ROY O'BANION is one of the youngest barbers in the state. He first saw
the light of day in the good old county of "Sweet Owen." He is the son
of Andy O'Banion, and as his name indicates, comes from Irish ancestors.
Roy was reared on a farm near Holbrook, and received a common school
education, most of which he received at the common school at that place,
and a considerable part of it from the tutelage of the pioneer teacher,
H. Z. Allphin. While yet young in years he has built up a splendid
patronage in the good little town of Dry Ridge, and is recognized by all
as a young man of great ability in the trade he has chosen in which to
make a livelihood. His patronage is as good as any barber's in the county,
and is getting better all the time by his courteous treatment of customers.
Roy is a member of the Oswego Tribe of Red Men at Dry ridge, and no
member in the tribe is more popular than he. He lives with his parents
and is much devoted to them. While he is not yet a voter, he is a most
enthusiastic Democrat, never failing to defend the principles of his party
whenever opportunity offers.
