      It is a well-authenticated fact that success is the result of legitimateand well-applied energy, unflagging determination and perseverance in acourse of action when once decided upon. She is never known to smile uponthe idler or dreamer and she never courts the loafer, and only the menwho have diligently sought her favor are crowned with her blessings. Intracing the history of the wide-awake implement dealer of Sully, JasperCounty, whose name forms the introduction to this biographical review, itis plainly seen that the prosperity which he enjoys has been won bycommendable qualities and it is also his personal worth that has gainedfor him the high esteem of those who know him.

      William H. Holdsworth was born in Scott County, Iowa, March 23, 1858, theson of William and Hannah (Rolls) Holdsworth, the father born in Irelandand the mother in Pennsylvania. The elder Holdsworth was a stonecontractor by trade. He grew up and was educated in Ireland, from whichcountry he emigrated to America when a young man and he began working inthe quarries, soon becoming a contractor and he got out stone forarsenals, bridges and various important jobs and became very wellestablished in the new world. He was a member of the Episcopal Church.His death occurred in 1903. His family consisted of nine children, namedas follows: John, Samuel, Joseph, Robert, Thomas, Mary, Jane, Charlesand William H. of this sketch, he being the oldest child.

      William H. Holdsworth grew up in Scott County, Iowa, and attended schoolthere, and when but a boy began working on a farm as a hand, then rentedland for himself, but not taking any too kindly to the life of ahusbandman, he left the farm and went to Oskaloosa and ran a bus line forsix years, then, having gotten a good start, he came to Jasper County in1891 and rented land for three or four years, then he went into theimplement business at Lynnville with W. J. Breeden and they built up agood trade. In 1899, Mr. Holdsworth sold out and came to Sully andstarted in an implement store, which, with his son, Charles Oscar, hestill runs. He started on a small scale, but by judicious management andhonest dealings his business rapidly increased until he bought a largebuilding, in connection with which he put in a garage and he handles astandard line of automobiles in connection with a large, general andwell-selected stock of farming implements. His trade embraces a largeterritory and is ever widening. He is one of the leading merchants andbusinessmen in the southeastern part of the County.

      Mr. Holdsworth has taken much interest in public affairs and he has heldall the Township offices and the offices in the town of Sully, alwaysdischarging his duties in a manner that reflected much credit uponhimself and to the entire satisfaction of the people.
