    Leo Bausman, who is engaged in the retail cigar business and as a real estate broker at Troy, is one of the progressive and enterprising business men of the younger generation whose activities are centered in this thriving and growing city. Mr. Bausman was born at Sidney, Ohio, in 1886, a son of Cornelius and Alice (Sayers) Bausman, and received his education in the public schools of Troy, to which city his parents removed when he was still a small boy. His first connection with business affairs was in the capacity of bookkeeper, and subsequently he became identified with the clerical force of the United States War Department, being stationed at Denver as an accountant in the commissary department. In 1910 he resigned from this position and returned to Troy, where he established himself in business as a retail cigar merchant, at present having a modern, fully stocked and well patronized place of business at No. 118 West Main street. He has also been engaged for some years in operations in real estate, a field in which he has become an excellent judge of land and realty values. His reputation in local business circles is an excellent one and his achievements have been of a nature to make fully evident his commercial ability. Mr. Bausman married Miss Bertha Maier, and to this union there have been born two children: Maier Leo and Walter Cornelius. During the war period Mr. and Mrs. Busman were active in the work of the Red Cross and of all local war and good citizens' movements.
