     one of the leading men of Cynthian township, Shelby county, O., who has been clerk of the board of education of the Short special school district for six years and is interested in all matters of public moment in this section, was born September 23, 1876, in Cynthian township, and is the second eldest son of Henry and Mary (Ernst) Hoelscher, and a grandson of Joseph Hoelscher, who was a native of Germany and came from there in 1835. The parents of Mr. Hoelscher reside in Cynthian township on the old family homestead, the same adjoining his own farm, which lies in section 16, two and one-half miles southeast of Fort Loramie, on the north side of the Farmers turnpike road.
    Henry F. Hoelscher was educated in the public schools of Cynthian township and until his marriage he continued to assist his father on the home farm. Afterward he settled and has resided on his present place, where he has a fine property which he purchased from George Short, Sr. He has made all necessary repairs and has done a large amount of improving, including building and remodeling of the different farm structures, has also drained and tiled his land, and here carries on general farming along modern lines.
    Mr. Hoelscher was married to Miss Elizabeth Fleckenstein, who was born in McLean township, Shelby county, a daughter of George and Tracy (Bower) Fleckenstein, and they have three children: Agnes, Helen and Martha. Mr. Hoelscher, like his father and grandfather, is a stanch democrat but has never accepted any political office except one relating to the public schools. The family belongs to St. Michael's Catholic church at Fort Loramie.
