LEVI ZEARING, farmer, P. O. Germantown. The parents of this
gentleman
were Peter Zearing and Elizabeth Boombrake, who were married in 1816.
The
former was born in Lebanon County, Penn., in 1790, and in 1818 came to
Ohio,
and in two years later settled in Section 6, German Township of this
county,
where he died August 8, 1858, in his sixty-fifth year, the mother having
lived until April 29, 1862, when she died at the age of seventy-three
years.
Our subject was born on the homestead June 15, 1819, where he has since
resided and been occupied as a farmer. He was united in marriage with
Ann
Maria, daughter of Barnet and Elizabeth Zearing, February 5, 1846. She
was
born in Warren County, November 13, 1824. To this couple was born one
son,
Amos, who married Mary Hildreth, and is the father of four children by
name,
Oscar, Eva May, Willie A. and Levi E. Our subject possesses two
well-improved farms; the homestead contains 162 acres, valued at $125 per

acre. Everything thereon is kept in perfect order; the barn is large and

commodious, and on the land is an extensive sugar camp of about 800 or
1,000
trees; the other farm contains 155 acres, situated about three miles
south of
Germantown. The homestead is reasonably well stocked, and supplied with
all
modern farming implements.
