DAVID W. POLING was born June 3, 1838, in Marion County, W.Va., and is the youngest of the three children of Jonas and Rachel (Pitzer) Poling, natives respectively of New Jersey and Virginia, and of English and German descent. David W. Poling received a good education - so good that he became a teacher, and taught eighteen terms of school. He remained with his parents until August 25, 1858, when he married Ann Eliza Barrick, of Noble County, Ohio, and to this union six children have been born - William H., Susan A., Henry B,. Ida M., Samuel C., and Fletcher. In September, 1864, he enlisted in Company C, Twenty-second Indiana Regiment, and was engaged in the battle of Nashville and the Southeastern campaign; was in the grand review at Washington, and was discharged June, 1865. In 1848, our subject came to Noble County, Ind., with his parents, who engaged in farming. In 1861, our subject moved to this county and divided his time between teaching and farming; he owns eighty acres at Needmore, besides a house and lot. Mr. Poling was elected Justice of the Peace for two terms, and December, 1882, was commissioned Notary Public. In politics, he is a Republican.
