Birth: Aug. 22, 1834
Darke County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jul. 20, 1929
Darke County
Ohio, USA

Mary Bitner was his wife. They were married October 1, 1857 in Darke County, Ohio. He was in the Abbottville Mausoleum and I'm not sure where they moved him IF they did.

William Drew, farmer, P O Delisle; was born in Van Buren Township in 1834, and is the son of Robert Drew, who was born in New Jersey, March 29, 1807, and moved to Darke County, around 1825, and located here, when there were but a few settlers in the township. Mr Drew, the subject of our sketch, was the third of twelve chidlren, five sons and seven daughters, nine of whom are now living. Mr Drew was united in marriage to Mary Bitner, daughter of John Bitner; she was born in Darke County March 9, 1837; They first settled at Delisle, on the place now owned by S. W. Allread, where they remained two years; then moved to a farm in the neighborhood for a short time, then back again, and engaged in merchandising about six months; then sold out and moved to present place of residence, where they have since resided and followed farming, except for two years, in which he was in mercantile trade in Delisle. They were the parents of nine children, six of whom are now living, viz., Rosetta, Abraham, Franklin, Elmer, Nora, and Edward. Mr Drew has gained a good competency, being owner of 280 acres of excellent land, all except 80 acres of which were made by his own energy and industry. Mr Drew is at present Township Treasurer, thus showing not only that with his industry and perseverance he has accumulated quite a property, but also has the confidence and perservance he has accumulated quite a property but also has the confidence of the community in which he lives, by the trust they have placed in his hands; this being another example to the rising generation of what indefatigable industry, together with honorable dealings with his fellow-men, may accomplish.
