Adam Nebbergall, is a son of Henry Nebbergall, and was born in Huntington Township, Ross County, Ohio, on the 20th of September, 1819. Here he was raised, and married to Miss Eliza Parrott, April 8, 1844. Immediately after the marriage, the young couple removed to this county, locating near his present farm. His worldly possessions were few; by industry and good management, however, he has accumulated a farm containing three hundred and twenty-five acres, well improved, and situated on the Good Hope and Lyndon pike, one mile east of Good Hope. He and wife have been blessed by the birth of three children: Joseph, Sarah Ann, and Mary Emily ; the former two deceased, and the latter married to Emmet D. King.
Our subject, and his estimable family, are members of the Presbyterian Church; he united with the church in 1843, his wife in about 1836. Some twenty years ago, he was appointed to the office of elder, and still holds the position. He never aspired to any public office, believing that the farmer should devote his time to the cultivation of his lands. He assisted in repelling Morgan's forces, and compelling them to leave the state. He was a Whig until the birth of the Republican party, when he affiliated with it, and is still an active member of the party. His mother died at his birth, and his father soon followed her to the grave; hence he knew but little of them, except that they were natives of Virginia.
