  • Notes 
    • 1 NAME Loren //


      Luren (later spelled Loren) came to Illinois with his parents when he was two years old in 1879. Since his father was a farmer, they probably came west by horse and wagon. They first settled in or near Thawville, Illinois, then later came to Alton, Illinois. Loren grew up in Illinois and was a well known barber. He was living and barbering in Lockhaven, Illinois when he married Rhanis.

      They moved to St. Louis for a short time where he had a barber shop. They next moved to Granite City, Illinois where he continued his trade as a barber, owning his own shop. For a short time, he was a policeman in Granite City, but not wanting to leave his young wife when on the night beat, he soon quit and returned to his barber shop.

      They moved to Alton, Illinois about 1913 where he continued his trade. Loren liked to take time out in the fall from barbering to work the harvest. He would go to Kansas and Nebraska for the wheat harvest for a week or two. In addition to barbering, Loren worked for a short time as fireman on the old Bluffline Railroad and at the Alton Brick Yard.
