ASA WINTER.
There is nothing more interesting than the biography of men who by their natural ability and energy have won from Dame Fortune her smiles, and in helping themselves so capably are of great benefit to the communities in which they reside. It is always a pleasure to represent such men in the pages of our Album which is read by the best class of men and women all over the country. The subject of our sketch, Asa Winter, was the third in number of the ten children born to Williard O. and Rachel (Higgins) Winter. His birth occurred in Highland County, Ohio, September 8, 1844, and there he passed his youth and attended school and received a fair education in spite of the fact that all schools at that time were without the mental training that they possess fit the present date. Mr. Winter came to Pike County in 1865 and two years later, on the 21st of March, was married in Highland County to Miss Mary J. Morris, daughter of Pierson and Eliza (Shields) Morris, natives of Ohio. She was born in Clinton County, Ohio, May 20, 1846, and after one year passed in Pike County they removed to her native place where our subject engaged in farming for a little more than a year. At the expiration of that time they returned to Pike County. In 1872 he removed to Carroll County, Mo., where he engaged in farming and teaching for a period of two years, but at the end of that time returned once more to Pike County and has continued to make it his home up to the present writing. He is the owner of one hundred and twenty acres of fine land and is a number one farmer, taking great pride in his occupation and giving much careful attention to the cultivation of his estate. Mr. and Mrs. Winter are the happy parents of four children, viz.: Othello W., Nettie E., Truman E., Walter C., and it would be difficult to picture a more contented and industrious family than that of our subject. His wife is a faithful Christian and an active member of the Christian Church, and our subject is Elder of the same. He also takes great interest in Sunday-school work, and was at one time Superintendent of the Sunday-school. The subject of our sketch is a prominent and popular man in this township, a fact clearly proven by his being called upon at various times to fill offices of public trust. He was elected Supervisor of Newburg Township six or seven times, and was Township Clerk for many terms. He is a member of the Republican party and much interested in all political issues of the day. Mr. Winter, as an educator, was at one time of great assistance in this community and labored faithfully and well to advance the educational standard of the township. His interest in educational matters continues great and he loses no opportunity of lending his influence in its behalf.
