When Aaron was but three years old his parents moved to Steuben county, Indiana, on a farm at the late site of the village of Berlien, a part of which he still owned at his death. He was united in marriage with Ellen Hilton on February 25, 1883, and to this union were born two children, Wilbur, of Angola, and Mrs. Jennie Dunbrook, of Reading, Mich. His entire life since childhood was spent in Steuben county until last April, when he went to Reading to make his home with his daughter. Mrs. Berlien died March 11, 1913. Mr. Berlien was the last member of the family which consisted of three sons and a daughter.

He was of a friendly and cheerful disposition, making friends wherever he went and always speaking a good word of everyone.In every way he was a good man and an admirable citizen and when the Book of God is opened, the good deeds recorded there will bring him eternal reward.
