1905 Biography:
John B. Segrist is one of the sterling pioneer citizens of York Township, where he has maintained his home for more than half a century, and he has here gained a full measure of success in connection with the vocation of farming. He was born in the Kingdon of Wuertemburg, Germany, on the 30th of August, 1823, being a son of John B and Agnes (Laudenschlager) Segrist, who immigrated to America when he was about eight years of age, settling in Berks county, Pennsylvannia, where he was reared to the age of eighteen years, being afforded the advantages of common schools of the locality and period. He then set forth to face the problems and labors of life on his own responsibility, coiming to Ohio and settling in Stark county, where he remained about five years, at the expiration of which he removed to the city of Toledo, where he made his home about four years, being employed at the butchering trade during this period. In 1853 he came to Fulton county and settled in York township, where he secured two hundred and forty acres of land, the greater portion being unreclaimed. He has developed one of the valuable farms of the county, having erected good buildings and now having a fine homstead of two hundred and forty acres. He has been known as an energetic and progressive farmer and stock-grower, and he has so ordered his course as to retain the unequivocal confidence and esteem of his fellow-men, his entire life having been dominated by absolute integrity of purpose. His political allegiance given to the Demoratic party, and his religious faith is that of the Lutheran church, of which he has been a member from his youth. In Coshocton county, Ohio, in 1851, Mr. Segrist was united in marriage to Miss Christiana Laudenschlager, and she died in 1866. Six children were born of this union, namely: Amanda, who is deceased; Mary Ann, who is the wife of Jonas H. Seymour, a representative farmer of York township; William H., who is like-wise was a successful farmer of this township; George who is deceased; John E., who is a prosperous farmer of York township; and Agnes D., who is the wife of Samuel Ruppert, of Wauseon. In February, 1868, Mr. Segrist was married to Miss Lucinda Bowmann, of New Bedford, Coshocton county, and she was summoned to the life eternal in July 1891, leaving three children--Ellen, who is the wife of Elijah Dickerson, of Delta, this county; Theodore, who has charge of the operation of the homestead farm; and Fred A., who is engaged in farming in Swan Creek township.
