biography from Portrait & Biographical Album of Mahaska Co., Iowa, 1887
THOMAS T. HOFFMIRE, an esteemed citizen of New Sharon, is a son of Luther and Ann J. (Kirk) Hoffmire, a biography of whom appears elsewhere in this work. He was born in Adams Township, this county, Feb. 14, 1859. He received his education in the public schools of New Sharon, and afterward taught school in this county four years. In July, 1881, he went to Creston, Iowa, and took charge of a branch office for the Singer Manufacturing Company, of Chicago, handling their business in a very satifactory manner, and with signal ability, for a period of over three years, and then returned to New Sharon to assist his parents, his father being in poor health. He immediately commenced a coarse of law reading, which he has continued since September, 1884, and in the meantime has carried on a real-estate insurance and collection agency. Mr. Hoffmire is a member of the Masonic fraternity. As was his father before him, he is a man of strict integrity, of fine business qualifications, building up for himself an excellent business gaining many friends and making no enemies.
