N. B. McCLISH, farmer and stock raiser, P. 0. Gilboa Putnam County, was born in Franklin County, Ohio, August 16, 1821, son of James and Patience (Bishop) Mulish. the latter born in New Jersey, of Iriah descent. His father, a native of Maryland, a school teacher by occupation, and a soldier in the war of 1812. came to this county October 3, 1836, and settled within a few rods of where the McClish bridge now stands, and died three days after his arrival. His family consisted of eleven children, ten of whom grew to maturity, seven coming to this county. Only three of the family are now living: N. B., a sister residing in Illinois, and a brother who has resided in California since 1848, a large man, weighing 400 pounds. Our subject has made agriculture his occupation, and now resides on the farm where his father settled, in 1836, and to which our subject has since added until he now owns 411 acres, the farm being one of the most valuable in this county. Mr. Mulish has been twice married; first, in 1848, to a daughter of Henry Moffit; she died in 1855, leaving three children: Ivy. Herman and Mary. In 1856 our subject was again married; this time to a daughter of Owen Street, a pioneer farmer of Union Township, this county. The children of this union are Patience, Annie (wife of Samuel Cartwright), Harriet E. (wife of Samuel Burthart), Dean. P. B., Anna G. and May. The mother of these children died in 1884, and since her death our subject's daughter has kept the children together. The family attend the Methodist Church.
