W. L. Jeffryes.

W. L. Jeffryes, a representative citizen and progressive agriculturist of Adair county, is the owner of an excellent farm of one hundred and twenty acres on section 32, Lee township, and in its operation is meeting with well merited success.  His birth occurred in Jackson township, this county, on the 12th of December, 1876, his parents being Frederick and Ellen (Cooper) Jeffryes, of whom more extended mention is made on another page of this work in connection with the sketch of R. E. Jeffryes, brother of our subject.

In the acquirement of an education W. L. Jeffryes attended the district schools and when a young man of twenty-three years he started out as an agriculturist on his own account, cultivating rented land for about ten years.  In the spring of 1907, having accumulated sufficient capital by dint of untiring industry and careful expenditure, he purchased one hundred and twenty acres of land on section 32, Lee township, and the operation of that place has claimed his time and energies continuously since.  The well tilled fields annually yield bounteous harvests as a reward for the care and labor which be bestows upon them and he is widely recognized as one of the enterprising and successful farmers of his native county.

In politics Mr. Jeffryes is a stanch republican and his religious faith is that of the Methodist Episcopal church, while fraternally he is identified with the Woodmen of the World.  He has always resided in this county and that his life has ever been upright and honorable is indicated in the fact that the associates of his boyhood are numbered among his stanchest friends.
