Forest County, PA Biographies





GEORGE B. WALTERS, farmer, P. O. Newmansville, Clarion Co., Penn., was born in Westmoreland county, Penn., in 1826, a son of David and Mary (Nealy) Walters, natives of that county, who moved to Clarion county in 1832. The grandfather of George B. was in the war of 1812; he afterward cleared a farm, and kept a hotel for a number of years. The parents of Mr. Walters reared eleven children; those living are George B., James, Daniel (of Tionesta), Henry and Josephine (on the homestead). Mr. Walters received but a limited education, aiding his father in clearing the land and other duties, which deprived him of. study. At the age of twenty two he began lumbering, which he continued until 1872, when he purchased his present farm. He married, in 1874, Miss Annie, daughter of Michael Roy, and they have two children: David and Daniel. Politically Mr. Walters is a Democrat, and has filled several township offices. The Walters family were among the first settlers in this section of the country, and by hard work and perseverance have transformed the forest into fine cultured farms.
