John Albert De Moulpied, representing one of the prominent pioneer families of Racine County, was born in Mount Pleasant Township, September 18, 1865, a son of Nicholas De Moulpied, whose sketch is given above. He attended the district schools and afterward spent a year in study in the schools of Racine, subsequent to which time he returned to the farm, whereon he has since remained with the exception of one year spent in South Dakota near Alexandria. Like his father, he has always carried on agricultural pursuits and he has brought his land to a high state of cultivation, his fields annually returning to him golden harvests. He is diligent and energetic in promoting his work and utilizes modern scientific methods of farming in the further care and cultivation of his place.
In 1901 Mr. De Moulpied was united in marriage to Miss Alice Jane Acklam. a daughter of Thomas and Martha Acklam. They have two children, Milton John and Lauren Nichols.
Mr. De Moulpied was reared in the faith of the Republican Party and has never seen occasion to change his political allegiance, for his judgment sanctions its policy. However, at local elections, where no issue is involved, he votes independently. For two terms he has filled the office of town treasurer, was a member of the school board for two years and has been road superintendent. His religious faith is that of the Methodist Episcopal church, to which he loyally adheres. At all times he is ready and willing to co-operate in plans and measures for the general good and at the same time he carefully and successfully manages and cultivates his farm of seventy-five acres, which is now one of the well developed properties of Mount Pleasant Township.
