WARREN DOYLE

Warren Doyle, a farmer and stock-raiser of Spring Creek township, is a self-made man, the analyzation of his life record showing that he has been dependent upon his own resources for all that he possesses; and, that earnest, persistent effort has been the dominant element in his career. He was born in Hardin township, July 22, 1872, and has spent his entire life in Pike county. His parents were also natives of this county; and the father is still living, but the mother passed away on the 6th of June, 1905.

Mr. Doyle, of this review, is indebted to the public-school system of the county for the educational privileges which he enjoyed in his youth. His attendance at school was alternated by his labors on the home farm through the summer months, while his studies were pursued in the winter seasons. He has worked earnestly and persistently, early developing self-reliance and force of character that have enabled him to surmount all the difficulties and obstacles in his path. He is now the owner of two hundred acres of land, which he is carefully cultivating in order to bring it up to the highest possible state of productiveness, his principal crops being wheat and corn. Cattle and horses and hogs are also raised; and he can accommodate during the winter thirty-five head of cattle and seven horses, having large barns and sheds upon his place.

On the 29th of October, 1897, Mr. Doyle was united in marriage to Miss Elsie Smith, a daughter of George and Mary (Phegley) Smith. She was born in this county, November 9, 1874, and by her marriage has become the mother of four children, namely: Mabel, Eula, Virgil and Euna Doyle.

In his political views Mr. Doyle has always been a democrat, but without aspiration for office, having found his time fully occupied with the management of his business affairs, and his close application and energy constitute the basic elements in his prosperity. He leads an active and busy life; and the sure rewards of labor are his.
