REV. R. S. HAGEMAN, minister and farmer; P. O. Camp Hageman. The subject of this sketch was born in the year 1837; he is a son of Henry and Rhoda (Stout) Hageman, who were born in the State of New Jersey; he, April 20, 1798, and she, April 20, 1805. In 1828, with team and wagon they emigrated to Ohio, the journey occupying twenty-one days. They settled in Socialville, Deerfield Township, where they lived twenty-seven years. Although a miller by occupation, he followed farming and operated a saw-mill. In 1858, he removed to Union Township, where he lived till his death, which occurred July 25, 1862. In early life he was a member of the Presbyterian Church, in which he was an Elder; afterward he connected with the M. E. Church, and was a devout and exemplary Christian man. To himself and wife were born ten children, three living- R. S., Hannah and Theodore; the deceased- Joseph, Mary, Harriet, Mary Ann, John, Henry C. and Emma. Our subject was brought up to labor on the farm and in the mill until 19 years old. The rudiments of his education were received in the district schools, which was afterward developed in a course of study in the Farmers’ College, where he prosecuted his studies to within one year of graduating, after which he began teaching and in all taught fifteen years; during this time he was laboring in the ministry, having been licensed to preach the Word of God at the age of 16 years, and at present enjoys the position of Local Elder in the M. E. Church. In 1862, he was married to Minerva, daughter of Charles W. Beedle, of Warren Co., who has borne him two children-Mary M. and Ella F. He owns a farm of 40 acres, which is in a high state of cultivation and comfortably improved.
