MARTIN F. DENMAN, whose own farm of ninety-five and one-half acres is located in Green township, Shelby county, O., eight miles southeast of Sidney, O., also operates his wife's farm of fifty-seven acres in the same vicinity. He was born on his present farm, September 9, 1863, and is a son of Moses and Barbara (Hauser) Denman.
Moses Denman was born in Miami county, O., near Piqua, and was twenty-one years old when he came to Shelby county and settled on the farm in Green township on which his entire subsequent life was spent, his death occurring here, when he was aged eighty-two years. He married Barbara Hauser and she became the mother of five children, passing away in her sixty-sixth year. Two of these survive: Martin F. and Mrs. Harvey Millhouse.
Martin F. Denman obtained a public school of training and is one of the well-informed and substantial citizens of this section where he has engaged in farming and stock raising ever since reaching man's estate. He has kept up repairs but has had no buildings to erect as his father had made all improvements. Mr. Denman married Miss Abigail W. Grosvenor, and they have three children: Araminta, Delia and Harry. Mr. Denman and family are members and supporters of the Christian church. In politics he is a democrat.
