ITS HISTORY AND TRADITION

VOLUME III

1804-1926

C. B. CONOVER

For more than fifty years Cornelius B. Conover has watched the progress of civilization in Iowa, bearing his share in the work of developing the resources of this great commonwealth, and a life of rightly directed endeavor has brought him the merited reward of honest labor - success and an honored name. He resides in Holstein and has long been numbered among the foremost agriculturists of this district. He was born October 28, 1853, in New Jersey, and his parents, Peter and Sarah (Burroughs) Conover, were also natives of that state, in which they resided for many years. To their union were born nine children: Elizabeth, Mary and Daniel, all of whom are deceased; Hannah, who is the widow of William Hendrickson, of New Jersey; Mrs. Harriet Bond, of New Jersey, also a widow; Sarah, whose husband was Charles Madena, of New Jersey, now deceased; Cornelius B.; John, who still makes his home in his native state; and Clark, who has passed away.

Cornelius B. Conover was educated in the public schools of the Garden state and in 1873, when a young man of twenty, started for the west. In Benton

county, Iowa, he rented land which he operated for a year, and then went to Cheyenne, Wyoming, following the life of a cowboy for twelve months. On the

expiration of that period he returned to Benton county, resuming his agricultural activities, and a year later transferred the scene of his labors to Linn county, in which he spent three years. He next came to Ida county and in 1879 purchased a quarter section in Battle township, in which he established his home in the following year.

From time to time he has increased his holdings and now owns six hundred and eight acres, converting his place into one of the valuable farms of the township. He has acquired that expert knowledge of his occupation which results from years of practical experience, and his standards of farming are high.

While a resident of Linn county, Iowa, Mr. Conover married Miss Samantha A. Rogers, who passed away December 23, 1918. She was a daughter of Henry and Fanny (Bixler) Rogers, who migrated from Pennsylvania to Ohio and thence to Iowa. They made the journey in a covered wagon and were among the pioneer settlers of Linn county. Mr. and Mrs. Conover were the parents of four children: Clark Henry, who was born in Linn county October 9, 1879, and resides on the old homestead; Clifton E., whose birth occurred October 2, 1881; Claud D., who was born March 30, 1884; and Cornelius B., Jr., born December 8, 1887.

Mr. Conover is a Mason and endeavors to fulfill in his life its principles concerning mutual helpfulness and brotherly kindness. He has many friends in

the county and time has strengthened his hold upon their esteem.
