Transcribed biography of Daniel Stoner

DANIEL STONER was born in Montgomery County, Ohio, June 4, 1815. His father was a farmer, and he followed in his track. At that period, land being much higher in Ohio than in Indiana, Mr. Stoner came hither in 1840, in order to secure a farm and home in the "Hoosier" State. In common with all early settlers, he had an experience of trials and hardships. On June 15, 1835, he was married, in Ohio to Elizabeth Ludy, born May 23, 1813, from which union there descended eight children, two of whom are deceased. Those living are married and reside in this county. Mrs. Stoner died in November, 1880. Mr. Stoner now owns 255 acres of land, and lives two miles southeast of Valparaiso. In politics, Mr. Stoner is a Democrat. He has been a member of the Valparaiso Presbyterian Church for about twelve years.
