He was born in the Buckeye state, Carroll Co., June 2, 1836, where he was raised and received his education. In the fall of 1858 he came to this county and in 1867 he occupied his present home.

"He was married in 1861 to Sarah Catherine Taylor, of this county, formerly of Indiana, and has six children; Lizzie R., May L., John F., Geo. W., Anna W. and one deceased, Effie Jane.

"In politics Mr. L. is a republican, and his post office is Bloomfield. He is an upright, honorable man, well respected by those who know him."
