A. W. DAUGHERTY & Bro. proprietors of the Model Mills, Ladoga. There always seems to be room in any locality for wide awake business men in whatever line of business they may choose to engage. A practical demonstration of this fact has been made by A. W. & J Daugherty, proprietors of the Model Mills of Ladoga. They were born in Green Co, Ohio, Andrew W. in 1831 and Josiah in 1836, and are the sons of James and Mary a (CRAMER) Daugherty, who were of Irish & German decent. They removed with their family to Montgomery Co, Indiana in 1841, first locating at Darlington, thence removed to Crawfordsville, and to Ladoga in 1844. The Daugherty brothers were raised to the milling business, there father being a linseed oil maker and roll carder, which he followed in this County for a number of years. He died in 1877, being about 66 years of age, and his wife d. in 1868 at the age of 58. The long experience the Daugherty Brothers have had in the mill business enables them to know the wants of the public, therefore they have added all the modern improvements to their mill and are able to compete with other mills in the County. They are prominent members of the fraternity of Odd Fellows, and are staunch republicans. Josiah marr, in 1867, Miss Rachel KISER, a native of Wayne Co, Ohio and has two children: Harry, aged 10; Annie, aged 6.
