Son of John APPLEBY and Priscilla MONTAGUE. Husband of Anna Catherine FLEMING.
John S. APPLEBY, Shirleysburg, Pa., was born in Huntingdon county, June 26, 1847, son of John and Priscilla (Montague) Appleby. He was educated in the common school of his native county, in Dublin township, and at Milnwood Academy, Shade Gap, Pa., where he completed his course at the age of seventeen. His father having died when John S. was a boy, his first business after leaving school was to work for his mother on the farm, which he assisted her in cultivating for seven years. After this he engaged in farming on his own account, and continued it until 1896.
Mr. Appleby is well known throughout his county, and highly esteemed. He has done good service for the community, which is evidently appreciated by his fellow citizens. His first office was that of judge of elections, which he occupied for a year; he was then elected inspector, and after his year of service in that capacity had expired, was again made judge of elections, and served another year. In 1885 Mr. Appleby6 was elected to the school board, and served six years, at the end of which time he was appointed to fill out the unexpired term of another director. During his time of service on the board, he was for five years its secretary. In 1890 he was elected justice of the peace for Dublin township; he served five years. He had removed to Shirleysburg when, in 1895, he was appointed steward of the Huntingdon county almshouse; he is still in that position. Mr. Appleby's politics are Republican.
John S. Appleby was married June 26, 1867, to Annie C., daughter of James and Elizabeth (Fleming) Wilson. Their children are: Lauretta A. (Mrs. John A. Foreman), died April 11, 1892, aged twenty-three years, ten months and four days; Jessie, died in infancy; Thomas B.; James C.; Annie J.; Mary Matilda (Mrs. Harry Foreman); Priscilla B.; John Orian; Harry C.; Eulie E.; and Roy. Mr. Appleby and his family are members of the Presbyterian church.
