M. J. Daeges, the well known and popular cashier of the Farmers Savings Bank at Templeton, is widely recognized as one of the substantial and representative young citizens of the town. His birth occurred in Shelby county, Iowa, on the 5th of May, 1879. his parents being F. J. and Barbara Daeges, natives of Germany. The father, who crossed the Atlantic to the United States in 1867, first located in Chicago and removed to Shelby county, Iowa, in 1869. He has divested his attention to general agricultural pursuits throughout his entire business career and still makes his home on a farm in that county.


M. J. Daeges obtained his education in St. Mary's Institute of Dayton, Ohio, and also pursued a commercial course at Atlantic, Iowa. For three years he followed the profession of school teaching in Shelby county and then spent the winter of 1904 as an employee of the Atlas Grain Company of Chicago, which concern has a branch in Templeton. In the summer of 1906 he embarked in the grain business in association with a Mr. Stevenson and at the end of two years severed the connection to become a partner of Charles Dozler of Templeton, but recently disposed of his interests to his partner in order to devote his entire time to his banking business. In the spring of 1909 he became identified with the Farmers Savings Bank as a stockholder and for the past two years has acted as cashier of the institution, proving a most able and trustworthy official.


In the spring of 1902 Mr. Daeges was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Ocken, a daughter of John Ocken, Sr., who resides on a farm north of Arcadia in Carroll county. Fraternally Mr. Daeges is identified with the Knights of Columbus at Carroll. In his social and business life he is recognized as a man of genuine personal worth, who has won the respect and esteem of all with whom he has come in contact.
