Tipton County, IN Biographies





J. A. TICHENOR was born in Tipton County, Ind., March 20, 1840. He is a son of James Tichenor, and passed his earlier years on his father's farm, with very poor opportunities for acquiring an education. On attaining his twenty third year, he engaged in farming for himself, which he followed until 1876, when he removed to Tipton and engaged in the hotel and livery business. Not being satisfied with it, he soon abandoned the hotel, but still continues the livery business. In conjunction with it, he also sells buggies, representing the firms of Sechler & Co., and D. W. Miller & Co., both of Cincinnati. Besides the business last named, he also farms and carries on a flourishing harness trade, in which he carries a $2,000 stock of goods. He was married in Delaware County, Ind., September 29, 1862, to Miss Mary Dale. The fruits of their marriage consist of six children, three boys and three girls, namely: Marion, Symetha J., Leroy, Luella Bell, Cora and Arvy Orial. Mr. Tichenor is politically a Democrat, and is a member of the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and of the Patrons of Husbandry.
