SAMUEL COBERLY, farmer, P. 0. Walnut Run, son of William Coberly, whose sketch appears under the name of John
G Coberly, of this township, was born in Madison County July 4 1832. He was raised as a farmer and has spent his
entire life in that occupation. He received a limited education in the district schools of his neighborhood, which
he attended when work on the farm was slack. He married Eliza Simpkins, of Clark County, Ohio, by whom he has had
four children, viz.: Darius, born October 6, 1852, married Lavina Clark and has three children; Mary, born March
8, 1860; Dora, born April 4, 1862, married David Suth, and has two children; and Samuel W., born July 31, 1869.
Mr. C. remained on his father's farm five years after marriage, when the farm was sold to Samuel Watson, with whom
he remained as a tenant eighteen years. He then moved to Clark County, and remained two years, after which he went
to John G. Coberly's, and from there to where he now resides, in Paint Township, having lived there three years.
He is a vigorous, industrious man, a good, practical farmer and steady in all his habits.
