Abram Gooding Mauzy was born in Bourbon Co., Ky., Feb. 1825. He was near 81 years old at the time of his death. His early life was one of many hardships, having been left to fight
life's battles alone. He was a marvel of industry through all his life. In his few minutes of rest he would read, and soon commenced to teach school. At night he would study his lessons for the next day for fear the older scholars might ask him some questions he would not know. With hard work and pluck he saved some money and started in the dry goods business with R. M. Pomeroy, who in after years became president of **The Union Pacific Railroad," in Spartansburg, Ind. He married Emily R. Jameson in New Paris, Ohio, Nov. 3, 1847. They moved to Rushville in the early 50's and continued in the dry goods and grain business until his two sons, Wesley J. Mauzy and Charles A. Mauzy succeeded him in
