George Mackey a brother of John Mackey, follows farming on section 3, Harrison township, where he owns a well cultivated and highly improved place of 151 acres. He was born in this county July 19, 1873, and received a good common school education. On January 3, 1900, he married Miss Jennie Kennedy, a daughter of William James and Ellen (Manion) Kennedy, now residing at Grand Junction, Iowa. The children born of this union are Glen Roosevelt and Samuel Kerr, both attending school.
Since 1907 Mr Mackey has resided upon his present place and to its cultivation and improvement has devoted his undivided attention. In politics he is a progressive republican, and he has most ably filled the office of school director for two terms. He has never however, given much attention to political affairs, preferring to devote his entire time to the operation of his farm, and its neat and thrifty appearance indicates to the passerby that he thoroughly underrates the occupation which he follows.
