August Halling belongs to one of the pioneer families of Wayne township Doniphan county, his father, Lambert Halling, having taken up his abode there at an early period in the development of northeastern Kansas.  On the family homestead our subject was born, May 2, 1869, and has here spent his entire life.

He is one of eight children, and in common with his brothers and sisters he attended the district schools of the neighborhood, acquiring there a fair English education that fitted him for the practical duties of life.   From an early age he assisted in the work of the home farm, becoming familiar with the labors of the field and meadow.

Since carrying on business for himself his success has been marked and positive.  He owns a half interest in 320 acres of land in Wayne township and is extensively engaged in stock raising, having a large herd of cattle upon a farm near Leona.

Mr. Halling was married in Doniphan county, May 12, 1896, the lady of his choice being Miss Ellen Gronniger, a daughter of the late Bernard Gronniger, of Union township, Doniphan county, and a representative of one of the pioneer families of the locality. 

In his political affiliations Mr. Halling is a Democrat, but seeks not the honors or emoluments of public office.  He is noted for his intense industry and honest citizenship and in this volume well deserves mention.
