Biography of William H. Mowery
Northwestern Ohio Biographies

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.
