Charles R Morgan, a well known and representative citizen of Ogden is a lineman of the service of the Marcy Mutual Telephone Company and has also been engaged in auctioneering for the past seven years. His birth occurred in Peoples township, Boone county, Iowa on December 1875, his parents being John W and Margaret (Miller) Morgan. A sketch of the father, who passed away in Ogden on October 20, 1913, appears on another page of this work.
Charles R Morgan acquired his early education in the district schools of his native county and also attended public school in Ogden. He remained under the parental roof until eighteen years of age and then went to Ames, where he attended the Iowa State College of Agriculture until graduated from that institution with the class of 1898. Subsequently he made his way to Jefferson, Green county, this state, and there worked in a creamery for a year and a half. ON the expiration of that period he rented a tract of land and after cultivating the property for two years entered the service of the Bell Telephone Company, with which he continued for five years. He next spent two years as lineman with the Boone County Telephone Company and five years later became connected with the Marcy Mutual Telephone Company, by which he has been retained to the present time. For the past seven years he has also devoted considerable attention to auctioneering and in that connection has won a enviable reputation that has caused his service to be frequently sought.
On January 14, 1903, Mr Morgan was united in marriage to Miss Minnie Linderman, a daughter of John and Phoebe (Cook) Linderman, who were natives of Germany and emigrated to the United States in an early day. They settled first in Harrison county, Iowa and subsequently came to Boone county, Mr Linderman here following farming for a period of fourteen years. He now makes his home with our subject, his wife having passed away in 1903. Mr and Mrs Morgan are the parents of four children as follows: Carroll, eight years of age, Gerald, who is seven years old, ad Earl and Helen, who are six and four years of age respectively. Mr Morgan gives his political allegiance to the democracy and in religious faith is a Methodist. He is also a worthy exemplar of the Masonic fraternity. Both Mr and Mrs Morgan enjoy a wide and favorable acquaintance in the community where they reside, and the hospitality of the best homes is cordially extended to them.
