C. L. MOSIER.
Among the well known general farmers of Juniata township is C. L. Mosier, who is the owner of one hundred and sixty acres of land on which he has lived for fifteen years, and the creditable appearance of the place is due to his industry and careful management. He was born September 25, 1874, in Adamsville, Cass county, Michigan, a son of Isaac and Susan (Conley) Mosier, who were natives of Pennsylvania and of Ohio respectively. They were married, however, in Michigan and in that state the father passed away. The paternal grandfather came from Lorraine, France, while the mother's people were of German lineage. Isaac Mosier devoted his attention to general agricultural pursuits and his death occurred about six years ago. In the family were five sons, as follows: Theo, who is a resident of Adamsville, Michigan; Charles A., living in Miami, Florida; C. L., of this review; Leland, who makes his home in Berkeley, California; and Willard, of Adamsville, Michigan.

During his youthful days C. L. Mosier, residing upon the home farm, divided his time between the work of the fields and the acquirement of a common school education. When fifteen years of age he made his way to Nebraska and was employed for some time as a farm hand, but he was ambitious and energetic, practiced close economy as well as industry and in the course of time had earned enough to enable him to purchase property. He became owner of his present place fifteen years ago and now has one hundred and sixty acres of good land which he devotes to general farming. His methods are practical and progressive and his desire to make a good home for his family is manifest in the improvements which he has put upon his place. He is also connected with the Farmers Grain Company of Juniata.

In 1900 Mr. Mosier was united in marriage to Miss Ethel M. Savery, who is the eldest daughter of Henry R. and Eliza (Van Houten) Savery. Her father is of English lineage and is a descendant of Elder William Brewster and Richard Warren, who came over in the Mayflower, and also of Zachariah Whiteman, of Revolutionary fame. The mother is of Dutch lineage and the Van Houten family was established in Dutchess county, New York, in the early days of this country. Mr. and Mrs. Savery are still living in the old home at Juniata. Mr. and Mrs. Mosier have two sons and two daughters: Ethel M. and Rex T., of Juniata; and George C. and Donna B., of Los Angeles, California.

In his political views Mr. Mosier is independent, voting according to the dictates of his judgment. He belongs to the Modern Woodmen lodge at Juniata and his influence is always cast on the side of improvement and advancement. He is ever willing to aid in movements for the general good and at the same time he has led a busy and useful life in the conduct of his farming interests.
