Joseph Wasson, farmer and stock raiser, Parkersburg, is a son of Samuel and Susanah ( McLEOD) Wasson, and was born in Bourbon County, Kentucky, October 12, 1828. In the fall of 1835 he, with his parents, emigrated in a four-horse wagon to what is now Brown township, Montgomery County, Indiana, occupying twelve days in making the trip. His advantages as regards education were very limited during his early youth, though after he arrived at his majority he attended a graded school, after which he entered his brother's store at Parkersburg as clerk. November 25, 1852, he married Miss Susan A., daughter of John and Sarah ( SEWEL) FRAME . She was born June 24, 1834, and is a native of Kentucky, and came with her parents to this County in its early history. They have four children: Cordelia J., John C. and Minnie. Mr. Wasson now owns a neat little farm of 115 acres one mile north of Parkersburg, on which is laid out the private family Cemetery of the Wassons and Frames. He has been a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church the last twenty-one years; is its present class-leader, and has aided largely in building up and supporting the Church through its early history. Mr. Wasson is, politically, a republican.
