N. D. STANBROUGH, born July 6, 1844, in Hamilton County, Ind.; is the eldest of ten children born to John and Lydia J. (Mills) Stanbrough. His parents were among the pioneers of Hamilton County, and there lived on a farm. John Stanbrough, after his father's death, took charge of the homestead farm, which he improved, and where he lived until his death, December 28, 1878, his wife having died in February, 1875. The subject of this sketch spent his boyhood days upon the farm with his father, receiving a common school education. At the age of eighteen, in August, 1862, he enlisted in Company A, One Hundred and First Regiment Indiana Volunteer Infantry. His regiment was the Second Brigade of the Fourteenth Army Corps.

He was always present at roll call during service, and was with his company whenever it stacked arms, unless while out foraging, or on detached duty. He was honorably discharged July 1, 1865, having proved himself to be a brave and loyal soldier. He then returned to Hamilton County, engaged in the carpenter's trade at journeyman work for eight years, when he began contracting for himself. In February, 1875, he moved with family to this county, locating at Greentown, where he has since lived, actively engaged at his trade.
