Weir, A. S., grain dealer, was born in Scotland February 6, 1852, and when but two years old his parents emigrated to America and located in Chicago, where they lived ten years. They then moved to Iowa and settled in Tama county. He remained a resident of that county until 1885 when he came to Peterson and commenced business. Previous to locating in Peterson, he engaged in farming, was employed as a book-keeper and subsequently engaged in the banking business. In company with Mr. McMillan he built the Peterson and Everly elevators and also purchased a drug store at the former place. He is a wide-awake and thorough business man, shrewd and active and does an immense amount of business in the course of a year. He has held the office of county supervisor for the past three years and was a faithful and most efficient member of the county legislature.
