NOAH E. PRICE, a representative of one of the early families in Rush county and owner of a well improved farm
eligibly located in Posey township, was born in that township on May 23, 1882, and is the son of Elihu and Mary
(Reddick) Price, who are represented elsewhere in this work. Mr. Price received his educational training in district
school, No. 2, Posey township, and after completing his schooling devoted himself to work on the home farm, where
he remained until his marriage. He then rented the farm from his father and has continued to operate it to the
present time. The farm comprises 230 acres of fine land, on which Mr. Price carries on a diversified system of
farming, raising all the crops common to this locality, and he also gives some attention to live stock, raising
about two carloads of hogs annually. He is thoroughly up to date in his methods and is numbered among the progressive
farmers of Posey township. On January 22, 1904, Mr. Price was married to Laura Abercrombie, who was born in Franklin
county, Indiana, the daughter of Joseph and Mary (Thatcher) Abercrombie, both of whom also were born and reared
in Franklin county. Mr. Abercrombie followed farming during the greater portion of his life, being the owner of
100 acres of land. To him and his wife were born six children, four of whom are living, Louis, Laura, Harry and
Eugene. Mr. and Mrs. Price have had two children, Donald L., born on May 10, 1907, and Mary, who died in infancy.
Mr. Price gives his support to the Democratic party. He is a member of Beech Grove Lodge, No. 399, Independent
Order of Odd Fellows, at Arlington, and also belongs to the encampment. He is public spirited and lends his support
to any cause that has for its ultimate object the betterment of his locality in material, civic and moral lines.
Mrs. Price is a member of the Methodist church at Arlington.
