Worth County Recorder John M. Slosson was horn on a farm near Northwood on the 27th day of October 1876. He attended the High school in Northwood and later took a course in Nora Springs Seminary.

In the summer of 1904 he concluded to make a canvas for the republican nomination to the office of county recorder. Though there was a large field of contestants he was chosen by a safe margin and duly elected. In 1906 he was re-elected without opposition, having proved himself a capable and obliging official.

Mr. Slosson is a son of the Hon. J. M. Slosson who so ably represented this district in the Iowa General Assembly. He possesses the unique distinction of being one of two Worth county office holders whose father's before them had also held office by gift of the Worth county voters. He owns a fine farm three miles south of Northwood in the equipment and maintenance of which he takes a keen interest.

On June 1, 1899 he was married to Miss Sophie Savre, daughter of K. K. Savre of this city.
