CHARLES M. HARE.
Among the up to date and energetic young business men of Kenesaw who are doing much to promote the commercial growth
and expansion of the town is C. M. Hare, the proprietor of the Kenesaw Smoke House. He deals in high grade tobacco,
cigars and candy and also has three good pool tables, and the high standard which he maintains is indicated by
the fact that his patrons are among the best people of the town. He was born upon a farm in Armstrong county, Pennsylvania,
on the 18th of August, 1887, and is a son of Daniel and Malinda (McLaughlin) Hare, also natives of the Keystone
state. The father died there in 1908 but the mother is still living and now makes her home in Prosser, Nebraska.
In their family were four sons and four daughters of whom one son and one daughter are deceased.
Charles M. Hare grew to manhood in Adams county, Nebraska, and received his education in the country schools near
Prosser. For a time he engaged in farming west of Prosser, after which he ran a dray line in Iienesaw, but on the
15th of July, 1915, purchased the Iienesaw Smoke House, which he has since successfully conducted. He carries a
fine line of tobacco, cigars and candy, and his place is equipped with three good pool tables. He is accorded a
large and representative patronage and is recognized as one of the leading business men of the town.
Mr. Hare was married in May, 1910, to Miss Louisa Garska, and they have a son, Elmer, whose birth occurred on the
14th of October, 1912. Mr. Hare is a supporter of the democratic party and takes the interest of a good citizen
in public affairs although not an aspirant for office. Fraternally he is identified with the Ancient Order of United
Workmen, and his religious faith is indicated in the fact that he is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church.
He is always willing to cooperate in projects calculated to advance the interests of his community along moral,
commercial and civic lines, and he holds the sincere respect and the high esteem of all who have been associated
with him. Although he is a young man and he has only been engaged in his present business for less than a year,
he has proved his ability and business acumen and his continued success is assured.
