Our subject came from Breconshire, South Wales, with his parents, Benjamin and Margaret (Morgans) Herbert, in 1818; Was but a child 5 years of age at that time he was born May 19, 1813, and was one of a family of eight children, six of whom are living at the present time.

The father was a sober, industrious man, a consistent member of the Baptist Church, held in an early day many positions of honor and trust in church and township he departed this life June 13, 1858, followed by his wife Feb. 11, 1868.

The long and eventful life of our subject has been passed upon a farm and working at carpentering; in early life, he received such education as the common schools of that early day afforded; he served an apprenticeship at the carpenter's trade with his brother Lemuel, after which he worked with him some years; he has in connection with farming followed his trade since he began doing business for himself.

His marriage with Elizabeth Jones was celebrated Nov. 2, 1846. She was born in Breconshire, Wales, July 22, 1822, and is a daughter of Rees and Rachel (Evans) Jones, who came from Wales to the United States in 1842; from our subject's marriage there were five children, three of whom are now living-Benjamin L., William, and Mollie E.; the deceased -- Elizabeth A. and Margaret R.

Mr. Herbert and wife are among the well-informed people of the county. Mr. Herbert is a Republican. He owns 100 acres of nicely improved land, all of which is under a high state of cultivation."
