Biography of J. W. Golding
Howard County, IN Biographies





J. W. GOLDING, of the firm of Howell & Golding, was born in Howard County December 31, 1851, and is the son of David and Susana (Howell) Golding, both natives of Indiana; his parents came to this county while they were young, and were here married, February 12, 1850. They were numbered among the pioneers of this county, and here lived a farmer's life, except four years, which were spent in Wisconsin. David Golding entered forty acres of land, which he improved; he also had an interest in a saw mill for five years, and later in life gave his entire attention to farming; he was a Republican in principle, and was a liberal supporter of all benevolent purposes. He was a member of the Wesleyan Methodist Church, and was a worthy citizen and representative man. He died December 19, 1877, and his wife yet survives and now lives with the subject of this sketch. J. W. Golding received a good education, and at the age of twenty began teaching; he taught five terms, and during the intervals worked at the carpenter's trade. After the death of his father, he engaged in the manufacture of tile in company with James Groves. This partnership existed until August, 1880, when M. G. Howell became successor to J. Groves, and the business has been increased so that it stands second in the list of tile manufacturers of Howard County. Mr. Golding is an active worker in the Republican ranks, and is a member of the Central Committee; he is also a member of the United Brethren Church.
