Noah Hershberger was born in Virginia, December 4, 1817. His parents moved to Ohio when he was fifteen years old and there the family lived until the summer of 1839. They then moved to this State, settling in Daviess county, where the subject of this sketch has ever since resided. On starting in life for himself, Mr. Hershberger began farming, and has become a large farmer and stock-raiser. He owns a farm of 400 acres in Harrison township, which is as desirably located as any in that section. He was married, in Daviess county, in October, 1847, to Miss Eliza Trosper, a native of Kentucky. Eight children have resulted from this union, five of whom still survive.
