9 ABRAHAM SHAMBAUGH, is a native of Tippecanoe County, Indiana, born on the old homestead in Shelby Township, August 28, 1847, his parents, Jacob and Elizabeth (Cuppy) Shambaugh, being among the old and honored pioneers of the county. Jacob Shambaugh, the father of our subject, was born in Pennsylvania, and when a boy went to Ohio, where he grew to manhood, and was first married in that State. Shortly after his marriage he came to Indiana, and entered land on Coal Creek in the western part of the State. He liked that location in some respects, but the first season he spent there he lost all of his horses by milk sickness. He then left that locality and came to Tippecanoe County, and entered 160 acres of land in Shelby Township, his land being covered with timber, though there was at that time no underbrush. He put up a temporary log cabin which his family occupied until it was replaced by a log house, in which he made his home until his death, which occurred January 26, 1867. In politics he was an old line Whig, becoming a Republican on the organization of that party, with which he was identified until his death. He was a member of the United Brethren church, having been connected with that denomination from its infancy in this vicinity, and was always active in church matters. His first wife died after coming to this county, and he married for his second wife Mrs. Elizabeth McFarland, who was born in October, 1808, and is yet living, making her home with her son Abraham, the subject of this sketch. She is also a member of the United Brethren church, and is a consistent Christian.

Abraham Shambaugh was reared in Shelby Township, and has always lived on the land on which his parents first settled in this county. He received seventeen acres of the homestead on the death of his father, and by his own persevering industry and good management he has added to it until he has accumulated 169 acres of his own land being well improved, with handsome and substantial residence, and farm buildings, and under fine cultivation. Mr. Shambaugh was married October 18, 1872, to Miss Mary Myers, a native of Ohio, and a daughter of Reuben and Eliza Myers, who now reside in Wabash Township, Tippecanoe County. Mr. and Mrs. Shambaugh are the parents of four children - Sarah Agnes, Charles Edgar, Helen Myers and Raymond Lynn. Politically Mr. Shambaugh affiliates with the Republican party. He has held the office of constable for six years, performing the duties of that position with honor to himself and satisfaction to his constituents. He is a man of pronounced temperance principles, and can say that he was but once in a saloon, and then in the performance of his official duty. Mrs. Shambaugh is a member of the Methodist church.

13 Adams County Ohio marriage records record that Margaret Smittle and James Foster married on 6 January 1820. They continued to reside in Wayne Township Ohio. They had three children. It is suspected that Margaret Smittle Foster may have died following the birth of Child #3, Mary Ann Foster. On 9 April 1827 "James" married Nancy Jane Boatman. They added eight children to the family. However, "Nancy Jane (Boatman) Foster was the mother to all eleven as they grew to adulthood.

By the 1830 Census, James and Nancy Foster had moved the family Northward about 12 miles and were located in the Southern part of Concord Township, Highland County, Ohio. (On present day road map, Locate State Road 136, South of Sugar Tree Ridge, About 2 miles, or 1 mile North of Adams-Highland County line)

The family moved to Northwest Grant County, Indiana and spent the remainder of their lives there.

14 Addie Clarinda Pratt, daughter of Elisha R. and Elizabeth (Black) Pratt was born on October 31, 1861 in the state of Illinois. When a small child she moved with her parents to Iowa, and eight years of age moved to a farm southeast of Fredericksburg. Here she lived until her marriage to George H. Fay, January 2, 1882. After a short visit with her sister in Kansas, she and her husband made their home of a farm near her parents. Here they lived, except for a few months in Sumner, until the spring of 1891. In that year they purchased a farm near Fredericksburg and lived there until moving to Fredericksburg in October, 1917. She lived in this city with her husband until her untimely death, November 14, 1930. During her early and middle life wherever sickness and distress called she was ever ready to assist. For years she was active in the work of the Royal Neighbors of America, and later, as long as her health permitted, gave her time and energy to the W.R.C. of which she was an enthusiastic member for many years. Mrs. Fay was also a charter member of the Rebekah Lodge. Her creed was always to do good to all as opportunity offered and especially obey the Golden Rule. Whatever that ye would that men should do to you do ye also unto them. By their works ye shall be known. She leaves to mourn her husband and one daughter Jesse (Mrs. F.S. Marr of Cedar Falls) two grand children Dorothy (Mrs. John Leitch, Jr.), and Fay S. Marr of Cedar Falls. Also one grandson, Dennison Leitch, and one nephew in Texas and a niece and nephew in Kansas. Pratt, Addie Clarinda (I701)

20 Anthony was born near Maysville, Kentucky, in the year 1795. Four years later his parents settled in Adams County, Ohio, where he grew to maturity and assisted in clearing up his father's farm. Anthony was united in marriage with Catherine McIltree, remaining in Adams County until 1824, when he came to Clinton County, where he purchased land and settled three miles east of Port William. He was one of these determined pioneers, possessed with good health, and he soon made an opening in the forest, and the result of their labor should today stand as a monument of our lives. From 1834 to 1844 he was a non resident of the county but returned from Putnam County, and took up his residence in Clinton County, where he died Sept. 29, 1852, his widow still survives at the age of four score years and over. They were the parents of eleven children of whom eight are now living (as of 1882). Earley, Anthony (I297)
