Henry T. was born in the town of Freedom, Illinois, May 11, 1858. He received his early training on the farm and in the district school. After reaching his majority he assumed the role of farmer independent of parental assistance, which occupation he still follows and in which he finds contentment and a reasonable degree of prosperity. He resides on and owns the farm upon which he was born, ranks with the representative men of his township, and has the confidence and esteem of all who know him.
Mr. Mosey was married January 17, 1888, to Miss Emma Quam, a sister of John A. Quam, of Sheridan, Illinois. Their union has been blessed in the birth of four children, namely: Earling, Omer, Ruth and Blanche.
Mr. Mosey is a Republican. He cast his first presidential vote for the lamented Garfield, and has supported every candidate of his party since. He has served as a town collector and has just concluded a seven-years service as town assessor, and is serving his fifth year as surveyor for the Independent Farmers' Aid Company for Freedom township.
