"JACOB MARCH was born in Union County, Pennsylvania, March 17, 1829, and was one of the twelve children born to JOHN and CATHERINE (RACER) MARCH (*NOTE this name was spelled REASER for a brother in this volume and elsewhere as REESER *), natives of Pennsylvania, and of German descent. JOHN MARCH was a weaver, was married in Pennsylvania, and in 1837 moved to Seneca County, Ohio, where he remained until the fall of 1840, when he came to this township, entered eighty acres, built a cabin and improved the land, which he increased to 160 acres, and died thereon in 1857. He was one of the Township Trustees under the old constitution, and a member of the German Reformed Church. JACOB MARCH, until twenty-three years old, attended school and assisted his father on the farm, and then he and his brother-in-law farmed on shares for two years. He then bought his present farm of 120 acres in this township, which he has since increased to 217 acres. He was married, February 5, 1854, to MARY A. GOOD, a native of Seneca County, Ohio, who has borne her husband six children, of whom five are yet living. In Politics, MR. MARCH is a Democrat, and both he and wife are members of the German Reformed Church."
