===========================================================
Biographical sketch extracted from:

Biographical and historical record of Adams and Wells counties, Indiana. Chicago: Lewis Publishing Co., 1887. pp. 759-760.

John Joseph Nusbaumer was born 29 Feb 1824 in Canton Solothurn, Switzerland, and died 28 Sep 1909 in Wells County, Indiana.

JOHN JOSEPH NUSBAUMER, was a farmer, in Nottingham Township, Wells County, Indiana. He was born near Canton Solothurn, Switzerland, February 29, 1824, son of Joseph and Barbara (Schwaller) Nusbaumer, also natives of that country.

The father followed farming and milling. John J. assisted his father in his work, and in 1842, when he was eighteen years of age, the family left their native land, and going through France to Havre, took passage on the ship Ville de Lyons. After a pleasant voyage of thirty-six days they arrived in New York the last of June.

The father preceded them one year, and had purchased 100 acres of land in Wayne County, Ohio, then went back to Switzerland for his family. From New York they went up the Hudson River, the Erie Canal, Lake Erie to Cleveland, thence by canal to Massillon, and by wagon to their new home.

There they followed farming, butchering, changing to grocery keeping, etc., until 1863, then removed to Wells County, where our subject bought eighty acres of land where he resided, about forty acres being partly cleared. He has added to his original purchase until he now owns 160 acres of excellent land, 100 acres being cleared of timber. His father died in September, 1865, and his mother in October, 1876.

John J. was married in this county July 12, 1863, to Elizabeth Warner, a native of Fairfield County, Ohio, and a daughter of Isaac and Mary (Dundoor) Warner, natives of Pennsylvania. Her father died when she was a small child, and her mother afterward married Samuel Shoemaker. She died when Mrs. Nusbaumer was fourteen years of age. Mr. and Mrs. Nusbaumer are the parents of ten children—Alexander and Lewis A. (twins), Franklin, Mary Ann, Christina, Magdalena, Sarah Ann, Agnes, Catherine and Eva. The parents and family are members of the Catholic church, and in politics he is a Democrat.
