Of their family, our subject, the fourth, was born near London, Madison Co., Ohio, in April, 1840. His residence in his native county is unbroken. save one year spent in Franklin County. In the fall of 1804, he enlisted in Company E, One Hundred and Eighty second Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, serving to the close of the war, and participating in the battle of Nashville, Tenn. After his return home, he engaged in saw milling and farming, which he has followed to the present. He owns 175 acres of land, which classes him among the well to do farmers of the township. He does not indorse the theory of some authors, that "a man unmarried is only a half a man," but has seen fit to thus far live a life of singleness.
