Biographical Sketch of James B. Trosper

James B. Trosper is the son of John H. and Elizabeth E. Trosper, the latter being a daughter of Benedict and Charity Weldon, and born in Missouri, March 10, 1826, where she grew up and was educated, and married Mr. Trosper, July 9, 1846. They were the parents of five children, named James B., Mary C., Charity E., Elijah T., and an unnamed infant, all of whom are dead except the first two mentioned.

James B. Trosper was born in this county, January 25, 1855, and here received his education. He began life as a farmer, and is still engaged in that essential calling. He now owns a farm of 320 acres of excellent land, well located in Harrison township, on which he has good improvements. Mr. Trosper’s father, who died February 17, 1872, was a man highly honored by all who knew him, having been a kind husband and affectionate father. In him, the county lost a valuable citizen and his family a noble protector.
