GIDEON E. SCROOGES was born in Putnam County, Ind., August 15, 1832, and is the youngest of the six children born to David and Margaret (Delzell) Scrooges, natives of North Carolina and Tennessee. The family came to this county about the year 1836, and here Gideon E. was reared to farming, and educated at the subscription schools. In 1856, he married Miss Margaret Beard, who was born in Greene County, Ohio, January 20, 1832, the daughter of Thomas and Sarah (Currie,) Beard, natives of Pennsylvania and Virginia. Mr. Beard came to Cass County, this State, in 1886, and thence to this township in 1840, locating on the farm where Mr. Scrooges now lives, and here died September 24, 1853 ; his widow yet survives him at the age of eighty-four years, March 17, 1883. From this marriage until the fall of 1861, Mr. Scrooges resided in Union Township: he then moved to the farm on which he now lives. He and wife are members of the United Presbyterian Church at Idaville.
