the age of twenty-three years he began farming on his own account. He was united in marriage [August 16, 1863, Stark County, Illinois] to Miss Selina A. KING, a daughter of W. and Eliza (BROWN) KING, who were natives of Ohio. They have six children - Jacob F., born May 24, 2864; L. C., born January 6, 1866; John W., born July 2, 1870; Alice E., born August 24, 1873; Mark W., born July 24, 1875; and Grace P., born June 19, 1877.

Mr. HEPPERLEY came to Iowa in the spring of 1869, remaining but a short time, when he went to Kansas. After spending three years in that State he returned to Illinois, where he resided two years, coming thence to Ringgold County, Iowa, since which he has lived on his present farm. He is one of the prosperous farmers of Lincoln Township, where he has 200 acres of choice land all under cultivation. He has a fine orchard on his land which contains 100 apple trees, besides an abundance of other kinds of fruit. Since coming to this county Mr. HEPPERLEY has served as road supervisor in Lincoln Township. He and his family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.

NOTE: John HEPPERLY was born in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania on February 15, 1815, and died November 26, 1887, Lincoln, Illinois. Permelia HEPPERLY died at the age of 32 years, 1 month and 13 days on August 3, 1853. John and Permelia were interred at Fondulac (also known as Camlin) Cemetery, Tazewell, Illinois.
