CHARLES C. LARSEN.
Adams county has been signally favored in the class of men who have occupied her public offices, for on the whole
they have been men of public spirit, devoted to the welfare and upbuilding of the district and faithful, businesslike,
prompt and reliable in the discharge of official duties. Such has been the course of Charles C. Larsen, now filling
the office of county recorder of deeds. He was born in Holstein, Adams county, February 24, 1883, and is a son
of Paul C. and Caroline Larsen, who were farming people. The father came to Nebraska in the year 1878 and purchased
railroad land, after which he bent his energies to the development of a farm, converting the wild land into productive
fields. He continued to engage actively in the work of the farm until 1904, when he put aside business cares. His
wife died in 1903, but he and his daughter still reside upon the farm, although he has retired from business.
Charles C. Larsen entered the public schools at the usual age and after mastering the lessons therein taught spent
two terms at the Fremont Normal College. He afterward engaged in teaching, which profession he followed for nine
years in Adams county, proving a capable educator with ability to impart clearly and readily to others the knowledge
that he had acquired. He was called to official position in 1912, when he became deputy in the office of the district
clerk, thus serving until the 7th of January, 1914, when he entered upon the position of county recorder of deeds,
to which he had previously been elected. His political allegiance has always been given to the democratic party
and he does everything in his power to legitimately further its success.
On the 30th of August, 1911, Mr. Larsen was united in marriage to Miss Ellen M. Rothwell, a daughter of James H.
Rothwell. In religious faith the family are Protestants. Fraternally Mr. Larsen is connected with the Modern Woodmen,
with the Royal Highlanders and with the Odd Fellows. He turns for recreation to fishing and outdoor life, which
he greatly enjoys. He is never remiss in the duties of citizenship and his devotion to the welfare of his community
is marked. At all times he manifests a progressive spirit in relation to the public good and his substantial personal
traits also endear him to those with whom he is brought in contact.
