Biography in History of Williams Co, OH

JOHN B. GRIM was born in Stark County, Ohio, in 1826, and moved to Pulaski Township, this county, in 1850, thence to Jefferson in May, 1852, where he is now extensively engaged in the poultry business, and is doing a lucrative trade. In 1850, our subject married Miss Janet Cairns in Stark County, Ohio, and to this union have been born five children, viz.: Ellen, Janet, William, Andrew and Charles, all of whom reside with their parents. In November, 1864, Mr. Grim enlisted in the Fifty-fifth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, and participated in the campaigns against Atlanta, Ga., and Columbia, S. C., and was with Sherman in his famous march to the sea. He was honorably mustered out of the service in 1865, when he returned to his home in Williams County. The same year he was elected Treasurer of the county, which position he filled for two successive terms. He also served as County Commissioner from 1870 to 1872, and ably and satisfactorily performed the duties appertaining to each office. He is an ardent Republican, and socially has the respect of all who know him.
