GEORGE W. LIBLIN.
Among Jefferson county's native sons who are meeting with success in the utilization of the excellent opportunities
here offered along agricultural lines is George W. Liblin, whose birth occurred in Cedar township on the 17th of
March, 1863. He is the eldest child in the family of seven children born to George and Mary
Ann (Long) Liblin, natives of France and Tennessee, of whom mention is made above. The family has long been
established in this section and the grandparents on both the paternal and maternal side here passed away and are
buried in Paterson cemetery of Cedar township.
On the old homestead farm George W. Liblin spent the period of his boyhood youth, and amid the busy activities
of rural life he learned many lessons concerning the value of industry and perseverance and formed habits of clean
and upright living, elements which later formed the salient characteristics of his career. He remained with his
parents until twenty three years of age, when he left home and took up agricultural pursuits on his own account,
his thorough training under the direction of his father well equipping him for the conduct of an independent venture.
Purchasing eighty five acres on section 12, Center township, he took up his abode thereon and it has since remained
his home, living alone on the place until his marriage. He holds to modern methods, is energetic and persevering
in the conduct of his affairs and the well improved condition of his farm indicates that he is in close touch with
the spirit of progress which is so manifest in agricultural circles today.
Mr. Liblin was married on November 29, 1888, to Miss Rosa Bean, who was born in Washington county, Iowa, January
29, 1866, a daughter of Joseph and Esther Bean, the former now deceased and the latter residing with Mrs. Liblin.
To Mr. and Mrs. Liblin, on November 3, 1899, one child was born, George William, who, however, passed away, July,
13, 1902, at the age of two years and eight months. The parents are members of the Christian church while in politics
Mr. Liblin gives his support to the democracy, in the principles of which party he sincerely believes. He has never
sought public office as the reward for party fealty, however, but has conscientiously endeavored to perform all
those duties of private life which should be regarded as privileges as well as obligations by all loyal citizens.
He is widely known in the county within whose borders his entire life has been spent, and that many of his best
friends now are those who were his boyhood's companions is indicative of the fact that he possesses in large degree
those qualities which win and retain warm regard and high esteem.
