Bert C. Moore.

Bert C. Moore is an enterprising young agriculturist of Eureka township who owns and operates a well improved farm comprising one hundred and sixty acres on sections 15 and 16.  His birth occurred in Poweshiek county, Iowa, on the 8th of October, 1880, his parents being William and Emma (McVey) Moore, who are likewise natives of that county.  The father operated a farm in Poweshiek county for several years and subsequently carried on agricultural pursuits in Audubon county, this state, for about fifteen years.  On the expiration of that period he disposed of his property there and came to Adair county, having here since resided and being now sixty-two years of age.

Bert C. Moore was reared and educated in Audubon county and remained under the parental roof until twenty-four years of age.  He then started out as an agriculturist on his own account and cultivated rented land for four years, on the expiration of which period he purchased a tract of one hundred and sixty acres on sections 15 and 16, Eureka township, this county, which he has splendidly improved and has operated continuously to the present time.  He has made a close study of agriculture, possesses good business ability and is methodical, systematic and progressive, so that he is numbered among the substantial and successful young farmers of Adair county.

At the age of twenty-four years Mr. Moore was united in marriage to Miss Mabel Aldrich, a daughter of Charles and Agnes (Carney) Adlrich, who were natives of New York and Canada, respectively.  When three years of age the father was taken by his parents to Bureau county, Illinois, where he remained until February, 1883, when he came to Adair county, Iowa.  Here he cultivated rented land for a year and then purchased a quarter section in Summit township, which he has operated continuously and successfully since.  He is now sixty-one years of age.  His wife passed away on the 22d of February, 1915, after two weeks' illness.  To Mr. and Mrs. Moore have been born four children, namely:  Carl, Etro, Leora and Martha.

Mr. Moore gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is liberal in his religious views, recognizing the common purpose of all and the good which all may do.  The high principles of manhood which have ever governed his dealings with his fellowmen have won for him the unqualified respect, confidence and goodwill of all with whom he has come in contact.
