     whose fine farm of 170 acres is situated one and three-fourth miles northwest of Kettlersville, in a desirable section of Van Buren township, is a well known and highly respected citizen. He was born October 4, 1855, in German township, Auglaize county, O., and is a son of J. D. and Sophia (Neiter) Quellhorst.
     The parents of Mr. Quellhorst were born in Germany and both came to the United States in their youth and were residents of New Bremen, O.  A family of ten children was born to them and named as follows: Henry, Mary, Herman, Anna, Ferdinand, J. Henry, Minnie, Deidrick, William and Caroline. Herman married Minnie Egbert and they live in Van Buren township and have had two children, Sophia and Anna, the latter deceased; Anna, who is deceased, was the wife of Harmon Ollerman; Minnie, who is deceased, was the wife of F. C. Roettger; William, who is a resident of Kettlersville, married Henrietta Bartenstein; and Caroline is the wife of J. F. Roettger and they live in Van Buren township. The others, with the exception of J. Herry, are deceased.
     J. Henry Quellhorst obtained a district school education and farming and stock raising have been his business and occupation ever since. He inherited all but forty acres of his valuable farm, purchasing that tract, but has made all the improvements here and they are of a very substantial character. Mr. Quellhorst is a democrat in his political views and naturally takes pride in the great success of his party in the election of 1912. He belongs to the Evangelical church at Kettlersville, O. Mr. Quellhorst has never married.
