    Guy L. Bandy. Among the men identified with the automobile industry at Troy, one who is making a definite success of his activities is Guy L. Bandy, proprietor of the Auto Inn. He is a native of the Prairie State, born at Dudley, Edgar county, September 16, 1878, a son of Orlando and Mary E. (Ousley) Bandy. Orlando Bandy was a merchant at Dudley, where he was known as a man of sound integrity and good citizenship. There were two children in the family: Pearl, the wife of Guy Payne, of Brocton, Ill.; and Guy L. The educational advantages of Guy L. Bandy were acquired in the public schools of Brocton, Ill., after leaving which he entered upon his business experience in his father's general store. He was associated with the elder man for ten years, but in 1909 broke home ties and came to Troy, where he subsequently engaged in the garage business as the proprietor of the Auto Inn. Here he has built up a splendid patronage, selling and storing cars, maintaining an efficient repair department and service station and handling a complete line of up-to-date accessories of standard makes. While a resident of Illinois, Mr. Bandy joined the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and still maintains membership in this order in which he has numerous friends. He was a liberal contributor during the war to all war-time measures, and in normal times has evidenced all the traits of good citizenship. Mr. Bandy married Tessie J., daughter of S. B. Cook, of Brocton, Ill., and they have one son: Gerald, born in 1912.
