"Adam Accuntius was born in the neighboring county of Shelby, where he was reared and where he was living when the Civil War broke out. He enlisted his services in behalf of the cause of the Union and served as a soldier for three years and three months, a member of Company M (*), 1st Ohio Light Artillery, going into service in September, 1861. Upon the completion of his military service, Mr. Accuntius returned home and presently married in his home county to Caroline Gross, who also was born in Shelby county. Not long after his marriage he came up into Auglaize county and bought a "forty" in the northeast quarter of section 19 of Clay Township, where he established his home. Mr. Accuntius was a good farmer and before very long added to his holdings there and adjoining "forty." He continued to increase his land holdings as the years passed and as his affairs prospered until he became the owner of more than 600 acres of land in this county and continued actively engaged in farming until his retirement and removal to the village of Geyer, where he is now living, having sold his land, and is devoting his attention to other forms of investment. To Adam Accuntius and wife were born fourteen children, all of whom are living save two-John and Michael-the others (besides the subject of this sketch) being George, William, Henry, Louis, Charles, Mattie, Sarah, Mary, Elizabeth, Caroline, and Anna.
