EDMOND THROCKMORTON, farmer; P. O. Waynesville; born in Warren County May 27, 1817; is a son of James and Leah Throckmorton, natives of New Jersey. The grandparents were Job and Jane Throckmorton, also natives of New Jersey, who, with their family, emigrated to Ohio and located in this township in 1816, where they lived and died. Jane was a daughter of Amos Wooley, a native of New Jersey, who came to Ohio in 1816, and died in Clear Creek Township. The maternal grandfather, Joseph Tucker, was also a native of New Jersey, and lived and died in his native State. James, the father of our subject, grew to manhood and married in New Jersey, where he resided till 1816, when, with his father, he came to Ohio and spent the balance of his life in Warren County, except five years' residence in Miami Co., Ohio. He died in Clear Creek Township June 28, 1872, aged 76 years; his wife died Oct. 24, 1866, aged 70. They had ten children; nine still survive - Edmond, John, Jane, Job, Joseph, Susan, James, Lydia and Martha. Our subject, who was born in this county, has, with the exception of the five years' residence in Miami County with his father, passed his entire life within three miles of his birthplace; was married, April 11, 1849, to Eliza, daughter of George S. and Jane Keever, he a native of Pennsylvania and she of Kentucky. Mr. Keever came to Ohio and settled in 1801; was married here and was among the early pioneers of this county, and lived and died here. For further history of the Keever family, see sketch of N. E. Lupton. By this union, Mr. Throckmorton and wife had four chiidren; [sic] two now survive - John and Eliza Jane; the latter married William H. Henry, by whom she has three children - Ellanora, Elsworth and Viola May. Mrs. Throckmorton died Sept 28, 1848, aged 34 years. On Oct. 20, 1850, he married for his second wife, Belinda Keever, a sister of his first wife. She died Feb. 5, 1879, aged 72 years. Mr. T.'s oldest son, Absalom, enlisted in the rebellion, Aug. 14, 1862, in the 79th O. V. I.., and died Jan. 6, 1863, in the hospital at Gallatin, Tenn., with the measles. Mr. Throckmorton has made farm-

ing his business through life. He, as were his ancestors before him, is a man of unassuming habits, never held or desired office, but is one of the best of citizens, kind and accommodating as a neighbor, and whose integrity of character is above reproach.
