LUTHER BABBITT, Farmer; P. O. Lebanon; was born in the State of Pennsylvania February 11, 1808; he is the son of Jacob and Sarah (Craft) Babbitt, the former a native of New Jersey and the latter of Massachusetts, and both of English descent. They emigrated with their family of ten children to the West in 1817, and located in Warren County, Ohio. Our subject received a good education in the schools of Pennsylvania and Ohio, and early learned the carpenter trade, at which he worked five years; but, preferring the life of a farmer, he gave up his trade and turned his whole attention to farming. He was married in 1840 to Miss Mary W. Duckworth, a native of Warren County, and daughter of George Duckworth, Esq. Of this marriage, two children were born, viz., George and James, the latter being a druggist by profession and the former a farmer. Mr. and Mrs. Babbitt are members of the M. E. Church. He is a Republican in politics, and for ten years was a School Director in his District. He had lived most of his life in Warren County, and is one of the county’s most reliable and trustworthy gentlemen.
