Not my family line, just sharing.
The following Biographical sketch was copied from the book "HISTORY AND BIOGRAPHY COUNTIES OF WHITE AND PULASKI, INDIANA. Historical and Biographical. Illustrated. Chicago; F.A. Battey & Co., Publishers. 1883.
page 715, Indian Creek Township, Pulaski County, Indiana.
"S. A. MARCH was born in this county February 11, 1856, and is the eldest of the seven children of JACOB and MARY (GOOD) MARCH, natives respectively of Pennsylvania and Ohio. JACOB MARCH, at the age of twelve, came to this county with his parents, and was here married in about 1854. He then bought eighty acres of land in this township, built a log house and developed a farm, to which he has since added from time to time, until it now comprises 240 acres, all well-improved. Both he and wife are members of the German Reformed Church. S. A. MARCH received a fair common school education in his youth, and was subsequently engaged in teaching and assisting his father, until December, 1879. He then engaged in general merchandising at Pulaski, in company with M. B. CRIST, under the firm name of CRIST & MARCH. The firm is quite successful, doing a business of $12,000 per annum. In politics, MR. MARCH is a Democrat, and he is a rising young business man."
