PORTRAIT AND BIOGRAPHICAL ALBUM

pg 726, 729

JOSEPH F. CRABILL. A pleasantly located and valuable piece of property, comprising two hundred and thirteen acres in Clark County, forms the home farm of the above-named gentleman. The estate is located on section 15, Springfield, Township, and is the old homestead of the late Thomas V. CRABILL, the father of our subject.

The natal day of the subject of this sketch was February 1, 1859, and his birthplace the farm that is still his home. He is the youngest member of his father's family. He received a common-school education, which in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and in the Buckeye State, includes a thorough understanding of all necessary branches. Having determined to adopt an agricultural career, he has taken advantage of every opportunity to perfect himself in his chosen calling, the result being that although young, he ranks among the best farmers and stock-raisers of the county.

At the home of the bride, in Springfield, December 2, 1884, the rites of wedlock were celebrated between our subject and Miss Mary J. SMITH. The intelligent and estimable bride was born in Yellow Springs, Greene County, and is a daughter of A. J. and Rachel SMITH. Her graces of mind and manners, and her womanly habits make home attractive, and prove the wisdom of Mr. CRABILL'S choice. The union has been blessed by the birth of one child-Glenna L.

Mr. CRABILL take considerable interest in educational affairs, as he does in other objects that will tend to improve or elevate the people and their material interests. In politics he is a Republican. His manners are cordial and genial, favorably impressing those whom he meets, and a further acquaintance proves him to be honorable, energetic and reliable.
