The abstract of title business is one of the most important lines of activity in Redwood City, county seat of San Mateo County, and many of Redwood’s most reputable residents are engaged in this work. Standing out among them is Clarence M. Doxsee, manager of the George H. Rice Abstract Company, who has directed this pioneer firm for the last ten years.

Mr. Doxsee came to California from Iowa where he had considerable experience in abstract work and since then he has been associated with the George H. Rice Abstract Company. Under his competent management this firm which was started forty years ago and which was the only business of its kind in Redwood City for twenty-five years, has been able to maintain its high rank and standard. Nearly every large tract of property in the county has been abstracted by this firm.

Mr. Doxsee is a close student of horticulture and is an authority on this subject. Besides the abstract business he has diversified interests throughout the county.

Clarence M. Doxsee was born in Medina County, Ohio on July 30, 1861. He received his primary education in the state of Iowa. Later he entered the Iowa State College, graduating from that institution with the class of ’83. Mr. Doxsee was married to Mary H. Ingham at Algona, Iowa, where he had a flourishing abstract business. Since his residence in Redwood City Mr. Doxsee has been a member of the Congregational Church of that city.
