Henry Moomaw, farmer and stock raiser, was born in Ross County, Ohio, April 21, 1825, and is of German descent, his grandfather Moomaw having immigrated to Pennsylvania from Germany in an early day. His father, Henry, was born and reared in Virginia, and when a young man went to Ohio, where he married Annie Gray. She was born in Pennsylvania, and her father, John Gray, was a native of Scotland. After his marriage Mr. Moomaw farmed in Ross County, Ohio, until his death, October 25, 1869. Our subject lived with his father until nineteen years of age, and then learned the blacksmith's trade at Greenfield, Highland Co., Ohio. After serving three years' apprenticeship he remained there several years, and then worked about eight years in London, Madison Co., Ohio, after which he farmed upon the home place in Ross County four years subsequent to his father's death. In 1877 he immigrated to Arkansas, buying his present place. He owns 200 acres of land, about seventy of which are under cultivation and well improved, with good buildings and a nice fruit orchard of two acres. On 120 acres of his land is a coal vein of from twenty-two to twenty-seven inches in thickness, and the coal is pronounced by judges to be of fine quality. Some iron ore has also been discovered upon the place. In 1884 Mr. Moomaw was elected justice of the peace, and as such served one term. While in Ross County, Ohio, he was married, July 18, 1850, to Susan A. Clavenger, daughter of Enos Clavenger, of Virginia, who served in the War of 1812. Mrs. Moomaw's mother was a Miss Martin, and she was reared in Kentucky. Mrs. Moomaw was reared in Clinton County, Ohio, and is now the mother of six children: Ellen (wife of Edward Huey), Cynthia E. (wife of William Mann), Augustus A. (of Logan County), Mary E. (a widow), Ann (wife of Henry Huddleston) and Henry E. (who is married and resides on the home place). Mr. and Mrs. Moomaw belong to the Cumberland Presbyterian Church, and the former is a Royal Arch Mason.
