Charles Moore, cashier of the Parnell Savings Bank, has, since starting out in the business world, been connected
with banking and is today capable, resourceful and progressive. He was born in Parnell, Iowa county, Iowa, his
parents being William Wallace and Esther M. (Carter) Moore. He attended the public schools and afterward the North
English high school, and when his textbooks were put aside he entered upon active connection with the banking business,
becoming assistant cashier of the Parnell Savings Bank on the 7th of November, 1904. He occupied that position
continuously for about eight and a half years and on the 1st of March, 1913, at the death of F. V. Mullin, he succeeded
to the cashiership, in which position he still continues, giving his time and attention to the duties of the office
and proving a most popular official. He has made a close study of every phase of the banking business and the success
of the institution with which he is connected is attributable in considerable measure to his efforts.
In Fillmore township, Iowa county, on the 1st of January, 1905, Mr. Moore was united in marriage to Miss Maude
T. Claypool, a daughter of John T. Claypool. He takes little interest in politics aside from exercising his right
of franchise, for he is too busy to become an active political worker, yet he is not neglectful of the duties of
citizenship and has been a cooperant factor in various projects for the public good. The community knows him as
a progressive, wide awake business man. He has in his possession an old handmade pitchfork, which he exhibited
at the St. Louis, Chicago and Buffalo expositions and it is conceded to be the oldest pitchfork exhibited in the
United States, dating back to the time of William Penn.
