JACOB C.

He was born on a farm in Adams Township, Darke County, Ohio, three miles west of his present place, June 21, 1867, and is a son of Jeremiah and Anna (Christian) Katherman.

Jacob C. Katherman was reared on his birthplace farm, on which his parents passed the whole period of their married life. In 1891 he moved to his farm in Newberry Township, making few improvements until 1903, when he started in to erect the substantial and appropriate farm buildings which do much to add to the value of this property and, largely to its attractive appearance. His plans required the expenditure of a large amount of money, but Mr. Katherman had full confidence in himself and inspired it in others, so that he had no difficulty in borrowing the necessary $5,000 with which he made the improvements that he had in mind. This indebtedness is all paid and other improvements have been made, and Mr. Katherman is considered one of tile substantial as well as one of the most reliable men of this section. In addition to carrying on a general agricultural line since 1905 he has devoted a part of his eighty acres to pasturage, keeping twelve cows and carrying on dairying. He his been very active in promoting all agricultural progress in Miami County and for ten years served as a member of the Fair Board, from 1898 until 1908, during all this period working hard to make the agricultural expositions successful. His acquaintances and friends are many at Troy, Piqua and other points.

Mr. Katherman married Miss Ella Loxley, a daughter of B. F. and Phebe Ann (Kaylor) Loxley, and they have a family of seven children, namely: Ethel, who is the wife of Owen B. Smith; and Benjamin, Chloe, Jeremiah, Paul, Opal and Llora. Mr. Katherman was reared in the Dunkard Church, in which his father was a preacher.
