Joseph CONRAD, farmer and stock raiser, Colfax was born in 1830 in Ross County, Ohio. In 1834 he came to Indiana with his parent, Jessee and Mary Conrad. The former a native of Kentucky was born in 1805 and died in 1874; the latter a native of Md, died in 1850. Mr. Conrad was married in 1859 to Susan CLARK, daughter of Robert & Sarah Clark, both natives of Ohio, and pioneer settlers of Indiana. By this union he has 5 (?)  children: Emma L; Lena A; Jessee H and Willie F. In politics he is a republican, and a zealous member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Bethel. During the war he was a member of the Montgomery home guards, and was called out on the Morgan raid. His grandparents on his father's side were pioneers of Kentucky, on his mother's of Maryland. When he began life for himself his education was but little, and his money still less. For several years he rented land. Now he has a farm of 24 acres of good land, well improved and well stocked. - typed by kbz
