From the "History of Woods Co. Ohio"

H. N. VAN VOORHIS, a successful farmer of Montgomery township, was born September 25, 1825, in the township of Whetstone, Crawford Co., Ohio, and is the son of William and Hannah (Jones) Van Voorhis. The great-grandfather of our subject was born in Holland, and H. N. is of the fourth generation in the United States. William Van Voorhis, the father of our subject, was a farmer in Crawford county, where he and his family were early pioneers.

Mr. Van Voorhis is the oldest male representative of his family in Ohio. He did not receive over six months' schooling altogether. In 1836, when he was ten years old, his parents moved to Michigan, passing en route through Wood county, and along the "Old Stone Road." They were three days going, from Fremont, Ohio, to Perrysburg, as the road was very bad and swampy, and they spent four years in St. Joseph and Cass counties, Mich. Mr. Van Voorhis lived with his parents until he was between twenty-three and twenty-four years old, with the exception of one year, during which he was learning the harness-making trade at' Bucyrus. He taught school for four or five terms in Knox and Crawford counties, receiving for the first term $8 per month, and " boarding round "; his highest salary was $14 per month, without board. Mr. Van Voorhis was married in Crawford county, March 15, 1849, to Miss Sarah Beck, who was born near New Lisbon, Columbiana county, February 26, 1831, a daughter of Henry and Rachel (Roselle) Beck, both of whom were from New Jersey. When our subject was married he did not have a dollar; but he rented a small log house in Olentangy, Crawford county, for which he paid $12 per year, and his wife's parents gave them furniture with which to go to housekeeping. Later Mr. Van Voorhis bought two lots in the village, whereon he built a hewed-log house, and for seven years lived there, occupied in making shingles from rough timber, and teaching school. In the spring of 1858 he rented a farm in Morrow county, living there until the fall of the same year, when he returned to Whetstone township, bought ten acres of timbered land, and, moving an old hose onto it, lived there until he came to Wood county, April 10, 1866. He located in Section 20, Montgomery township, buying forty acres, for which he went into debt $1,100. After remaining there one year, he sold the farm at cost, and moved to Scott township, Sandusky county, bought thirty-seven acres, and after one year's residence there, removed to Section 7, Montgomery township, where he bought ninety-eight acres, for which he contracted a debt of $1,200. An old log house and a barn were the only buildings on the place, and this was his home until 1880, when he built the excellent brick house which now stands on the farm. On November 14, 1895, Mr. Van Voorhis moved to Prairie Depot, where he now resides in his house on North Center street.

The children of Mr. and Mrs. Van Voorhis were as follows: Augustus, born February 12, 1850, is a farmer of Portage township; George H., born August 27, 1851, died in Portage township; Augusta J., born August 22, 1853, is now Mrs. Joseph J. Harris, of Perry county, Ill.; David C., born August 14, 1856, is a resident of Bowling Green; Owen, born March 21, 1859, died in infancy; Isaac, born November 8, 1861, is a farmer in Portage township; Frank, born September 13, 1868, follows farming in Montgomery township; Seretta, born February 23, 1871, is now Mrs. George Histe, of Portage village; Orrin, born September 9, 1877, died in infancy. Mr. Van Voorhis is a Democrat, served as township clerk in Crawford county, and was trustee for several terms in Montgomery township. He and his wife are members of the Deciples Church. He is a self-made man, and by industry and economy has acquired a comfortable amount of this world's goods.
