Joseph O. Hartley, a highly respected farmer of Liberty Township, is a native of Marion County, Va., born February 25, 1825, being the eldest of ten children born to Elisha and Sarah (Emerson) Hartley, who were early settlers of Henry County, Ind., where they passed their lives in agricultural pursuits. Joseph O. was reared at home, receiving but little schooling. On reaching his majority, he began life for himself by renting a farm. In 1849 he came to Grant County and entered forty acres of land where he now lives, which he cleared and improved, undergoing the hardships and privations incident to pioneer life, and by hard labor and strict economy became the owner o f 120 acres of good land. He also assisted in clearing and building the road from the Howard County line to the Center Schoolhouse in Liberty Township. Mr. Hartley has been twice married. In 1847 he wedded Eleanor Hammer, who bore him four children: Jeremiah, James M., Elisha, and Benjamin (deceased). Mrs. Hartley died in 1858. In 1859 he was united in marriage with Mary E., daughter of William and Celia (Williamson) Oldfield, by whom he is the father of two children: William and Sarah A. In politics he is a Democrat and is a member of the Masonic Fraternity.
