Who's Who

JOHN H. HARSHBARGER



Source: H. W. Beckwith History of Montgomery County, Indiana (Chicago: HH Hill, 1881) p 468


John H. HARSHBARGER, farmer and stock raiser, New Ross, son of Samuel & Elizabeth (MYERS) Harshbarger, was b. in Va Jan 5, 1832 and in 1837 came with his parents to this County and settled in Scott Twp, where John H. grew up, educated in al the arts of early settling in the new country, and where the foundation of affability and hospitality was early laid and strong. Feb 2, 1854 he was marr. to Miss Susan, daughter of Willis and Hannah JONES) CLARK. She was b. in Putnam Co, In March 30, 1837. They became the parents of a4 children: Oliver W; Samuel M; William F; and Nannie E. Soon after his marr. he moved upon his present farm in the NE part of Clark Twp., and immediately began improving his new home with that untiring energy which has characterized his every movement. by dint of steady application, and a sturdy will that had been trained in a persevering school, he is now enjoying the comforts furnished by one of the best improved 200-acre farms in this beautiful portion of the Hoosier State. Mr. H. traces his family genealogy back to Germany, where his great grandfather was born. Of Mr. H;s own father the writer is able to say, of his own personal knowledge, that to him is due the credit of rearing one of the families in point of intelligence, industry and honor in this part of the County and a family that any father would have just reason to be proud. - typed by kbz
