    who carries on general farming and stock raising in Green township, has spent almost all his life on the homestead, which he is operating for his mother, who is a highly esteemed resident of Fletcher, O. Mr. Wilson was born at Covington, Miami county, O., and was two years old when his parents, Joshua and Lydia (Brown) Wilson, came to this property. The father was a native of Montgomery county, O., and after coming to Green township placed all the improvements on this farm, on which he continued to live as long as active, moving then to Fletcher, where his death occurred at the age of seventy years. Both his sons, L. C. and Stanley, are farmers in Green township. L. C. Wilson and brother attended the district schools in Green township and assisted on the home farm of 126 acres, after which he operated the same for six years and since his father's death has continued its management in his mother's interest. He owns 137 acres just north of this farm but he has rented it to a good tenant and continues to live on the old homestead. Mr. Wilson married Miss Anna Bennett and they have four children: Foster, Ethel, Lowell and Edith. Being an independent thinker, Mr. Wilson has not identified himself with any political faction and casts his vote as a free American citizen, entirely according to his own Judgment after intelligent consideration of public issues. All local matters of public concern receive his attention and the public schools and their advancement particularly interest him.
