ISAAC A. MERCHANT, (Claridon Township) (1907) son of John T. and Rebecca A. (Gruber) Merchant, was born in Marion Township May 26, 1844. He received a limited inheritance from his father, to which lie has been adding, until he owns at present 159 acres of excellent land, drained by 1,500 rods of tile. His suitable frame residence was built in 1868, at an expense of $1,500, and his barn and abed in 1874, at a cost of $800. He values his farm at $100 per acre, and is engaged in raising grain and graded stock. May 2, 1864, he enlisted in the war, Company B, One Hundred and Thirty-sixth Regiment Ohio National Guard, and has in his possession a written expression of gratitude for efficient services from President Lincoln. October 24, 1867, he married Miss Frances E. Haines, a daughter of L. C. and Ellen (Bogan) Haines; the former a native of Pennsylvania, and the latter of Virginia.
