COMMEMORATIVE OF FIFTH ANNIVERSARY

C. S. YANCEY, farmer and stock dealer, was born in Howard county September 8, 1820. He was born on the old Yancey homestead, one mile and a half north-west of Armstrong, and was son of the late LEIGHTON YANCEY. Mr. Yancey has during
his life been engaged in farming, stock raising and stock trading, and has been one of the most extensive and successful dealers in the county. For many years he has bought and sold large herds of cattle and hogs, and has always had a big lot of cattle and hogs fattening on his farm all seasons of the year. C. S. Yancey has in all probability bought and sold more cattle than any man in Howard county. He owns a fine farm of 860 acres just north of town, some of his land adjoining the corporate limits of the town. He owns a magnificent country home one mile north of Armstrong. You can go over all Missouri and you will find but few country homes that equals this one for beauty of surroundings. A cut of Mr. Yancey's home can be seen in this volume. He is a stock-holder in the Farmers bank of Armstrong. He was married August 11th, 1857 to Miss ROZZIE YANCEY. They now have a most interesting family of nine children, 5 boys and 4 girls. Mr. Yancey has ever taken great interest in educational affairs, having sent his children to the public school and to the best colleges in the state. Mr. Yancey has been one of the leading members of
the Cumberland Presbyterian church for many years. C. S. Yancey ranks at the top among Howard county's best citizens.
