He is the eldest of a family of four children. The others are Lois, Reynolds and Chauncey, all at home.
Roy V. Ohmart, after completing a course in the public schools of Salem, was a student for three years at the Willamette University and on leaving college he took charge of his father's farm, which he operated until 1904. At that date he bought a tract of land consisting of one hundred anf forty-four acres, situated seven miles southwest of Salem, and farmed that until 1909. Subsequently he purchased his present general merchandise store, which is located four miles from the statehouse and is known as the Liberty Store. It is situated on a tract of four acres, on which are planted fruit trees, and it has also in connection a house and barn. Mr. Ohmart also owns twenty acres of timberland.
In 1906 he was united in marriage to Miss Gracie Lee, who was a native of Washington and a descendant of Jason Lee. They are the parents of one child, Valleda.
