Lycurgus L. Elledge, a well-known and highly respected citizen of Denison, Kans., is a native of Iowa. He was born in Fremont county, March 18, 1867, and is a son of Frank and Martha (Ramsay) Elledge, the former a native of Illinois and the latter of Missouri. The father was a farmer and stock dealer, and at an early day, removed to Hitchcock county, Nebraska, where he was engaged in farming and stock raising several years. The mother died at Culverson, Neb., in 1881. Lycurgus L. Elledge received his early educational discipline in the public schools, and when a young man engaged in railroad work, in the bridge construction department. He began as laborer, and later became foreman. In 1884, he came to Kansas, and entered the employ of the Kansas Central Railroad Company, and remained in their employ about five years, when he went with the Missouri Pacific Railroad Company, and for about eight years had charge of the bridge construction, building most of the bridges along the K. C. N. W. in Kansas. He remained with that company until January, 1899, when he removed to Denison, Kans., where he has since resided. While following railroad work he had saved enough out of his earnings to buy a farm in Jackson county, and since then has invested extensively in farm mortgages, and is a stock holder in the Holton State Bank of Holton, Kans. He was married April 6, 1898, to Miss Jennie Bradshaw, of Jackson county, and a native of Missouri. She died in November, 1904, at Denison, Kans. She was a daughter of B. H. Bradshaw, a Jackson county pioneer, who became an extensive breeder of thorough-bred cattle and horses. In October, 1905, Mr. Elledge married Miss Lucretia A. Bradshaw, a sister of his first wife. Mr. and Mrs. Elledge are members of the Church of God.
