HUGH CALDWELL. farmer; P. O. Plymouth: was born in Richland Co., Ohio. January, 1835. He is a son of Thomas and Mary (Miller) Caldwell, who were parents of nine children-George, Elizabeth, James, Hugh, Susanna, Hannah, Catharine, William, and one that died in infancy. Our subject was reared on a farm, and farming has always been his chosen occupation. He was married Nov. 5, 1857, to Elizabeth Bevier, and by her had five children- Florence. William, Franklin, John and one that died without namie. Florence is dead: the balance of the children are living at home with their parents. Mr. Caldwell was in Company B, 60th O. V. I., in the late war, where he served his country with distinction. He was in quite a number of noted engagements. and among them might be mentioned Petersburg, the battle of the Wilderness, and others. It was in the army that Mr Caldwell was taken with the measles. Not having proper care, they settled on his lungs and to-day he is a mere wreck of the robust soldier he was when he enlisted in February 1863. Mr. Caldwell is a member of the Church of God, and a Republican in politics. He owns 29 3/4; acres of land, is well known, and a good and useful citizen in the township.
