His farm comprises 168 acres, all inclosed, and 90 acres under the plow, the estimated value of which is $8,500. He has been a Democrat all his life. Mrs. Childers is a member of the Lutheran Church. Of these parents six children have been born: Ella, wife of Jasper BRITTON ; Kittie, now Mrs. James H. ARMANTROUT ; William who married Miss Emma WATKIN S; Belle, wife of James M.
