SAMUEL STIVER, farmer, P. O. Germantown. Among the most worthy and
prominent farmers of German Township Samuel Stiver holds a leading place.
In
1806, his parents, John and Margaret (Wolf) Stiver, natives respectively
of
Lancaster and Toffin Counties, Penn., left their native State and came to

Montgomery County, Ohio, settling in German Township, in the southwest
part
of the county. John was of Holland Dutch descent, his ancestors having
come
to the colonies before the Revolutionary war. He and wife lived and died
in
this county. The subject of this sketch was born in Montgomery County,
Ohio,
February 21, 1816, here grew to maturity, inured to the trials that fell
to
the lot of every pioneer family, and March 4, 1841, was married to
Catherine
Emerick, daughter of George and Mary (Good) Emerick, the former of whom
was a
native of Maryland and the latter of Virginia. Mrs. Stiver was born in
this
county October 7, 1819, and has had six children, as follows: Benjamin
M.,
William C., Samuel, Mary E., John A., and Sarah C., all of whom are
married
and have families, excepting John A., who resides at home with his
parents.
Mr. Stiver owns over five hundred acres of land, three hundred and
forty-six
in German and one hundred and sixty-four in Jackson Township; has always
been
recognized as a good, successful farmer, who looks carefully after his
business and seldom makes mistakes in his investments. He is
conservative
and close in his views, a good neighbor, kind yet economical in his
family,
and can be safely classed as one of the representative farmers of the
township.
