ITS HISTORY AND TRADITION
VOLUME III
1804-1926

C. D. CONOVER
Claud D. Conover, residing on section 18, Battle township, is numbered among
the representative and successful agriculturists of Ida county. His birth
here occurred on the 30th of March, 1884, his parents being Cornelius B. and
Samantha A. (Rogers) Conover, more extended mention of whom is made on another page of this work. From the beginning of his business career he has devoted his attention to agricultural interests with excellent results, and he has become widely recognized as one of the enterprising, progressive and up-to-date farmers of the community which has always been his home.

On the 28th of January, 1907, Mr. Conover was united in marriage to Miss
Tracy Paulsen, a native of Ida county, Iowa, and a daughter of Nicholas and Mary (Francho) Paulsen, both of whom were born in Germany. Mr. and Mrs. Conover have become the parents of eight children, namely: Wendell Holmes, Harold
Joseph, Chester D., Marie E., Elden Burroughs, Samantha Opal, Claud D., Jr., and Forest Nicholas.

Since age conferred upon him the right of franchise Mr. Conover has
supported the men and measures of the republican party at the polls, believing that its principles are most conducive to good government. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Presbyterian church. Both he and his wife have always lived in Ida county and are well known and highly esteemed throughout the community.
