CHARLES F. BOESLING.
This prominent resident of Flat Rock township, Henry county, has been extensively engaged in agricultural work
in that locality for a number of years, and has lately become interested in the milling business at Florida, Henry
county, his venture proving highly successful. His enterprise and energy are worthy of emulation, and his history
finds an appropriate place among those of the leading business men of the section.
Mr. Boesling is a native of Henry county, having been born in Napoleon township, October 8, 1855. When he was about
fourteen years old his parents, Henry and Sophia (Hase) Boesling, removed to Flat Rock township, where our subject
has ever since resided. In early manhood he engaged in agriculture, and he now owns a fine farm of three hundred
and forty seven acres, which he manages in a scientific manner, being regarded as one of the successful farmers
of the county. Until 1897 his agricultural interests occupied his attention exclusively; but in the spring of that
year he purchased the roller gristmill at Florida, which he is now conducting, the daily capacity being seventy
He has a pleasant home in Flat Rock township, and is identified with various progressive movements in his community,
being especially active in religious work as a member of the Lutheran Church. On October 28, 1880, he was married
in that township to Miss Sophia Bahrens, daughter of Henry Bahrens, a well known resident of Adams township, Defiance
county. Five children have blessed this union: Minnie, Karl, Frederick, Emma, and Arena.
