Dinsmore Township History

Eli Abbott was born in Dinsmore Township, Shelby Co., OH, on July 30, 1844. He is the son of William H. and Susannah Abbott. He was educated in the common schools of Dinsmore Township; also attended normal school at Sidney. In the fall of 1864, he began teaching school in Auglaize Co., taught three months, or until Feb. 13, 1865, when he enlisted in Company D, 192nd O.V.I. and served until some time after the close of the war. He was discharged from the service September 7, 1865, and then returned to his home in Dinsmore Township. On the 26th of October, he married Miss Charity, daughter of George and Catherine Turner, who was born in Dinsmore Township, this county, August 21, 1843. Mr. and Mrs. Abbott settled on the farm in Section 6, Dinsmore Township, on which they have since resided. They have a family of four children, three sons and one daughter. In the fall of 1868, he again began teaching, which he followed as his vocation about four months each winter, and conducted his farm during the summer months, until 1880, when he retired from teaching, and has since given all of his time to farming, which he has conducted successfully, and now owns a farm of 120 acres in Section 6, Dinsmore Township.
