WILLIAM KING. This prominent agriculturist, who is closely identified with the interests of Allen township, Ottawa county, of which he has been a resident for the past twenty-eight years, is a native of New York, having been born in Niagara county, that State, January 11, 1837.

His parents were Sherman and Rebecca (Benedict) King, the former a native of Connecticut, and the latter of Massachusetts, of English descent.

Mr. King was brought up on a farm in the State of his birth, receiving his education in the district Schools. In 1856 he came to Ohio, and locating near Fremont was for some time employed by
Mr. Samuel King, a farmer of Sandusky county.

For ten years he remained in that county, engaged in farm work, and in 1867 came to Clay township, Ottawa county, settling in that part which has since been set off and named Allen township. Here he has continuously carried on agricultural pursuits, and has done much toward the improvement and up- building of his community.

Mr. King was married January 11, 1858, to Mary M. Roberts. They had seven children, namely: Ervin, Sarah, Rosie, Solomon, Viola, Mary, and Cynthia.

Mr. King had always been a firm adherent of the Democratic party, and was looked upon as one of the intelligent, reliable men of the county. His family were faithful attendants at the Methodist Protestant Church in Curtice.
