Biography in "HCC 1881" in Jefferson Twp section p1007 "W. R. VAN VOORHIS, farmer: P. O. North Robinson. The subject of this sketch was born in Dutchess Co., N. Y., May 25, 1802, the son of Samuel and Sarah (Myers) Van Voorhis, who were natives of the same county in New York. Mr. Van Voorhis came to Crawford County with his parents in 1821. They left New York for Washington Co., Penn., where they resided until they carne to Crawford County. They settled in Whetstone Township, where the parents died. The father died in 1856, and the mother in 1850. When they came to the county it was almost all unbroken wilderness and the land they entered at that time had to be cleared before they could raise the necessaries of life, and of course they saw many hard time and endured many privations, before they got their land under cultivation. Mr. Van Voorhis was 19 years of age when he came to the county, and he has noted the wonderful change that has been made in the county since he first knew it. He has been married twice. His first marriage was in 1824, to Hannah Jones, who was born in Wayne Co., Ohio and came to Crawford County with her parents in 1821. From this marriage there were seven children, two of whom are now dead. Hiram N., Daniel, Abraham, Sarah, Rebecca J., Catharine, and one died in infancy. The mother of these children died in 1841. About the year 1836, Mr. Van Voorhis went to Michigan, where he resided until 1841, when he returned to Crawford County and remained until 1860, when he again left, this time going to Wood Co., Ohio, where he resided until 1877, and returned to Crawford County again. He yet lives here, and expects to spend the balance of his days here. In 1842, he married his second wife, Almeda (Johnston) Warden, widow of Benjamin Warden, who died in 1840; he was a native of Harrison Co., Ohio, as also was she. They came to Crawford County in 1821, having two children - Nathan C. and Benjamin F. Ten children were born to Mr. Van Voorhis by his last marriage, two of whom are dead - Amanda, James M., Mary, Eliza, Geo. S., Martha, Isaac M., John R., Alice and Albert. Mr. Van Voorhis began business for himself without the aid of any one and made all he has by hard work and economy. He had one son, John M., and his two step-sons, Nathan C. and Benjamin F. (Warden) in the late war. all of whom lived to return home. Mr. Van Voorhis and wife are members of the Disciples Church."
