Adam Anglemyer, one of the worthy and honored citizens of Huntington County, and one among the substantial and influential citizens of Huntington Township, is a native of Northampton Co., Pa., born July 27, 1813, being the ninth of ten childrenâ€”four sons and six daughtersâ€”born to Jacob and Elizabeth (Schimmel) Anglemyer, both natives of Pennsylvania, of German descent. When our subject was a child five years old his parents removed to Lebanan Co., PA, and resided in a village known as Jonestown for some two or three years, when they moved to Dauphin Co., PA, and settled upon a farm. There our subject spent his early youth working upon a farm. In 1831 the family came westward to Ohio and located upon a farm in Columbiana County. On the 25th day of December, 1835, Adam Anglemyer was united in marriage to Catharine Leedy, daughter of Jacob and Barbara (Myers) Leedy, natives of Pennsylvania, of German descent. She was born in Columbiana Co., OH, October 23, 1817. In 1837 our subject and his wife removed to Mahoning County, OH where they resided upon a farm until 1852, when they came to this county and located where they now reside in Section 11, Huntington Township. They settled in the woods and a great deal of hard work naturally devolved upon Mr. Anglemyer in clearing up a farm. He chopped, grubbed, rolled logs, burned brush, made rails, and new country necessitates. The course of improvement went on and after a few years of toil the forest was converted into a good farm. His marriage has resulted in the birth of eight children, as follows: Barbara, Jacob, John, David, Adam, Catharine, Samuel and Charley. Of these, Jacob, Catharine, Samuel and Charley are deceased. Our subject and his wife are former members of the German Baptist Church. In politics the former is a Republican. He is an honest, upright man, and he and his wife are among the most highly respected citizens of the county.
