Jesse J. Vineyard

Jesse J. Vineyard was born in Platte County, Missouri, March 13, 1870.  His early days were spent in Weston, Mo., and in 1883 his parents removed to Kansas City, where the subject of this sketch has ever since resided.

     He attended the public and high schools of Kansas City, and after completing his courses entered Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Va., from which institution he was graduated in 1891.

     Upon his return to Kansas City he taught in Central High School, occupying the chair of mathematics, and in his leisure hours studied law.  He finally gave up teaching, and entered the law offices of Warner, Dean, Gibson & McCloud.

     He was admitted to practice, and became senior member of the firm of Vineyard & Thacher, but in 1902 the firm of Rozzelle, Vineyard & Thacher was formed.
