ISAAC N. LARRICK, who will long be held in remembrance as an honest, upright man and useful citizen, was an early and successful farmer of Montgomery County, Ind., and was later one of the highly esteemed and well known residents of Darlington. Mr. Larrick was born in Ross County, Ohio, in 1819, and received his youthful education and home training in the state which furnished so many pioneer settlers for the far west. Mr. Larrick was named in honor of his father, and was the eldest of five children.
The parents were of Pennsylvania Dutch extraction and were prudent, hard-working people, and early trained their children to habits of useful industry. The four sons whose names are recorded are: Isaac N., deceased; Robert, deceased; James and Jacob. Isaac N., being the eldest, it was necessary for him to assist his parents while the other children were growing to manhood. Mr. Larrick, therefore, dutifully remained with the father, mother and brothers until he had arrived at man's estate, when he journeyed to Indiana, hoping there to become prosperous and make a home.
Mr. Larrick came to Crawfordsville, and there found employment and married Mrs. Elizabeth Holmes, a most excellent lady and daughter of John and Jane Tillard. Mr. Larrick and his wife began their housekeeping upon a farm in Union Township. They remained there for a time,
the husband industriously sowing, ploughing, reaping and being engaged in the miscellaneous duties agricultural life entails upon the "tiller of the soil." Finally they removed to the town of Darlington, the birth-place of their seven children. Of the seven little ones who came into their home and were its joy and pride, but three survived the perils and dread diseases incidental to early youth.
Mr. and Mrs. Isaac N. Larrick enjoyed a large circle of friends and acquaintances, and were universally respected by all the residents of the town where they spent so many years. Their three sons are widely known as citizens of worth and intelligence, progressive in their ideas and deeply interested in all affairs of public moment and local improvement. The brothers are: John A., now a farmer near Crawfordsville; Robert H., a successful agriculturist near Darlington, and Isaac, who bears the given name of both the father and grandfather, and is a merchant, dealing in groceries in Darlington. He was born in 1851, and educated in the common schools of the county.
In 1881 Mr. Isaac Larrick engaged in merchandising on a small scale. Giving his close attention to the demands of his new business, and extending to all with whom he came in contact a ready and courteous service, being always fair and honorable in his dealings, he naturally prospered and won a permanent success. He now carries the largest and most complete stock of goods, in his line of business, in the town. The same courtesy, energy and affability which characterize Mr. Larrick in his daily business life also distinguish him in his conduct of official work. Elected to fill the position of Trustee of Franklin Township, he served with faithfulness and ability during 1886 and 1887, and in his official capacity gave great satisfaction to the general local public. Mr. Larrick is a strong Democrat and votes with the party on all national issues, but is liberal in sentiment, and in local affairs would vote for the best man for the place. Socially inclined, and having resided all his life in Darlington, he can safely call the greater portion of the inhabitants of the town and surrounding country his very good friends and well-wishers.
