DAVID C. WAGGONER is a prominent young attorney of Oskaloosa, and a son of John Waggoner, one of the earlier settlers of the county. He was born in the city where he was reared and educated, Nov. 16, 1856. He received an excellent education, having the advantages afforded by the city High Schools and Penn College. On arriving at the age of manhood he had marked out his course in life, which was in the line of the legal profession. To carry out this determination he began the study of law with John F. Lacey. After very thorough training under that gentleman, he was admitted to the bar in December, 1880, since which time he has been an active, honored member of the Mahaska County bar. For a time he was in partnership with W. H. Needham. This connection, which ran from Jan. 5, 1881, terminated March 30, 1883, since which time Mr. W. has been alone. He is a member of the I. O. O. F., and politically a Republican.
