JOHN W. WELLER
John W. Weller, who since the age of eighteen years has been engaged in operating the mill near Fultonham, was born in Newton Township, April 2, 1858.
His father, Henry Weller, also a native of Newton Township, died when his son John W. was eight years of age. He belonged to an old and prominent family of the township, and in his life displayed sterling traits of character which gained him warm friendships and high regard.
No event of special importance occurred to vary the routine of farm life for John W. Weller in his boyhood days. He attended the public schools and from his youth was familiar with the work of milling, and at the age of eighteen years took charge of the mill which he now owns and operates. He was for a time in partnership with his brother, C. E. Weller, but for fourteen years has been sole owner.
He is engaged in the manufacture of flour and feed and also operates a saw mill located on Jonathan Creek. His has been a busy life and he conducts a leading industry of the community. He has worked on persistently day after day, and his record proves the value of persistent labor and energy as forces in winning success.
On the 6th of March, 1879, Mr. Weller was united in marriage to Miss Laura L. Lenhart, who was born in Newton Township, and was the daughter of Frederick Lenhart, and a member of one of the old families of this county.
She passed away, November 10, 1899. Their marriage has been blessed with four children: Jessie L., Eunice Z., Roland H. and John F.
On July 11, 1901, Mr. Weller again married, his second union being with Addie S. Bowers, a native of Newton Township.
He is a man of good principles, true to his convictions. He is an earnest advocate of the temperance cause, and manifests his devotion thereto by his support of the prohibition party. His religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Methodist Episcopal church.
