George H. Boeck

George H. Boeck, one of the enterprising and energetic young agriculturists of Crawford county, is engaged in farming on one hundred and seventy-six acres of land on section 4, Nishnabotny township.

His birth occurred in Davenport, Iowa, on the 10th of April, 1881, his father being Henry Boeck, a sketch of whom appears on another page of this work. He attended the public schools of Davenport in the acquirement of an education, being graduated therefrom in 1895. General agricultural pursuits have claimed his time and energies throughout his entire business career and his attention is now given to the further cultivation and improvement of a farm of one hundred and seventy-six acres on section 4, Nishnabotny township, Crawford county, belonging to his father.

On the 11th of March, 1903, Mr. Boeck was united in marriage to Miss Ella Reimers, a daughter of P. A. and Catherine Reimers, of Davenport. Their union has been blessed with one child, Mildren Evelyn.

Mr. Boeck is a stanch republican in politics and has ably served in the capacity of township trustee for four years. He is a third degree Mason and belongs to the lodge at Manilla, Iowa. As a substantial agriculturist and esteemed citizen of Crawford county he well deserves mention in this volume.
