Young, I. D., lawyer and Congressman, was born on a farm near Pleasantville, Marion county, Iowa. At the age of six years he went with his parents to Adams county in the same state, where he attended the common and high schools until the age of fifteen, when he began teaching. He remained in that profession for ten years, married in Iowa, and in 1874 removed with his wife to Mitchell county, Kan., where he entered a homestead and farmed for about twelve years, during which time he studied law and was admitted to the bar. In 1888 he removed to Beloit and engaged in the practice of law. He was elected county superintendent of public instruction in 1876, and reëlected two years later. He has been elected twice to the state senate on the Republican ticket, the last time in 1904. In 1910 he was elected to Congress as representative of the Sixth district, defeating Frank S. Rockefeller, the Democratic candidate, by a vote of 21,220 to 18,985.
