NOAH B. BARNHISEL

One of the successful farming men of Perry Township and a man whose life has been one of the most uplifting character, resulting undeniably, in a deal of good in his community, is Noah Barnhisel, who was born on the farm he now operates and owns, on November 4, 1863. Mr. Barnhisel is the son of Cornelius and the grandson of Jacob Barnhisel, while his mother was Elizabeth (Hoffman) Barnhisel.

In 1852 Cornelius Barnhisel brought his family to Miami county and settled on the farm now the home of the subject. He entered the Union army in 1864, and died in the service. His body was interred at Washington, D.C., and it was not until this year that the subject was able to locate the grave of the fallen soldier. Mr. Barnhisel was a member of Company G, Fifty-ninth Indiana Regiment, and during his life time was an active member of the Evangelical church. After the death of the father and husband, Mrs. Barnhisel and her older sons carried on the work of the farm, and there continued to reside. In more recent years the subject came into ownership of the place, and he has done much in the way of improving the old home and bringing it up to a productive and highly creditable state such as it now enjoys. All the present fine buildings were built by him since he came into ownership, with the exception of the barn, which the mother and elder sons built some years back. The place is attractive in appearance, and has a well kept appearance that lends an air of prosperity and good business management that is found to be present upon a closer inspection of the farm. Its two hundred and thirty acres are all under cultivation and yield abundantly to the master touch of the owner.

Mr. Barnhisel was married on May 3, 1885, to Miss Mary Kramer the daughter of Andrew and Susanne (Richebank) Kramer. One son was born to Mr. and Mrs. Barnhisel, Jesse W., who married Blanche Sidner, and they have a son who is named Doine Richard Barnhisel. The family are members of the Evangelical church, and Mr. Barnhisel is especially active and prominent in the work of the church. He has been a class leader for sixteen years, and has taught in the Sunday school for twenty-four years past, a service that has done much to aid in the development of the young minds of the community in the better ways of life and living. In his civic activities, he has demonstrated his high character as a citizen, and has served as a justice of the peace during one term. Although he has not been a man to seek public office, his influence in the community has had an undeniably excellent effect, and has been felt in local politics, as well as in other circles in the community. He and his family enjoy the unlimited confidence and esteem of a wide circle of friends in the community, where they are well known for the many excellent qualities that dominate their lives. The estate of Mr. and Mrs. Barnhisel is known as "Oak Grove Farm".
