SAMUEL D. CRUMBAUGH, one of the well known business men of Sidney, who has been identified with the farm implement trade for the past thirteen years and has been an individual dealer since 1909, was born on a farm in Perry township, Shelby county, O., December 10, 1866, and is a son of Daniel and Naomi (Keplinger) Crumbaugh.
The Crumbaugh family is a pioneer one of Perry township, Grandfather John Crumbaugh securing the present Crumbaugh homestead by entry, at an early day. Daniel Crumbaugh was born on that farm and spent his life there, his death being accidentally caused by a runaway team, in 1899. His wife was also a native of Shelby county, a daughter of Mathias Keplinger, who came here from Clark county.
Samuel D. Crumbaugh remained during his father's lifetime on the home farm and after his death sold the property and entered his present business and was engaged in selling farm implements until he embarked in this line for himself, purchasing the store and stock of Horner Wright. He carries the goods of those standard companies which experience has proved to him as most in demand, having a complete stock of the International Harvester goods and the products of the Weber Wagon Company.
Mr. Crumbaugh was married to Miss Viola Hoover and they have had two children: Harry, who died when aged seven years; and Forrest, who is in the jewelry business with E. E. Kay. Mr. Crumbaugh in his active interest in local public matters follows in the footsteps of his honored father and was appointed to fill out his father's unexpired term as township trustee. In every way he has shown a disposition to be a useful citizen. In early manhood be became identified with the Odd Fellows and his interest in this fraternal organization continues.
