George C. Mohr

The efforts of George C. Mohr are being directed toward the cultivation of a farm of ninety acres in Iowa township, where he is engaged in general farming and stock-raising.

He was born in Jackson county, Iowa, on the 21st of September, 1877, and is the youngest son of Frederick C. and Mary (Kruse) Mohr, natives of Schleswig-Holstein, Germany. The parents emigrated to this country in the early '70s, locating in this state. The mother passed away in 1903 and the father is now living retired with the subject of this sketch.

The education of George C. Mohr was acquired in the district schools of his native county, and after laying aside his textbooks he engaged with his father in the cultivation of the homestead until the latter retired, at which time he located upon the place where he continues to live. He has a very pleasant homestead, upon which he has made all of the improvements, and is being rewarded with very satisfactory returns for his efforts.

Mr. Mohr was married in 1903 to Miss Alfrida Molter, and unto them has been born one child, Nellie. They hold membership in the Lutheran church and politically Mr. Mohr affiliates with the democratic party, but not being an aspirant for office or public honors he does not actively participate in township affairs, devoting his entire attention to his private interests.
