Biography of John Bittle

JOHN BITTLE. No branch of commercial enterprise in Cleburne County, Arkansas, is more important or more representative in character than that of the merchant, and John Bittle is one of the leaders in this line in Heber. He was born in what is now Cleburne County in 1863, a son of Levi and Nancy (Huie) Bittle, who came to this State from Tennessee some time in the forties and located near Shiloh in the Little Red River bottom, the agricultural possibilities of which they were the first to discover. On this farm the father was called from life in 1872, at the age of sixty years, the mother’s death occurring when the subject of this sketch was a child. They were worthy members of the Presbyterian Church, and in that faith reared their children, of whom six survive out of a family of nine, and all are residents of Cleburne County.
