JOSEPH BARINGER, farmer, P. 0. West Independence, was born June 16, 1822, in Hagerstown, Ad., son of Baltus and Mary (Kilhinger) Baringer, natives of Germany, and who came to Maryland in an early day and a few years later moved to Ohio, settling in Stark County in 1823 or 1824, where they remained for eight years, after which they removed to this county and settled in Big Lick Township. Here they entered land in Section 2, near what is now West Independence, and there resided until their death. They were members of the Albright Church and were among the well to do farmers. They were parents of the following named children: Catherine, wife of A. Wyant; Joseph; John; Dolly, wife of D. Wyant; Caroline, wife of A. Wyant; Sarah, wife of J. Hoffman; Lucinda, wife of N. Bish; Lydia, wife of D. Daunsey; and Mary Susanna (deceased wife of T. Swift). Joseph Baringer acquired his early education in the pioneer schools and was reared a farmer, becoming an expert in that occupation. April 17, 1853, he married Sarah, daughter of David Young, and by her he has two children, David and Aaron; the latter married to Allie Smith; they have one child, John. Mr. Baringer now occupies the old home farm, consisting of 222 acres of excellent land under a good state of cultivation. On it there is an orchard, now in fully bearing, which his mother planted. He has made many improvements on the farm, erecting good barns and other farm buildings, and, in 1862, he erected the fine brick residence which he now occupies. He is one of the skillful and successful farmers of Big Lick Township. In politics he is a Republican. The family are connected with the United Brethren Church.
