Harshbarger - David

David Harshbarger, farmer and graded stock raiser, Ladoga, is  a son of Mr. Samuel and Elizabeth MYERS) Harshbarger, who came to  this township from Virginia with their family in 1837, though he  came here in 1831, and entered land in Secs. 34 and 35, T. 17, R.  4 W, on his farm. Here he lived, and reared a thrifty and  industrious family, and died at the honorable old age of  seventy-two years. Mrs. Harshbarger died in 1850. David was born  in Scott township, on the old farm, and in the same house where  he now lives, February 4, 1842, and was reared to a farmer's  life. January 27, 1870, he married Miss Sarah A., daughter of  William F. and Mary A. HOSTETTER) DAVIDSON. She was born in Union  township, Montgomery County, Indiana, July 30, 1845. They have  three children: Clara A., Saloma B. and Cora E. He is now  actively engaged in farming and stock raising, and has for the  last few years turned his attention to the breeding and raising  of graded short-horns, and is feeding yearly about a car load of  fine export steers. In fact, his stock farm and house (which is a  fine brick) reflect great credit on their proprietor. He is a  democrat, as was also his father, though he was always opposed to  slavery, and for that reason left Virginia and come to the free  state of Indiana. ROSEBRIAR@EARTHLINK.NET Thank you Mr. to
