George Harrison English, Sr.

George Harrison English, Sr., was born at Newark Ohio, January 21, 1836.  In 1854 his father moved from the Ohio farm to Illinois, and Colonel English attended the Illinois College at Jacksonville, from which he was graduated in 1857.

     The young barrister read law with Judge Cyrus Epler, of Jacksonville, and was admitted to the bar in 1860.  He began to practice at Greenfield, Ill., and when the war broke out he became captain of the Thirty-second Illinois Infantry, serving four years and rising to the ranks of major, lieutenant-colonel and colonel.  After the war he located at Leavenworth, Kas., practiced there eight years, then in Wichita four years, and to Kansas City in 1878.
