The Waggener House is run under the firm name of Duval & Foor, the junior partner being William Foor, who is the son of Syllvester and Sarah (Trine) Foor. His father, a butcher and grocer of Canal Winchester, O., was born in Ohio; his mother is a Pennsylvania Dutchwoman. all his grandparents are alive and in vigorous health, one couple having been married sixty-two and the other sixty-three years. Our subject well remembers their golden weddings. Mr. Foor was born in Columbus, Ohio, January 18, 1861, but received his education at Canal  Winchester, O., where his father removed shortly after his birth; his education consisted of winter terms of school that he was enabled to attend, while he was employed in the summer season with the Dayton Hedge Fence Co., in whose employ he served for nine consecutive years. During this time he visited nineteen different States, and finally in the winter of 1882 came to Union County; for some time he worked with the Dayton Hedge Fence Co., but when that company was succeeded in Kentucky by the Kentucky Hedge Fence Co., Mr. Foor entered the partnership above mentioned in 1885. He is a young man of fine business talent, and a good acquisition to the population of Morganfield.
