WILLIAM H. MOWERY.
Among the agriculturists of Harrison township, Henry county, who have attained success from a financial point of
view, is the gentleman whose name introduces this sketch.
Mr. Mowery is one of the most progressive and energetic farmers of his community, is a complete master of the calling
which he is following, and today his fine farm of one hundred and twenty acres is under excellent cultivation and
well improved. Upon the place he has erected good and substantial buildings, including a comfortable residence,
where hospitality and good cheer reign supreme.
Our subject was born June 26, 1848, in Pickaway county, Ohio, and in the order of birth is fourth child in a family
of eight children, four sons and four daughters, whose parents were Samuel and Elizabeth (Gensel) Mowery. The first
twelve years of his life he passed in the county of his nativity, and then accompanied his parents on their removal
to Allen county, Ohio, where the father's death occurred. The mother is still living.
William H. Mowery continued a resident of Allen county until he was married, December 5, 1871, to Miss Martha K.
Spangler, a native of Pickaway county, and a daughter of Levi Spangler, late of Harrison township, Henry county.
Two children grace this union Mamie and Nona. After his marriage, Mr. Mowery came to Henry county, and in Harrison
township has since successfully engaged in farming. He is held in high regard by all who know him, and his sterling
integrity and honorable, upright manhood, fully entitled him to the position which he holds in the estimation of
the people of the community.
