I found this on RootsWeb WorldConnect project: "1882 History LaGrange County, Indiana" by F.A.Battey & Co., - Milford Township ? DANIEL WERT was born in Stark County, Ohio, November 18, 1828. His father, Jacob Wert, was born in 1799 in Pennsylvania, and came to Ohio with his parents in 1804; thence to this State in 1852, where he has since lived. He is now with Daniel, his second son, and is eighty-two years old. His first wife, the subject's mother, died June 5, 1868; her maiden name was Susanna Baum; she was born in Ohio in 1807; his second wife - Elizabeth Walker, a native of Ohio - is now visiting in the West. Daniel Wert commenced working by the month when about twenty-one years old, and, after he had accumulated $325, came to Indiana in 1853, and located in De Kalb County. He returned to Ohio the following spring, and was married March 19, 1854,to Eliza Miller; they then returned to Indiana, where Mr. Wert for about two years ran a saw-mill; then some eight months worked in a mill near Goshen in Elkhart County; then came to this township and settled on his fine farm of 340 acres, where he has remained, and has been operating the first saw-mill built in the township. He spent about twelve years dressing and fulling cloth. When only six years old, with his brother, aged eight, he took charge of a saw-mill, and of a carding-machine part of the time; he has property now, valued at about $21,000. Mr. Wert is a Democrat, and a worthy and prosperous citizen. His wife was born in Green Town, Summit County, Ohio, July 16, 1835; her parents were Benjamin and Margaret A. (Diffenderfer) Miller, natives of Pennsylvania and of German ancestry. Mr. and Mrs. Wert have had seven children - Mary (deceased), Lucinda, Isaac, Emma (deceased), Horace (deceased), Carrie and Dallas. Lucinda married Cyrus Wright.
