JOHN L. BOSLEY, editor and proprietor of the Winchester Sun, is a native of Lincoln County, Ky., was born November 16, 1860, and is a son of John S. and Robert A. (Lytle) Bosley. John S. Bosley, a prosperous and enterprising farmer of Lincoln County, Ky., is a son of Thomas B. Bosley, of Maryland, who was a son of Gideon Bosley; the latter was born in England, came to America, and settled in Maryland at an early date. Thomas B. Bosley came to Kentucky in 1812 and settled in Lincoln County, where John S. now resides; the latter has very successfully followed farming all his life; and is a prominent citizen of that county; he was an officer in the Mexican war, and also took an active part in settling the Missouri and Kansas troubles; he is the father of ten children, who rank among the best citizens of Kentucky, viz: Angie L., Albert S., Josephine L., John L., Montgomery L., Henry
W., Robert L., Joseph A., Mattie C. and Leslie C. Montgomery L. and Henry W., two very promising you men, died in early manhood. Mrs. Robert A. Bosley is a daughter of Robert Lytle, a native of Pennsylvania, who came to Kentucky at an early date and settled in Garrard County. Her mother, Mrs. Rhoda (Walker) Lytle, was a member of the well known Virginian family of that name. John L. Bosley, the fourth child born to John S. and Robert A. Bosley, was reared on the farm, in early life attended the common schools, and in 1882 graduated with high honor at Centre College, Danville, Ky., when he commenced the study of law
with Hill & Alcorn, of Stanford, Ky., but becoming dissatisfied with the legal profession,
he turned his attention to the newspaper business, and in 1885 purchased the Winchester
Sun, of which paper he has since been editor and proprietor. The Sun  had always been a strong Democratic organ until purchased by Mr. Bosley, and since has been equally as strong Republican, having now a circulation of about 1,000 in one of the strongest Democratic counties in the State.
Mr. Bosley is an able writer, and his paper is fast winning a place in every household. He is a
prominent member of the Knights of Pythias and one of Clark County's most promising men.
