Mr. A. was born in Augusta County, VA., October 5, 1825. He was the son of Peter and Elizabeth Airhart. Henry came to Jackson Township, Boone County, in the fall of 1834, where he has ever since resided, and where he owns a fine farm and enjoys the confidence of the people he has so long lived among. He has served three terms as Township Trustee, to the entire satisfaction of the people. By trade he is a carpenter, but by choice has spent most of his time on the farm. Henry is one of fourteen children who came to this county, seven of whom are now living, and seven have joined the silent majority with their parents. Peter Airhart died in February, 1857. Henry was married to Rhody M. Beck in April, 1846. One child was born to them. Mrs. A. died January 15, 1850, when he again married Miss Mary M. Golliday in January, 1856.

Airhart, resides at home; Adia R., married to Walter W. Cones; Loretta A., married to J. C. Ashly; Lora, deceased.
