two years in Ohio he settled in 1850 on section 27 in Bedford. The present farm gradually accumulated by sturdy
tilling of the soil, and now covers an area of nearly two hundred and fifty acres. He is the son of John anti Ann

to Ann, daughter of John and Ann (Brooks) Ash. Of a family of six boys and five girls, one of each has died. While
he always votes the Republican ticket, yet he never can be persuaded to hold any office in the township.
