VAN HYNING, JULIUS, Napoleon, one of the early and prominent settlers of Henry county was born in Summit county, O., in 1822, and in 1848 came to Napoleon and purchased his present farm of 160 acres of canal land at two dollars and a half cent per acre, and received his title from the State. He was married in 1843 to SARAH WILLIARD of Summit county, and settled on his farm, cutting a wagon road from there to Napoleon, and erected his log house, where they commenced their home life. They have had a family of six children: HENRY, OLLIE, HENRIETTA, CHARLES, CLARA and LILLIE. Mr. VAN HYNING enlisted in Co.
