CHARLES LESTER LLOYD, an enterprising farmer of Section 27, Loyal Township, was born on his present farm, April 5, 1875, son of Charles and Sarah (Davis) Lloyd. The father was a native of Mileby, Ohio, and the mother of Pennsylvania, the latter being born May 5, 1849. They were married in Wisconsin, Charles Lloyd locating on 120 acres of land in this township. His early years here were those of a pioneer. On his farm he used an ox team and an old-time "jumper." He built the log house still standing on the farm, worked at times in the woods, and in course of time cleared his farm, on which he resided until his death, in 1895. His wife is still living, being born April 5, 1849.

He and his wife had five children: Charles Lester, the date of whose birth has been already given; Jennie N., born Feb. 7, 1877; Lelia and Leone (twins), born March 16, 1881 and Leonard, born April 11, 1887. Of these children Lelia died March 1910. Charles Lester Lloyd was reared on his parents' farm, which he helped his father to clear, and also worked in the woods at lumbering. In the course of time he succeeded to the possession of the homestead, which has continued to improve and cultivate with satisfactory results and is now is numbered among the prosperous agriculturists of his township. He keeps a good grade of stock, raises various crops successfully, and his buildings and farm equipment are kept in excellent condition. Mr. Lloyd was married, Mar. 17, 1910, to Anna Mary Pollack, who came from Danville, Penn., and whose parents were Jerry and Hannah Babb. Mr. Lloyd has no children of his own, but those of his sister Lelia reside with him, as does also, his mother. Lelia is the widow of Geo. Faust, whose children are James, Roseta and Gilbert.
