J. H. MUSSELMAN, JR., or Harris, as he is commonly called, is the youngest
son of J. H. Musselman, Sr., and of Elizabeth Lusby Musselman, and was
born in the county of Grant, near the Owen line, Sept. 7, 1869. There
were eight children in the family, six of whom are still living. Harris
received his education in the common schools and followed the pursuit of
farming all his life. His father is one of the largest taxpayers in the
county, and is the largest land owner, having about 3,000 acres of fine
land lying in the Keefer precinct, a great deal of which is yet virgin
forest, and consequently very valuable. Harris, Jr., is a fancier of fine
stock, and has a large number of specimens of fine Southdown among his
flock of sheep, and many beautiful Shorthorns roam with his herds.
He is industrious, sober, and has always been exceedingly well liked
wherever he is known. In politics he is a Democrat and is one of the best
party workers in his precinct. He has never asked for an office, and
probably never will. He was married to Miss Carrie Vanleuven, of
Williamstown, May 4, 1899, and they live very happily and contentedly on
his farm three miles south of Mason.
