BENJAMIN L. MUGG is the second of four children born to William and Ellen (Cum wings) Mugg, natives of Kentucky
and Indiana; his parents came to this county in 1845, and took a preemption claim, and subsequently entered the
same and made one of the best farms in the county; his father is today one of the leading farmers of Howard County.
Benjamin L. was born February 4, 1850, in Taylor Township, and helped his father on the farm, receiving a common
school education; his father rewarded him for his labors with forty acres of good land, upon which he is now living.
Mr. Mugg and Mr. A. J. Seagraves are at present engaged very extensively in raising fine Poland China hoges for
breeding purposes, and are receiving orders from many of the Western States daily. They showed at five fairs the
fall of 1882, and received thirty three premiums, eight of which were sweepstakes. Mr. Mugg was married September
3, 1872, to Miss Sophia Ware, a native of Indiana. Four children crowned this union, two of whom lived to receive
names - Iona and Isa. Mr. Mugg was an active member of the Grange movement, and has always voted the Republican
ticket, being one of its stanch advocates.
