Artlip, Reuben B., supervisor of Greenwood, born near Cochranton, Pa., Feb. 15,
1849, son of Reuben and Lucinda Artlip, who were farmers. They moved to
Chautauqua, N.Y., in 1852 and from there to Marion, Ohio in 1858, then in 1862 to Ionia Co., Michigan, remaining there 2 years. In August 1864 they came to Oceana County and settled on section 33 of Greenwood. Our subject took advantage during this time to attend school whenever an opportunity offered. He cleared up the home farm and in 1871 married Miss Sarah Colgrove of Orleans Co., N.Y. He purchased his present farm in section 34 in 1879 and for the second time began clearing a home out of the woods. That he has been successful one needs only to look at the well kept farm and neat buildings to satisfy him, for it takes an enterprising man to clear up two farms out of the virgin forest. He held the office of justice of the peace from 1884-92, was highway commissioner 3 yrs. and has been supervisor since 1890. Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Artlip and they reside at home: Willis, George, Asa, Ina, Alfred, Ira and the infant baby born in Nove. 1895. Mr. Artlip is one of Greenwood's most widely and favorably know citizens.
