    who is very efficiently serving Shelby county in a public capacity,
being a member of the board of county commissioners, first elected to
this representative body in the fall of 1910, was born on a farm in
Pickaway county, O., February 9. 1864, a son of Christian and Rachel
(Kah) Stangel. The parents of Mr. Stangel moved to a farm in Jackson
township, Shelby county, in 1866, and he comes that near to being a
native of the county in which he has lived ever since. The father
died in Jackson township and the son was eight years old when his
mother lemoved with him to Sidney, where he attended school for six
years. He then started out to be self supporting and worked at first
on a farm in Franklin township, but after his marriage entered the
Sidney Wheel Works at Sidney, where he continued until 1892, when he
moved on a farm of 120 acres, situated in Franklin township, where he
successfully carries on the usual farm industries. In 1888 Mr.
Stangel was married at Anna Station, ., to Miss Anna Brideweser, a
daughter of Philip Brideweser, at that time a substantial farmer of
that section, and the following children have been bom to Mr. and
Mrs. Stangel: Lawrence, Wallace, Perry, Maud, Luella, Carrie. Glenna,
and Roy Wilson, the last named born October 25, 1912. Mr. Stangel has
always been an interested citizen of his neighborhood but has never
been unduly anxious to hold office, in fact never accepted but one
political position prior to his first election as a county
commissioner, that being assessor of Franklin township, in which
office he had served for two years when he resigned in order to
accept his present one. Mr. Stangel was honored by re-election to the
office of county commissioner, in 1912, and hence will continue his
public service through a second term.
