Biography of Moses Haas
Tipton County, IN Biographies





MOSES HAAS, dealer in hats, caps, boots and shoes, was born in the Rhine Province of Germany, March 18, 1838. He remained in his native country until 1860, when he emigrated to America, and the next year enlisted in the United States Army, Company B, Sixty third Ohio Volunteers, and was assigned to the Seventeenth Army Corps, First Division. He was with Sherman on his "march to the sea," and participated in the battle of Corinth, and all the other engagements of that memorable campaign. He served until the close of the war, and was discharged at Camp Denison, July 17, 1865. After leaving the army, he went to Illinois and engaged in driving a peddling wagon, which, proving unrenumerative, he then went to Greene County, Ind., and clerked in a store. In 1871, he located in Tipton and embarked in the clothing business, his present vocation. Since coming to Tipton his business has so increased that he now occupies one of the most commodious business rooms in the town (Kemp Block), carries a stock of from $12,000 to $15,000, and does a business annually that approximates $25,000. He is a member of the Masonic fraternity and the Democratic party, and is the owner of a handsome residence, corner of Jefferson and West streets, which he makes his home. Mr. Haas was married in Marion County, Ind., April 11, 1869, to Miss Caroline Rosenthal. They have an interesting family of six children, viz., Daina, Frankie, Morris, Louis, Hattie and Albert.
