Alameda County, CA Biographies





John Hindrix, proprietor of Jack's Service Station, at First and A streets. Hayward, has attained success because he has worked for it, and the results of his tireless and determined efforts are now apparent in the splendid plant which he owns and the large patronage which he enjoys. He was born in Clinton, Iowa, June 30, 1886, and is a son of John and Mary (Peterson) Hindrix. His father, who is now deceased, was a farmer in Iowa, and his widow is still living in that state.

John Hindrix, of this review, received a good public school education, then learned the art of telegraphy and was for ten years in the employ of the Chicago, Milwaukee & St. Paul Railroad, serving as telegraph operator at Minneapolis, St. Paul, Mitchell, South Dakota, and other places. Because of a railroad strike, he quite that line of work and returned home, where he remained until 1914, when he went to San Jose, California, and was for two years with the Alameda Sugar Company. He then came to Hayward and leased his present service station, on which he has made a large number of valuable and desirable improvements, so that his plant is now modern in every respect. He handles Associated gas and various grades of oil, and gives prompt and efficient service, through which he has won the respect and good will of all who have patronized him.

On September 21, 1910, in Iowa, Mr. Hindrix was united in marriage to Miss Rose B. Petty, who was born in Pillsville, Illinois, and is a daughter of John and Susan E. (Watson) Petty. Mr. Hindrix is a stanch republican in his political views and is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Woodmen of the World. He is a careful, painstaking and efficient business man and well deserves the prosperity which is attending his efforts. He has shown a deep interest in the welfare of his community and his record has gained for him an, enviable standing among his acquaintances.
