son of Nathaniel and Sophia (Salmon) Tway, natives of Ohio, the former of scotch Irish and the latter of Dutch

of Ohio, of Dutch and English descent. Six children have been bora to bless this union, viz: Albert, Joseph H.
Mary S., Eliza, David Ross and Margaret. Mrs. Tway is a member of the Universalist Church. Mr. Tway is a stanch
Republican and takes a great interest in the political welfare of his party. His grandfather was a soldier in the
war of the Revolution, and he had a brother Nathaniel, who fought in the late rebellion as Orderly Sergeant, in
the One Hundred and Fourteenth Regiment Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and served through the war. Mr. Tway is a live,
energetic business man, and has made his property by his own personal efforts.
