Clarence J. Limbocker, banker and one of the leading business men of Quenemo, Kan., was born in Pottawatomie county, Kansas, March 23, 1864, the son of John M. and Mary J. (Bibnall) Limbocker. His grandfather, Harry S. Limbocker, was born, reared and educated in the State of New York, where he entered the Baptist ministry. In 1860, he came to Kansas and opened up a prairie farm, subsequently he removed to Michigan, where he died in 1885. John Limbocker was also born in New York, where he received the education afforded by the public schools of that state. He was one of those pioneers who came to the territory in 1859, to assist in making it a free state. Locating in Pottawatomie county, Mr. Limbocker at once took part in the stirring life of that period. He was elected treasurer of the county and served in the state militia during the Civil war. For some years he engaged in farming and then moved to Manhattan, Kan., where he became a dealer in real estate, remaining in that business until his death in March, 1910.

The subject of this sketch received the education afforded by the excellent public schools and in 1903 engaged in the banking business in Pomona, but two years later sold his interests there, removed to Quenemo and organized the Quenemo State Bank of which he is cashier. Since its organization the bank has been doing a constantly increasing business, which is most gratifying to the men who fostered the undertaking.

In 1887, Mr. Limbocker married Flora Z., the daughter of David Lemmon, a prominent merchant of Kansas City, Kan. One child has been born to this union, Wayne E., who is fourteen years old (1911) and attends school. Mr. Limbocker is interested in all public questions; especially those pertaining to the city where he makes his home. At one time, he was city assessor and school treasurer. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and of the Eastern Star, and both he and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.
