FRANK J. BORCHERS, whose valuable farm of 160 acres lies in section 26, Cynthian township, is one of the enterprising and prosperous young agriculturists of this section. He was born November 12, 1887, in McLean township, Shelby county, one and one-quarter miles southwest of Fort Loramie, O., where his people were well-known old settlers.
Frank J. Borchers attended school in the Berlin Special School District and then turned his attention to agricultural pursuits. In the spring of 1911, he came to his present farm where he has thirty acres yet in timber, but all the rest is well drained and sufficiently tiled, while Mr. Borchers has put the buildings in excellent repair. He carries on mixed farming and all his industries are flourishing.
Mr. Borchers was married to Miss Emma Boerger, a daughter of Henry Boerger, a former resident of McLean township, and they have one daughter, Freda. Mr. and Mrs. Borchers are members of the Catholic church at Newport, O., which town is situated two and one-half miles east of their farm. Mr. Borchers votes the democratic ticket in both local and national elections.
