JACOB M. BACK
Jacob M. Back, a son of the worthy old Texan pioneer, spent the period of his boyhood and youth on the old home farm, receiving his educational training at Mansfield, and after entering upon his business career he became extensively engaged in the live stock business in connection with his farming interests. He buys and ships all kinds of live stock, but makes a specialty of hogs, of which he is the most extensive dealer in Tarrant county. His farm is located five miles east of Mansfield, and consists of one hundred and seventy acres of rich and productive land. Early in the year 1902 Mr. Back embarked in the mercantile business in Mansfield, establishing the firm of Back & McLean, hardware and implement dealers, and since 1894 has maintained his residence in the city and devotes his attention to his large and constantly increasing business, although he still retains his farming and stock-raising interests. He is a very successful business man, and has prospected in his various financial undertakings.
Mr. Back married Miss Alida Munsey, a native daughter of Illinois, but reared in Texas, and they have three children Claude V., Col A. and Nannie Lu. In his fraternal relations Mr. Back is past master of Mansfield Blue Lodge, A. F. & A. M., No. 331, and a Royal Arch Mason.
