William C. Diars.

William C. Diars, a worthy native son of Adair county and wide-awake young business man of Fontanelle, has for a number of years been identified with real-estate and insurance interests and in this connection has won well merited success.  His birth occurred on the 19th of January, 1884, his parents being Peter and Margaret (Hills) Diars, both of whom were natives of Germany.  They emigrated to the United States in 1880 and made their way direct to Iowa, locating on a farm in Adair county on which the mother passed away January 15, 1912.  The father survives, however, and is well known and highly esteemed throughout the community.  They became the parents of eleven children, four of whom are yet living. 

William C. Diars received his education in the common schools and spent the period of his minority under the parental roof.  Subsequently he cultivated rented land for three years and on the expiration of that period came to Fontanelle, where he embarked in the real-estate business and he has since built up an extensive and profitable patronage in that line, handling property in Adair and adjoining counties.  He is also active in the insurance field.  He gives his political allegiance to the republican party and enjoys an enviable reputation in both business and social circles of the county in which he has resided from his birth to the present time.
