JOHN S. MAIN, general farmer, residing on his well cultivated place containing forty six acres, which is situated
in North Beaver Township, on the line road which separates Ohio and Pennsylvania, about one mile south of the Mt.
Jackson and Springfield Road, is a highly esteemed citizen of this section. Mr. Main was born August 13, 1851,
in Beaver County, Pennsylvania, and is a son of Nicholas and Elizabeth (Wilson) Main.
The father of Mr. Main was a farmer and came to Lawrence County in 1859. John S Main has thus been familiar with
an agricultural life, in all its departments, since boyhood. In 1891 he purchased his present farm, which was formerly
the property of his father in law, William Pitts. Mr. Main was married (first) to Almina Elizabeth Pitts, who died
in the spring of 1899. She was a daughter of William and Sylvia Pitts, the former of whom was long one of the leading
men of this section. For thirteen years Mr. Pitts was a magistrate in North Beaver Township, and for some fourteen
years he taught school, both in English and German. Mr. Main was married, secondly, to Mrs. Jemima Hutchinson,
who was the widow of Curtis Hutchinson, and a daughter of John Bay. One son has been born to Mr. and Mrs. Main,
Calvin Sidney Leroy. Mr. and Mrs. Main are members of the Petersburg Methodist Episcopal Church, in which he is
a class leader.
