Biography of Andrew F. Rouze
Marion County, IA Biographies





Andrew F. Rouze is a progressive and enterprising young agriculturist of Marion county, cultivating a farm of fifty acres on section 25, Clay township. His birth occurred in that township on the 18th of June, 1885, his parents being H. N. and Cordelia (Black) Rouze. The father, a retired agriculturist residing in Tracy, is mentioned at greater length on another page of this work.

Andrew F. Rouze enjoyed the advantage of a college education in his youth and remained under the parental roof until he had attained his majority. Subsequently he cultivated a rented tract of land for one year and then purchased a farm in Clay township which he operated for three years. On the expiration of that period he disposed of the property and took up his abode on the farm of his father in law on section 25, Clay township, where he has carried on agricultural pursuits with excellent success to the present time.

On March 25, 1908, Mr. Rouze was united in marriage to Miss Bessie E. Hill, a native of Clay township, this county, born March 13, 1884, and a daughter of L. A. and Alice (Scott) Hill, the former born in Clay township and the latter in Mahaska county, Iowa. They still make their home on a farm in Clay township, and three of their four children also survive. Mr. and Mrs. Rouze have one daughter, Freda Hill, whose natal day was June 14, 1911.

Since age conferred upon him the right of franchise Mr. Rouze has supported the men and measures of the republican party. He has ably served in the capacity of road supervisor for three years and now holds the office of township assessor, making a creditable record in that connection. Fraternally he is identified with the Modern Woodmen of America, belonging to Camp No. 1695, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Methodist Episcopal church, with which his wife is also affiliated. They have always remained residents of this county and are a popular and highly esteemed young couple.
