Ernest Brown Carley, was born on June 13, 1925 in Macedonia, IA and was the eighth child of Arthur L. and Lottie (Dye) Carley. He was raised on a farm southwest of Macedonia, where he enjoyed the farm life. He received his education Macedonia graduating in 1943.
Ernest married Myrna Jean Toland on July 24, 1944 and the couple farmed at Macedonia, Prescott, Corning and Oakland. In 1956 the couple made their home in Griswold when Ernest was offered a blacksmith job. His next job was with Griffin Pipe in Council Bluffs. After retiring from Griffin Pipe, he went back to farming, where he farmed the Kennedy farm at the corner of Highway 59 and 92. The Kennedy family farm was where Myrna grew up after her dad was paralyzed by a falling tree. In 2015 the farm became a Centennial Farm where Ernest, Marilyn and Jeanie went to the Iowa State Fair to be honored.

Ernest was a member of the Coral Mason Masonic Lodge and the Knights of Pythias. He enjoyed sharing his talents of making oyster soup with his brothers.
