JOHN THOMAS VERINK

John T. Verink, of Muscatine county, who has a well established reputation as a farmer and stockman, was born in this county, December 8, 1876. He is a son of William and Fannie (Simpson) Verink, the former of whom was born in Holland and the latter in the United States. The father came to America with his parents in 1853 and lived in Muscatine county until his death, which occurred March 12, 1907. The mother was called away in March, 1895. There were two Children in the family: our subject and Susan E., now the wife of M.L. Shellabarger, of Letts, Louisa county, Iowa.

John T. Verink was reared upon the home farm and educated in the district school. He continued with his parents until he was twenty-one years of age and then began upon his own account as a shipper of cattle and hogs to the markets of St. Louis and Chicago. In 1901 he purchased a farm of one hundred and twenty acres in Seventy-six township and has since acquired more land so that at the present time he is the owner of two hundres and sixty acres. He makes a specialty of raising and feeding stock and, having good judment and thorough knowledge of the grades of live stock most in demand in the market, he has been very successful in this line. His farm is in a high state of cultivation and everything about it shows that it is under the care of a practical man.

On the 4th of March, 1902, Mr. Verink was united in marriage to miss Florence Hunter, a native of Eldon, Iowa, and a daughter of Samuel and Mary Hunter, who were also born in this state. Mr Hunter is now deceased but his wife is still living and makes her home in Louisa county, Iowa. There were four childred in their family. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Verink has been brightened by the arrival of one daughter, Zelda S.

Mr. Verink is a member of the Masonic lodge at Letts, and he is a staunch beliver in the fraternal principles of the order. Politically he gives his allegiance to the democratic party. He is greatly esteemed by the people of his township and served as assessor two terms, performing the duties of the office in such a way as to receive the hearty commendation of the tax-payers.
