George W. King

This old pioneer was born in Hamilton county, Ohio, February 6, 1823, and at the age of three years came to the State of Indiana, settling first in Wayne county, where G.W. King resided up to the year 1836, when he came to Pipe-creek township, Madison county, Indiana, where he has since resided. On the 2nd day of March, 1845, he was married to Elizabeth Howard, who was born in North Carolina July 18, 1825. They soon commenced keeping house in the then new county in the woods, and carved out a fine farm, which they lived on till the year 1875, when they moved to Frankton, Indiana, where they now (1888) reside. Mr. King is a grand representative pioneer. Strong and full of hope and determination, he came to the front when there was plenty of hard work to do, and has done his part if there is a man in the county that has. He has attended as many as eighteen "log rollings" in one spring, and has never been broke down at the spike.

In 1859 he joined the New Light Church, and in 1870 he united with the M.E. Church, and since that time has been closely associated with that church, and is a speaker and worker of note, and also a Sunday-school worker of whom the county is proud. A Republican of long standing---ever since 1856. Before that he was a Whig. Mr. and Mrs. King stand high in the county, and especially at thier home, where they delight to welcome their many friends in their old age. Children's names: William D., born August 6, 1847, died in infancy; Orinda J., born April 12, 1849, married to Calvin King (she died January, 1879); Joseph J., born December 24, 1851, died September 3, 1869; Sarah C., born May 6, 1853, married to Jesse Denny, resides in Lincoln, Indiana; Francis M., born May 19, 1855, married to Lydia Cripe, resides in Madison county; Mathias A., born May 19, 1855, married to Laura Hicks, resides in Madison county, Indiana; Thomas J., born January 30, 1858, married to Eliza Johnson, resides in Madison county, Indiana; Margaret L., born October 6, 1860; Jonathan C., born April 25, 1862, resides in Farragut, Iowa, and is a teacher in the schools of that place; Daniel B., born October 8, 1864, married to Margaret Smithson, is a teacher in the Elwood schools; Ozro S., born August 25, 1867 (deceased). All the deceased members of this family are buried at the Howard cemetery, near Frankton, Indiana. In 1859 Mr. G.W. King joined the Masonic order, Frankton Lodge, No. 290, and is an active, worthy member of that ancient order, and no worthy member ever knocked at Bro. King's door in vain.
