Taken from the 1880 Atlas of Steuben County, IN  p.14 clm. 3

Twichell, W.H., Recorder.  The Twichells were among the first settlers of Steuben County, the parents of this gentleman, Benjamin S. and Sabra Twichell, natives of New York having settled in Jackson Township in 1836, where they resided until death.  The subject of this sketch grew to manhood on his father's farm, receiving a good education in the school of his district.  He followed farming in his youth, teaching school occasionally in the winter months.  In 1860, he was elected Sheriff of the county, and re-elected in 1862.  At the expiration of his official career as Sheriff, he
began merchandising in Orland, removing thence to Angola.  He was married in this county, November 17, 1859, to Elnora A. Hicks, a native of Pennsylvania, to whom has been born Cortez J. and Robert B. Hicks, both deceased.  In 1878, he was elected Recorder of Steuben County, and began his duties November 1, 1879.  Mr. Twichell is well liked in the county, and makes an affable and attentive official, and having filled the Sheriff's office twice to the people's satisfaction, they have shown their confidence in him by electing him Recorder.
