Joseph Guipre, one of the enterprising sons of Andrew Guipre, is recognized as one of the most successful farmers and stockmen in Summit township. In 1881, he purchased the Mrs. Andrew Collins homestead which he has improved, built a handsome residence and commodious basement barn. His land is a producer of large yields of corn. In 1889, he had a total of 6,600 bushels from a field of one hundred acres. He has some fine graded stock among his herd which ranges from forty to fifty head of cattle. The Guipres, like most of the Kansas farmers, have acquired their money raising cattle and hogs.
Mrs. Guipre, a lady of culture and refinement, was Olive, one of the estimable daughters of the late Enos Rushton, who was known to almost every Cloud county citizen. One little son gladdens their home; Enos, the namesake of his grandfather, aged eleven years. Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Guipre are members of the Catholic church and all of their sons have been baptized in that faith. Politically they are Republicans. As citizens, they rank among the best families of the community.
