D. W. Marquart was eleccted to this position in the fall of 1877, and was re-elected in 1879, and again in 1881, filling the office of auditor for six years. D. W. Marquart bas born in the state of Indiana, February 16, 1848, being the son of Frederick B. and Maria A. (Whitaker) Marquart. When he was but four months old his mother died, and his father is now living with him. He came to Adair county in 1866, locating at Fontanelle. He followed school teaching and various other occupations for several years, after which he assisted his father in the post-office. His father was postmaster at Fontanelle for about thirteen years, and resigned about two years ago to come to Greenfield to live with his son. In 1878 D. W. removed to Greenfield. He was married, March 18, 1868, at Fontanelle, to Miss Mary E. Miller, Judge N. E. Taylor officiating. They have two children living---Gertie E. and Vida A.; there is one dead---Webb E. His wife's parents are George and Maria Miller, who reside in Fontanelle, Mr. Miller having a farm of two hundred acres, all improved, one-half mile east of that place. Mr. Marquart, at the age of sixteen years, enlisted in Company H, 19th Indiana volunteer infantry, and served until the close of the war. In politics he is a republican, and he stands high in the councils of his party, as also in the esteem of the citizens of the county in general. He is one of the influential citizens of Greenfield and took a prominent part in the paying off of the county debt. At the fall election of 1877, he was elected to the position of county auditor, and commenced the performance of his duties in January, 1878, and so well has he met the expectations of the citizens of the county that they kept him in the office for six successive years. When he entered upon the performance of his duties, the county was $20,000 in debt, but under his administration affairs have been so well managed that the county is now practically out of debt, only about five hundred dollars remaining against it. For his second and third terms he had no opposition in the convention, and although he was not a candidate for re-election in 1883, yet he received quite a large vote, which may be cited in proof of his popularity among the people of the county. He is a member of the Masonic lodge.
