DANIEL HEWITT, farmer, P.O., Maineville, was born in this township and is a son of William and Catherine (Ertle) Hewitt. He was born in Ireland, and when 11 years old came to this country and located in New Jersey, where he resided until of age, when he removed to Rising Sun, Ind., and soon after enlisted in the War of 1812, and took part in the famous battle of Tippecanoe and other engagements of the war. After its termination he returned to Clermont Co., O., where he was married to Catherine, eldest daughter of Daniel Ertle, and in 1816 settled on land in Survey 4,239, this township. He was a plasterer and mason by trade. He was moderately successful in business. To them were born the following children: Mary Elizabeth, Emaline, Maria, Lena, Kate, Belle, John, Daniel, Benjamin, William and Sophia. He died Feb. 13, 1870, aged 82 years, 10 months, and 7 days. His wife died in 1856, aged 63 years, 4 months and 25 days, having met her death in receiving a kick from a colt. Our subject, at an early age, had to assume control of the management of the farm, as his father was much away from home.
