BERT ALDRICH (1902) is a Middletown township farmer who resides three miles south of Jackson. He was born near Hastings, Michigan, December 12, 1882, the eldest son of Brice and Lydia (Smith) Aldrich. His parents resided in Jackson county several years and are now residents of Colorado, where they have recently taken a government homestead. Bert was three years of age when his parents moved from Michigan to Springfield, Missouri, which was the family home sixteen months. Seven years were spent in Sac county, Iowa, and then the family located in Wright county, Iowa, where Bert grew to manhood. He secured a country school education and worked on his father's farm in Wright county until 1902. Coming to Jackson county in 1902, Bert continued to work for his father in Middletown township until the fall of 1908. Then he married and rented the farm on Section 1 from P. H. Sawyer. The date of the marriage of Mr. Aldrich was August 26, 1908, when he led to the altar Esther A. Johnson, a native of Chicago. One child has been born to this union, a son born June 28, 1909.
