Biography of Dr. G. Y. Salmon



--- G. Y. Salmon, M.D. There is no man in Henry County who is more generally known than Dr. Salmon.
He was born in South Carolina, June 27, 1827. In 1840 his father removed to Morgan County, Missouri, and settled in Versailles.
Young Salmon early commenced the study of medicine with Dr. J. B. Thurston, and attended lectures at the medical department of the university at Louisville, Kentucky. In 1847 he embarked in the active duties of his profession in Clinton, Henry County, Missouri, and until the outbreak of the war had a large and successful practice. He was then engaged in handling livestock for several years, and in 1866, in company with D. C. Stone, he started in the banking business, under the firm name of Salmon & Stone. In 1871, together with H. W. Salmon, his brother, he purchased Mr. Stone's interest, the firm becoming Salmon & Salmon, and no establishment in southwestern Missouri have a more enviable reputation. Mr. S's success in life is due to the care with which he has superintended and directed the most minute details of business, and the close attention he has given to any enterprise with which he has been connected. Since 1847 he has been closely identified with the interests of Clinton.
Dr. Salmon married Miss E. M. Marvin, (daughter of Rev. L. C. and Maria (Moores) Marvin. By this union there are seven children, four daughters and three sons.
