  • In 1902 DANIEL L. SOWER.There are men in this life who face death with impunity and win for themselves as grand a name on the field of war in a few vears as they do in the peaceful fields of agriculture in half a lifetime, but happy is the man who secures a reputation in both fields within the span of a quarter of a century, as has done the subject of this sketch. Daniel L. Sower was born on a farm in Morrow county, Ohio, October 27, 1840, and when ten years of age went with his parents to live in Seneca county, Ohio; four years later he went with his father to Gratiot county. Mich., and located within six miles of Ithaca, in Noth Star township, where he lived about five years and then returned to Morrow county, Ohio, remained there two years. and February 26, 1862, enlisted in Company G Forty-ninth Ohio Volunteer Infantry, in which he served three years. He endured the hardships of a soldier's life must manfully, bravely conducted himself in several sanguinary engagements, and under- ment many months of cruel imprisonment with fortitude, if not with patience. At the commencement of his military career Mr. Sower was overcome by fatigue on a long march and fairly gave out near Perryville. Ky. He was captured by the enemy, but was paroled the next day. and the following spring was exchanged, when he rejoined his regiment at Murfreesboro, Tenn. At the battle of Chickamauga he was wounded, was again taken prisoner, and was sent to Richmond. Va., where he was confined in the Pemberton prison for about two months and then sent to Danville, Va. where he was imprisoned five months or longer, and then taken again to Richmond, where he was paroled a few days later and sent to Camp Parole, Md., having suffered about nine months of rebel imprisonment. After being detained at Camp Parole about six weeks he was transferred to Camp Chase, at Columbus. Ohio, where he was held about five months, when he was exchanged and rejoined his regiment at Huntsville, Ala. He took part in the siege of Corinth, after the battle of Shiloh, and was honorably discharged and mustered out at Huntsville, Ala., February 27, 1865. Mr. Sower never had the advantages of a good practical education. Whilst a resident of Michigan he had the honor of attending the pioneer school of the early days of Michigan. The building was erected of hewn logs and 22x28 feet in dimension. It was covered with clapboards or "shakes" and the seats were of split saplings or puncheons. He has witnessed the transformation from the log cabin school-house to the modern school-houses of the twentieth century. He has witnessed threshing done in the good old way, without any separator to clean the grain from the chaff as today. When he and his estimable wife became citizens of Noble county, it was almost a wilderness where their home lies. They resided for years in a humble log cabin and a greater part of their beautiful estate of today was covered with the unbroken forest. Bv perseverance and economy, coupled with determination, they haw toiled early and late and practiced economy, and today, in 1902, they have one of the most beautiful homesteads in the township of Orange. Their beautiful and costly residence was erected in 1887, and besides their large and commodious residence their large barns and out-buildings and well fenced fields, closely kept up. indicate the thrifty farmers. All these years Mr. Sower was ably assisted by his wife, who has nobly and valiantly stood by his side in the building up of their beautiful estate. As a soldier Mr. Sower has a record which he may well feel proud of. He was a prisoner of war at two different times during his term of service, which was of three years duration. His first capture was in the vicinity of Perryville, Ky. He with others of the boys in blue, had been on a long and weary march at the time when General Buell was in pursuit of the rebel General Bragg. His shoes were worn out and when they came to Louisville, Ky., expecting to rest for a time, orders came to proceed to Frankfort, Ky. and while there he with some others purchased each a pair of boots. Mr. Sower's boots being rather tight for him on the weary and long march, had to remove them and carry them and march in his bare feet. Exhaustion was finally the cause of his falling by the wayside, and whilst resting and there recuperating for the tedious march, he was captured by the Rebel cavalry; but was soon paroled, and was forced, with others of his companions, to make his way to Cincinnati, a distance of one hundred miles, and they were forced to beg food of the people as they passed to their destination. His regiment was at the extreme right at Chickamauga when the actions opened on the morning of the first days fight, but was transferred and at noon was in the advance front in the charge. They took two fields of artillery. The second day's action was on Sunday. General Wilich, the commander of their division,made a speech to the soldiers and said : — "Veil, boys, you may expect to have hard fighting to-day, but nut too hard for us." It was about 10 A. M., of this day whilst the regiment was in hot action, each man endeavoring to shield him- self, which was the order given. Mr. Sower was standing behind a small sapling, when just at his side his comrad, Walter T. Colo, was struck down by a minnie ball — Mr. Sower said, "Walter, are you hurt?" No response came and he never saw his comrade again. At this action Mr. Sower received a graze on the right arm, whilst loading his gun — nothing serious. During the afternoon engagement, whilst his regiment was resting on their guns, near one of their silent batteries, Mr. Sower was struck on the left hand and right forefinger with a cannon hall, or a part of a shell, which disabled his left hand and he carries this wound to this day. He was not lit to go onward in the action and was ordered to fall back to an old vacated house, where a number of the wounded and dying were gathered. Whilst there, amid the groans of the dying and wounded Mr. Sower and his guard and a comrade made their way to a neighboring ravine, with as many canteens as they could carry, to obtain water for the poor fellows. They filled the canteens from pools and when they were taken in charge by a rebel squad. He barely, missed the chance by one day of being incarcerated in the terrible Andersonville Prison Pen. His imprisonment in the rebel prison pens was terrible, and no one knows the horrors and ordeals the poor soldiers passed through but those who were really there. All honor is due the noble men who so valiantly defended the flag, and endured the hardships and vicissitudes of a soldiers life, like the subject of this review. It may he added that Mr. Sowers was a teacher in Noble county at the early age of sixteen and also taught the ear previous to his marriage.At the conclusion of this long term of valiant army service, Mr. Sower came to Noble county. Ind., and engaged in carpenter work for about two years; he then rented land in Orange township for a year, when he removed to Gratiot county, Mich., and located on land that he had previously purchased, and on which he resided about eighteen months, when he returned to Orange township. Noble county, Ind., rented land for another year, and then purchased one hundred and five acres of his present homestead, all of which he has cleared up, and to which he has added ninety acres by purchase.
    Mr. Sower is classed among the foremost of the agriculturists of Orange township, and his farm is one of the finest in his part of the county. It is improved with an elegant dwelling that is an ornament to the neighborhood, and his farm-buildings are unsurpassed for convenience and substantial construction, while his fields display a scene that indicates to the most careless observer the direction of a master mind fully imbued with agricultural skill and a knowledge of profitable husbandry.
    July 2, 1868, Mr. Sower contracted a marriage with one of the most amiable and accomplished young ladies of Orange township — Miss Mary S. Keifer, who was born in Morrow county, Ohio, July 2, 1847, and this happy union has been crowned with two children, Corinna and Harry.
    Elias Sower, the father of Daniel L. Sower, was born in York county, Penn., April 5, 1810. was a physician and also a clergyman of the Methodist Episcopal church. He married Margaret Bitner, a highly respected lady and a native of Pennsylvania. To this marriage were born ten children, eight of whom grew to maturity.
    George Keifer, the father of Mr. Mary S. (Keifer) Sower, was born in Long Channel, Germany, May 24, 18 15, and married Mary M. Sower, who was horn in Center county, Pennsylvania, January 19, 1819, and is a descendant of one of the most prominent families of the Keystone state. Mrs. Elias Sower was called away August 1, 1851, but Elias himself survived until September 10, 1887. when he expired in Gratiot county, Mich.
    George Keifer and wife came from Morrow county, Ohio, to Noble county, Ind, and settled in Orange township, where he passed the remainder of his days, and died November 18, 1898. Of their two children. Mrs. Sower was the younger. George Keifer came from Germany with his parents in 1819 and was reared in Lebanon and Lancaster counties, Penn., until about twenty years old, and then located in Morrow county, Ohio, where his marriage took place. He was reared to shoemaking, but after coming to Noble county, Ind., gave the greater part of his attention to fanning after the first ten years of his residence here, having realized quite a competence at his trade in the meanwhile.
    Mr. Sower is a Republican in politics and is always ready to perform his duties as a citizen at the behest of his party, but is not an habitual office-seeker. He has served for live years as assessor of Orange township and for one year a deputy assessor, in which office he performed his duties so impartially as to gain the approbation of the entire com- munity. He has in fact taken an active part in all local affairs, and, being a broad-minded and public-spirited citizen, has gained the undying approbation of his fellow citizens. Mr. and Mrs. Sower arc most liberal in their contributions and to all benevolences worthy their consideration.
