NIMROD W. BRIGHT, JR., farmer, P. 0. Vanlue, born March 7, 1865, in Big Lick Township, Hancock Comity, Ohio,
is a son of Major and S. S. (Fairman) Bright, natives of Ohio, and a great grandson of Major Bright, who located
or entered 3,000 acres of land in Amanda Township, this county, and was an extensive stock raiser and one of the
oldest pioneers of this county. His son, Nimrod, Sr., the grandfather of our subject, one of the largest land holders
and stock raisers in the county, resides in the village of Vanlue, this county. He is a thorough farmer, and held
at one time as much land as his father, and perhaps more; he and his brother, John C., were pioneer ministers.
The father of our subject is a well to do farmer, occupying lands in Amanda Township, this county, and, like his
ancestors, has given his children land and educated them to become thorough farmers. His children are Elizabeth
(wife of Melvin Ewing), Emma L. (wife of E. Wilcox), an infant (deceased) and Nimrod W., Jr. Our subject is a young
man of promise, and has received an education equal to his day. He is a man of quick perception and good judgment,
and has become an efficient teacher, a profession he follows during the winters.
