Biography of W. T. Hollingsworth
Howard County, IN Biographies





W. T. HOLLINGSWORTH was born in Union County, Ohio, May 31, 1842, and in 1846 came to this county with his parents, William N. and Susannah Hollingsworth, who were strict members of the Society of Friends. He was reared during the antilavery agitation, and became imbued with the principles of the agitators, and, considering the limited advantages, obtained a very fair education. When quite young, he learned the milling business, which he has ever since successfully followed. During the war, he operated what is known as the old Stratton Mill, and afterward purchased an interest in the Russiaville Mills, which were run under the firm name of Seward & Hollingsworth, the senior partner being Niel Seward. November 30, 1862, he married Rebecca Sparling, of Indianapolis. For the past twelve years he has been a usefel member of the I. O. O. F., and at present resides with his family at West Middleton, and is operating the Merchant Flouring Mills at that place.
