     whose excellent farm of sixty-four acres is situated six and one-half miles southeast of Sidney, Shelby county, O., is a well-known citizen of Orange township, in which he has spent almost all his life. He was born in 1866, in Bond county, Ill., and is a son of Aaron and Elizabeth (Voorhees) Redinbo.
    Aaron Redinbo was born in Shelby county, O., where he attended school, grew to manhood and married and afterward moved to Bond county, Ill. From there he returned to Shelby county and located in Orange township, where his death occurred at the age of seventy-seven years. He married Elizabeth Voorhees, who was also bom in Shelby county. Her death occurred on the present home farm, in 1887, when in her forty-sixth year. They had four children: Anna B., who resides with her brother; C. O., Samuel R., who died young and a babe that died unnamed.
     C. O. Redinbo first attended school in his native state and completed his education in Shelby county. Afterward he assumed the agricultural responsibilities of the home farm and has continued here ever since. An intelligent farmer like Mr. Redinbo finds that Shelby county land can be made very productive and some very fine stock has also been raised on his place and for twelve years he has also grown tobacco.
     Mr. Redinbo married Miss Nora Riley, who was bom in Madison county, Ind.. and they have three children: lona E., who is the wife of A. G. Wheaton; Frank C., who assists his father; and Victorine, who is equally useful to her mother. Mr. Redinbo has been identified with the republican party during his entire political life, but takes no very active part in campaigns, although any local agitation concerning the proper administration of law in order to make this a peaceable neighborhood, finds him wide awake and ready for responsibility.
