JOHN A. ESSIG, one of the leading farmers of Jackson township, is a son of Jacob and Madeline (Lind) Essig, both natives of Stark county. By occupation Jacob Essig was a tiller of the soil and as such met with encouraging success, owning at one time tow hundred and eighty acres of land, the greater part of which in now in possession of his descendants. He was a good man and praiseworthy citizen and spent all of his life in the county of Stark, dying about four miles north of Canton in the year 1891. Mrs. Essig became the mother of ten children and departed this life in the month of May, 1901. Of his large family, six are living at the present time, the majority being residents of the county of Stark, well settled in life and useful in their various fields of endeavor.
The birth of John A. Essig occurred in Plain township, Stark county, January 21, 1849, and he spent his early years on the home farm, assisting as soon as old enough with the various duties of the same. Noting of an eventful nature took place to interfere with the even tenor of his life and he grew to maturity with a full appreciation of the responsibilities resting upon him as a citizen of a country where all are given equal opportunities for the exercise of the talents in their possession. His educational training was such as the common schools could impart and he pursued his studies during the years of his minority until obtaining a practical knowledge o the fundamental branches of learning. The father's estate was by no means large enough to afford each of the children a substantial start in life, accordingly the subject on leaving home was obliged to rely upon his own resources for a livelihood. Determined from the out start not to be contented with a passive existence, he at once formed his plans for the future, and sparing no effort within his power to carry them to conclusion, he soon found himself in a condition to realize his hopes of success in a business way. A strong heart and willing hands impelled him to undertake large things in the matter of agriculture and from a modest beginning he steadily forged his way to the front until in due time he came to be looked upon as one of the rising farmers and substantial citizens of the community in which he lived. Purchasing a good farm, he succeeded by industry and good management in adding to its area at intervals until finally he became the owner of three hundred and fifty-three acres of as fertile and well improved land as can be found within the geographical limits of the township.
Mr. Essig has given much careful study to agricultural science and perhaps is as well acquainted with the nature of soils and their adaptability to the grain and vegetable crops of the latitude as any other man in Stark county. He is a modern farmer, using modern methods and modern appliances and the splendid condition of his place as well as the bountiful harvests with which he is every year blessed demonstrate the practical value of his theoretical knowledge of husbandry.
Realizing that no true man lives for selfish ends, Mr. Essig devotes considerable time to public enterprises and as a good citizen takes an active interest in politics, supporting the principles of the Democratic party. He has never asked nor desired official distinction, but deems no reasonable sacrifice too great when working for his friends or laboring to promote the success of the party as a whole. Notwithstanding his indifference to public position, he was elected in 1893 trustee of Jackson township and filled the office three years, retiring not only with an honorable record but also with the universal good will of the people, regardless of party affiliation. In matters religious Mr. Essig has profound convictions and to say that he is an earnest and sincere Christian, whose works and faith go hand in hand, is to state which every body within the range of his acquaintance is only too willing to testify. As a communicant of the Lutheran church, he has been untiring in upholding the cause of Christianity in his neighborhood and the local congregation to which he belongs has benefited greatly not only from his liberal financial support but as much if not more from his wholesome personal influence in inducing other to seek the better life.
Mr. Essig is a married man and the proud father of eight children, who are growing up to honorable manhood and womanhood and giving promise the lives of usefulness in whatever stations they may be called to fill. His wife was formerly Miss Julia Oberlin and the ceremony by which it was changed to the one she now bears was solemnized in the year 1874. The following are the names of the sons and daughters that have come to brighten the home and make glad the lives of these fond parents, to-wit: Henry, Bertha, Etta, John, Lena, Walter, Nancy and William S.
THERE IS ALSO THIS BIOGRAPHY
HIRAM H ESSICK, is a native son of Ohio, having been born in Columbiana county, on the 14th of March, 1856, and being a son of William and Catherine (Hossler) Essick, of whose eleven children ten are living, namely: Abram, who is a resident of Ellsworth county, Kansas; William A. and John M., who likewise reside in that county; Hiram H., who is the immediate subject of this sketch; Charles E., who resides in Columbiana county, Ohio; Anna L., who is the wife of Dr. John J. Chambers, of Alliance, this county; Ella, who is the wife of Benjamin F. Sullivan, of Alliance; George, who is a practicing physician in Wayne county, this state; Katurah, who is the wife of David V. Whiteleather, an attorney of Columbia City, Indiana; and Ida, who is the wife of Fernando S. Pieren, of Knox township, Columbiana county, Ohio. The father of the subject was born in Franklin county, Pennsylvania, in the year 1819, and was reared on a farm and continued to follow agricultural pursuits during his entire life. In 1850 he emigrated with his family to Ohio and located on a farm in West township, Columbiana county, near the line of Stark county, and there he continued to reside until his death, which occurred in 1898. He owned a well improved farm of one hundred and sixty-five acres, and devoted his attention to general agriculture and the raising of high-grade live stock. He was a stalwart Democrat in his political proclivities and was prominent in public affairs of a local nature, having served as township trustee and treasurer and in the offices of trust and responsibility. He was a valued and consistent member of the Lutheran church, as was also his estimable wife, who survived him by about four years, her death occurring in April, 1902.
Hiram H. Essick was reared to maturity on the homestead farm where he was born, and secured an excellent common-school education. Upon attaining his legal majority he assumed the management of the home farm, which he operated on shares up to the time of his marriage, in the year 1881, when he leased a farm tow miles west of the village of New Franklin, in Paris township, Stark county, and here he continued to follow farming as a renter until 1891, when he purchased the place and continued his residence on the same until 1897, when he purchased and removed to his present handsome home, a quarter of a mile south of New Franklin, the same having been formerly the home of his father-in-law and the residence being one of the most spacious and attractive in this section of the county. In this farm, which Mr. Essick purchased of the heirs of the estate, are eighty-eight acres, while in his other farm, which he still retains, are seventy-three acres, both places being operated under his direct supervision. In politics he gives an uncompromising allegiance tot he Democratic party, and at the present time he is president of the board of education of his district, while he is a leading member of the Home Mutual Insurance Company, of Paris and Washington townships, of which he is secretary, proving a most capable and popular executive in the handling of the affairs of this well established and beneficent organization. He and his wife are both earnest and zealous members of the Lutheran church, in which he is an elder, while for the past four years he has done a most helpful and highly appreciated work as superintendent of the Sunday school.
On the 20th of September, 1881, Mr. Essick was united in marriage to Miss Margaret Deppen, who was born in New Franklin, Paris township, being a daughter of the late Andrew Deppen, who was for many years a prominent business man of New Franklin, where he was engaged in the harness and saddler business, while he also conducted his fine farm, lying contiguous to the village. Mr. and Mrs. Essick have one daughter, Edna C., who was born on the 27th of September, 1884.
