JOHN S. EDWARDS stands among the younger representative men of Harrison Township. He was one of a family of
ten children born to Sylvester and Mary S. Edwards. Was born in Harrison Township, Howard County, on the farm where
he now resides, and assisted his father in clearing a large farm, and obtained a fair education in the common schools.
His father was a hard working, energetic farmer, and frequently walked upon his knees laying fences, when his back
had become too weak to stand. The subject of this sketch has excelled in the study of music, and has always taken
an active interest in public improvements. He now owns the home farm of 135 acres, two and a half miles south of
Alto. Mr. Edwards was married in Illinois, December 25, 1871, to Miss Alice Thompson, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
G. W. Thompson, of Russiaville, Ind. By this marriage they have four children-Julia A., Vessie, Elden and Vernie
G. Mr. Edwards is an enterprising young man, and he and wife are active members of the Seventh Day Adventist Church.
