GILBERT MOITZFIELD.
Among the native sons of Iowa county who are still residing here is Gilbert Moitzfield, a well known business man of Ladora. He conducts an up to date livery barn and is meeting with gratifying success in his business. He was born in this county on the 18th of March, 1868, a son of Wymer and Christina (Deeter) Moitzfield. The father was born in Germany and the mother was a native of Ohio. On emigrating to America Wymer Moitzfield first located in Illinois, whence he removed to Iowa county, Iowa, and settled upon a farm. Both he and his wife passed away in this county. They were the parents of fourteen children, six of whom survive.

Gilbert Moitzfield remained at home until he was forty four years of age and then came to Ladora and entered the livery business. He has a first class establishment and is fully equipped to meet the demands of the traveling public. He also has a feed barn in connection with his livery business. He gives excellent service and as he is thoroughly reliable and his prices are reasonable he receives a good income from his business.

Mr. Moitzfield is a republican but has never desired election to public office as a reward for party fealty. He has spent his entire life in this county and the fact that those who have known him from boyhood are his sincerest friends is proof of a well spent life.
