Harvey A. Ringer Sierra County, New Mexico

Harvey A. Ringer, a cattleman of Hillsboro, was born in St. Francis County, Missouri, and, although deprived of the opportunity of attending school in his youth, he has learned many valuable lessons in the school of experience, continually broadening his knowledge by contact with men, by reading and by observation. He came to New Mexico in 1882 from southeastern Missouri, locating in Fairview, where he became connected with the cattle business. He removed to his home ranch on the S. L. C. ranch, four miles south of Hillsboro, and is today the owner of several valuable ranches. In fact, he is recognized as one of the prominent cattlemen of the Territory, his holdings in this direction being extensive. He raises high-grade cattle and is continually breeding valuable stock. His business in this direction is notable, even in a district where cattle-raising is carried on on a most extensive scale, and his prosperity has resulted entirely from his own well-directed efforts, judicious investment and capable management. He is now a member of the American Cattle-Growers' Association.

Mr. Ringer was married in Kingston, New Mexico, January 31, 1897, to Miss Mabel Bright, and has three daughters. He is a thirty-second degree Mason, holding membership in Kingston Lodge No. 16, A. F. & A. M., in Denver consistory and in Albuquerque temple of the Mystic Shrine.
