CORY F. MONTROSS
History of Arizona , page 39

The newspaper fraternity is well represented in northeastern
Arizona in the person of Cory F. Montross, the owner and
publisher of the St. Johns Observer, which he has conducted
for the past eighteen years in an able and creditable manner.
He was born in Beaumont, Pennsylvania on the 23rd day of
December 1874, and is a son of Elijah and Charity (Casebeer)
Montross, the former of whom was for many years engaged in
mercantile affairs. Of the ten children who blessed these
parents, Cory F. is the youngest. He received his early
education in the public schools, after which he attended
Morningside College at Sioux City Iowa and also took a
course in a business college. When twenty one years old,
he learned the printing trade in the office of the Sloan
(Iowa) Star, which paper he subsequently owned for three
years. He then went to Battle Creek, Nebraska, where he
received the appointment as postmaster from President
McKinley, serving one and a half terms after which he became
connected in succession as a printer with the Omaha (Nebraska)
Bee, the Kansas City (Missouri) star and the Pueblo (Colorado)
Chieftain. His first journalistic experience in Arizona was as
the foreman of the Coconino Sun at Flagstaff, which was
published by Colonel Fred S. Breen. In 1911 he came to St.
Johns and bought the Observer from A.F. Banta. He has developed
this paper into one of the best edited and most attractive
papers of this section of the country and has been rewarded
with a splendid measure of success financially.

In 1895 at Pierce, Nebraska, Mr. Montross married Grace Quivey,
who died in 1921 leaving a son, Lynn J. who is a writer and lives
in Woodstock, Vermont.

Mr. Montross has show himself well worthy of the confidence and
support of the people of this community for he has been a loyal
and effective booster of this locality and has stood consistently
for those things which tend to promote the well being of a
community. Cordial and affable in his social relations, he has
won a large circle of warm friend and is regarded as one of St.
Johns best citizens in the truest sense of the term.
