    Guy Parsons. The career of Guy Parsons, the progressive and energetic proprietor of a thriving grocery business at Tippecanoe City, is one in which he has been identified with several lines of endeavor, in each of which he has won-success. Mr. Parsons was born at Fairfield, Greene county, Ohio, and belongs to a family well known in Miami county, a history of which will be found elsewhere in this work in the sketch of Ray Parsons. Guy Parsons was a small child when taken by his parents to Bethel township, Miami county, and there he grew to manhood on, his father's farm, his education being acquired in the public schools, and he graduated from the Bethel High School. When Mr. Parsons entered upon his career it was as an agriculturist near Phoneton, in the southeastern part of Miami county, and while thus engaged became interested in the raising of fancy poultry. Eventually he made a specialty of this line of work and became noted as a poultry fancier, his birds being exhibited at Dayton, Eaton and Springfield, where they won several silver cups and also took the sweepstakes for the best displays. In 1919 Mr. Parsons came to Tippecanoe City and subsequently purchased the grocery business of N. Buckles. This he has since built up to important proportions, and at this time is accounted one of the prosperous merchants of the city. Mr. Parsons is primarily a business man and has found little time for public affairs, but is known as a public-spirited citizen and has given his support to all worthy measures, whether in peace or war times. He possesses the qualifications of courtesy and amiability so necessary to the success of a retail merchant, and since coming to Tippecanoe City has attracted to himself numerous friendships.
