Hancock County, OH Biographies

JOHN MISAMORE, farmer, P. 0. Mount Blanchard, born December 25, 1813, in Pickaway County, Ohio, is a son of Michael and Mary (Hager) Misamore, the former a native of Virginia, and the latter of Pennsylvania. Michael Misamore came to Ohio soon after it was organized as a State, and settled in what is now Pickaway County. In order to get land at that time he was obliged to take 640 acres. He came to Hancock County in 1831 and settled in that part of Jackson Township which was afterward struck off into Amanda Township. He entered 160 acres of land, in two tracts, erected his cabin in the forest, and made his home on what is now Section 13, Amanda Township. He had at that time eleven children, of whom there are now living Henry, Emanuel, Mollie (wife of Chester Cook), Matilda (wife of Elijah Gorsage) and John. The subject of this sketch has been twice married; first, in 1835, to Rachael Hammond, who bore him five children, of whom three survive: Henry, Amanda (wife of J. Siddall) and Mary Jane (wife of Harrison Hoy). After the death of his first wife Mr. Misamore married Mary A. Sheldon, and to this union were born James, Milton, Michael, Ellen, Eli J., Presly H., Owen G., Emma, Delma and Mollie, all now living, and three others deceased, Mr. Misamore being the father of seventeen children in all. Mr. Misamore has been a successful farmer, and says he worked to accumulate property in proporaton to the increase of his family. His father built the first grist mill in Amanda Township, and our subject afterwardrebuilt and operated it for twenty years.
