SAMUEL M. DORSEY, who is very capably managing his mother's farm of 160 acres of valuable land, which lies in Green township, Shelby county, O., belongs to one of the old families of this section. He was born in Green township, October 26, l868, and is a son of Snowden T. and Anna M. (Mathers) Dorsey. His father died in 1894, one-half mile east of the old Dorsey homestead where he was born in 1825.
In the public schools Samuel M. Dorsey secured his early educational training and later pursued higher branches at Lebanon, O. For two years afterward he taught school and as an educator fulfilled every expectation but as a business, agriculture made closer appeals to him and for many years he devoted himself to farming and stock raising. He is connected at Sidney with the Odd Fellows and the Knights of the Golden Eagle, and he belongs also to the Presbyterian church at Sidney. In politics he early identified himself with the republican party and has served in the office of township clerk.
