SAMUEL MOGLE, fanner, P. 0. McComb, was born near the village of Millheim, Centre Co., Penn., March 17, 1817; son of Valentine and Polly (Moore) Mogle, natives of Pennsylvania, and of Dutch descent. Valentine Mogle moved to Ashland County, Ohio, was one of its pioneers, and located on a farm; thence moved to this county in 1855, and settled in this township, near Findlay. Our subject, the second born and eldest son in a family of eleven children, was reared on the farm, his early means of obtaining an education being limited by his location in a newly settled country, where there was but a small population. He came here in 1851 and located on land (covered by woods) on Section 26, Pleasant Township, where he has since lived. He lately sold five acres of this farm for $150 per acre and would not sell the rest for $100 per acre. He is also owner of eighty acres more. He is well and favorably known as a thresher, using horsepower till he found out he could accomplish more by steam, When he bought a steam thresher, which he still operates: Mr. Mogle was married, in 1845, to Sarah, daughter of George Foff, a farmer of Ashland County, Ohio, and of German origin. Her parents were natives of Pennsylvania. This union has been blessed with two children, William, married and farming on his father's land, and who also runs a steam thresher and a corn huller; Amanda, now the wife of M. Abbott, a son of Dr. Abbott, of McComb. The family are members of the Lutheran Church, in which our subject was class leader while a resident of Ashland county. He is a Democrat in politics.
