The present efficient clerk of Highland township, Defiance county, F. G. Blue, is a representative of two of the oldest and most highly respected families of Ohio. His parents, Joseph B. and Rachel (Ashton) Blue, were both natives of this State, the former born in Miami county, December 27, 1810, the latter in Brown county, September 18, 1825. At an early day they became residents of Highland township, Defiance county, where the father died in 1883. In their family were three children, namely: Uriah S., Mary E. and Frank G.

A native of Defiance county, Frank G.

In the common schools he began his education, subsequently attending Defiance College, and also taking a special course in civil engineering at the State Normal School, Ada, Ohio. Being well qualified to teach, he has successfully followed that profession in Highland township for sixteen terms, and was also principal of the Ayresville high school for four terms, and is engaged for the coming winter at the same place.

On April 10, 1895, in Highland township, Mr. Blue was united in marriage with Miss Ella Stone, a native of that township, and to them have been born two sons. Rodger H. and Teddy G. As an ardent Republican Mr. Blue has always taken an active part in local political affairs, and in the fall of 1893 he was the candidate of his party for county surveyor of Defiance county. And is now a candidate for the same office this fall.
