Charles L. Hannon.

Charles L. Hannon

Charles L. Hannon is busily engaged in the operation of an excellent and well improved farm of one hundred and twenty acres which he owns on section 20, Union township.  His birth occurred in Columbiana county, Ohio, on the 1st of July, 1865, his parents being George W. and Mary (Miller) Hannon, both of whom were natives of Ohio and were married in Alliance, that state.  The father came to Iowa, in 1875, locating first in Brooklyn, Poweshiek county, where he worked at the trade of wagon making.  Subsequently he bought a quarter section of land in Union township, Adair county, the cultivation of which claimed his attention until 1881, when he removed to Kansas, and in that state purchased a farm which he operated for several years.  He then settled in Illinois, where he spent the remainder of his life, passing away in 1910.  To him and his wife were born nine children, seven of whom still survive.

Charles L. Hannon acquired his education in the common schools and early became familiar with the duties and labors that fall to the lot of the agriculturist as he assisted his father in the work of the fields.  He has made farming his life work and is now the owner of a valuable property embracing one hundred and twenty acres on section 20, Union township, and also the home place on section 8, comprising one hundred and sixty acres, having in all two hundred and eighty acres.  A number of substantial improvements give evidence of his thrift and enterprise, and his well directed labors have been rewarded with gratifying success.

On the 30th of July, Mr. Hannon was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth King, who was born in Madison county, Iowa, June 17, 1873.  To them have been born four children, namely:  Delbert D., Nellie M., Charles Lloyd and Donald C.

Politically Mr. Hannon is a stanch republican and for ten years has served as assessor of Union township, while for four years he held the office of township clerk, making a most creditable record in both capacities.  He is a stockholder in the Union Telephone Company and enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the progressive and public-spirited citizens of his community.  Fraternally he is identified with the Woodmen of the World, while his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Christian church, to which his wife and children also belong.  He has many friends and never fails to command the esteem and regard of all who come in contact with him.
