Jacob Hitler, father of Nelson, was three years old when his father brought the family to Ohio. His whole life was spent in Pickaway County, which he subsequently served as commissioner. In many ways he was a self-made man, as there were few educational or social advantages to be secured in his youth. At the time of his death, in 1879, he was held in the greatest respect by his fellow citizens. He married Sarah Gougar, who was also born in Pennsylvania, and they had seven children, the two survivors being: Nelson, of this sketch, and Ellen, who is the wife of Evan Phillips, of Pickaway township. The members of the family who have passed away were : George, Daniel, Susan, Evaline and Jacob, a number of them occupying prominent places in their lifetime.
