Biography of Ira E. MacIntosh
Howard County, IN Biographies





IRA E. MACINTOSH* is the ninth of twelve children born to Jacob and Nancy (Minor) McIntosh*, natives of Virginia and North Carolina; his parents came to this State in 1809, locating in Union County, where the subject of this sketch was born February 29, 1821; he worked on the farm until he was eighteen years of age, when he began work in a buggy factory near Newport, Ky., in company with his brother. This vocation he followed for over twenty years, during which time he purchased a farm in Union County; he subsequently sold this, and located on a farm in Henry County, where he remained for twenty two years. In the spring of 1873, he came to this county, and located in Taylor Township, where he now resides. Mr. McIntosh, being born of poor parents, received but a limited education; he was compelled to work and help maintain the family, but he has a good practical education, which he has obtained through his own efforts. He was married, October 30, 1845, to Elizabeth A. Elder, a native of Indiana. Nine children bless this union - William M., Missouri E., Alpheus W., James W., Elizabeth A., Charles E., Lilly R., John M. and Ira E. Mr. McIntosh is liberal in politics, and votes for the man rather than for the party. He and wife have been members of the Christian Church for over thirty years, and during twenty eight years of that time Mr. McIntosh has preached the Gospel.


* Both spellings, MacIntosh and McIntosh were used in the book this came from.
