William R. Pettijohn, a successful farmer and stockman of Hoyt, Kans., was born at Fincastle, Ohio, October 10, 1863. He is a son of Dr. Johnson W. Pettijohn, a personal sketch of whom precedes this review. He received his education in the public schools and later entered Kansas State Agricultural College where he remained one year, and then attended Campbell University at Holton. He then engaged in farming and stock raising in partnership with his father, on the home place near Hoyt, Kans. They have operated together, and have met with good success, and rank among the progressive farmers and stock raisers of Jackson County. Mr. Pettijohn has been active outside of the field of agricultural endeavor, and in 1902, organized the Hoyt Telephone Company, and is now the sole owner of that enterprise which is a prosperous concern, with over two hundred telephones in operation. The central exchange is located at Hoyt. He was one of the organizers, and a member of the first board of directors of the Hoyt State Bank, and is still a stockholder in that institution. He is also a stockholder in the Southwestern Blau Gas Company of Kansas City, Mo. Mr. Pettijohn was united in marriage, September 13, 1893, to Miss Anna R. Broderick, daughter of Case Broderick, a personal sketch of whom appears in these volumes.[Transcriber's note: The referenced personal sketch does not appear in this particular version of the biographical supplement.] Mrs. Pettijohn was born in Jackson county, Kans., and is a graduate of the Holton High School and Campbell University. Mr. and Mrs. Pettijohn have one child, Ada L., a student in Bethany College, Topeka, Kans. Mr. Pettijohn is a Republican, and takes an active interest in local politics. He is a Scottish Rite Mason.
