DR. DAVID MASON, physician, Harveysburg, was born in Montgomery Co., Ohio, Sept. 26, 1824. His parents were Richard and Frances (Strickler) Mason, the former a native of Maryland, and the latter of Pennsylvania. They emigrated from the Red Stone country, Pennsylvania, in 1798, and located in Montgomery Co., Ohio. They were parents of twelve children, our subject being the youngest. He was raised on the farm, and attended the district school of his native county. In 1845, he commenced reading medicine with Dr. Sellman, of Shelbyville, Ind. He afterward attended lectures at Payne's University, Philadelphia, Penn., from which he graduated in 1848. He first located in Indiana, and for some years afterward practiced his profession in that State. In 1853, he came to Warren Co., and, after practicing two years in Waynes-

ville, settled in Harveysburg, where he has since remained. In 1844, he married Rachel Gibbons, a native of Preble Co., Ohio, who died in 1856, leaving four children. On the 12th of November, 1869, Mr. Mason took to himself another wife, in the person of Mrs. Edith Edwards, widow of William Edwards, of Warren Co., and a daughter of Thomas and Elizabeth Kumbrough. By this marriage one child has been born, viz., Lewis A., born June 12, 1874. During his residence in Harveysburg, the Doctor has been actively engaged in the practice of his profession.
