JAMES KINDLE, farmer, P.O. Ada, was born March 10, 1854, in Hardin County, Liberty Township. He is a son of Joshua and Rosana (Derry) Kindle, both natives of Perry County, Ohio and of German and Irish descent. The grandparents on both sides were natives of Virginia. Joshua Kindle, father of our subject, came to Hardin County, when a boy, and followed farming. Our subject received an ordinary education at the common schools, and for his occupation, learned faraming. He is the owner of fifty acres of land on Section 18, in Liberty Township. In 1877, he was married to Eliza Jackson, a daughter of John and Catherine Jackson, of Irish and German descent, who came to this county in 1828. Her father is in good circumstances, and is a prominent farmer near Kenton. Our subject has had three children by this union-Catherine A., Io Maud and Nancy Luetta. Mrs. Kindle is a member of the Baptist Church. Mr. Kindle is a Democrat in politics, and a member of the Grange assocation.
