(Research):HARVEY O. BIRD. The younger farming men of Cass county have wrought worthily and well in carrying forward the splendid work of development that was put in motion by their fathers and grandsires in years gone by, and it will hardly be denied that the greater part of the real prosperity of the county and the wealth of the communities have resulted from the application and energy of these sturdy farmers and honest and admirable citizens. Among the more prosperous and comfortably situated agriculturists of Cass county, of whom there are indeed many, H. 0. Bird of Walton is one who is deserving of especial mention in this historical and biographical work dealing with the county of Cass in Indiana. He was born in Deer Creek township, this county, on February 27, 1887, and is the son of J. W. and Essie (Rhinehart) Bird, of whom the former is now deceased. J. W. Bird was born in Ohio, where he devoted himself to farming and was very prominent in the community that represented his home for years before he identified himself with the fortunes of Cass county. He was the father of seven living children, named as follows: Francis A. harriet, who married a Mr. Walter Barnes; Benjamin F.; Harvey 0., of this review; Charles R.; Eva J., and Ruby.

Harvey 0. Bird in boyhood attended the Crockett school in his community, and during his vacation seasons applied himself diligently to the work of the home farm, as was required of him. He was nineteen years of age when on February 22. 1906, he married Ercie Banks, the daughter of Harry and Lorinda (Rush) Banks, and one son. Clark Bird, has been born to them.

Mr. and Mrs. Bird are members of the Christian church and have an active part in the work of the church and its various departments. Politically Mr. Bird is identified with the Republican party, and takes the interest of a good citizen in all affairs of a political and civic nature in his community, where he has a prominent place of which lie is well deserving.
