AARON ALLSPACH, farmer, P. 0. Vanlue, born February 12, 1818, in Fairfield County, Ohio, is a son of Adam and
Barbara (Wyant) Allspach. His great grandfather came from Germany to Pennsylvania, and his grandfather, Henry Allspach,
moved from Pennsylvania in an early day, and settled in Fairfield County, Ohio. Adam and Barbara Alispach were
the parents of nine children, six of whom are now living: Daniel, Aaron, David, Richard, Lavinia (wife of S. Treese),
and Sarah (wife of Henry Beck), now living in Michigan. The deceased are Samuel, Polly and Elizabeth (wife of J.
Litsenberger). Aaron Alispach was married February 22, 1839, to Sarah, daughter of Joshua Brown (deceased at the
age of ninety five years), and by her he had eleven children, of whom five are deceased and six are living: Nathan
(married to Nancy Furnish), Marion (married to Viola Reynolds), Mary L. (wife of W. E. Ewing), Jacob E. (married
to Emma Bell), Joshua D. (married to Sarah A. Beard), Ella A. (wife of Charles Dame). Those deceased are Adam,
Caleb, Daniel, Benjamin, Barbara E. Mr. Illspach came to this county with his parents in 1829, and stopped over
night on the Henry George farm. His father's family was the first to locate on the west side of what was then a
great swamp, but has since become fine farms. After his marriage Aaron had only 25 cents left to begin life with.
He has been a successful farmer, and now owns the Henry George farm, the same on which he passed his first night
on coming to this county in 1829.
