About David Baughman

Family Rememberance of David Baughman

David had four children by his first wife, Rebecca Beaver: Barbara Ann, b. 1849, died as a child; Margaret, born 25 May 1851, died 15 Oct 1868 in Hardin County, Roundhead Twp., and buried in St. John Cemetery in the same row as her grandparents Henry and Mary Baughman; Mary Elizabeth, born 5 Jul 1853, died 21 March 1854 and buried at St. Johns also near her Baughman grandparents; and Rachel, b. 1854, died as a child and buried at St. Johns. Birthdates calculated from tombstones. Also, I read Rebecca Beaver Baughman's death date on her tombstone as 16 Jan 1854, rather than 1851, although the biographical sketch on David gives the date as 'February 1854'.

Biographical Sketch (1895):

"Few citizens of Hardin County are more deserving of special notice, or a prominent place in the history of the honored representative settlers within her boundaries, than the gentleman whose name we place at the opening of this sketch, and who has been a resident here since 1855.

Our subject was born July 3, 1819, in Allen County, this state, to Henry and Mary (Aigler) Baughman. . . . David Baughman was united in marriage to Rebecca Beaver, and the four children who were born to them were Barbara Ann, Mary Elizabeth, Margaret, and Rachel, all of whom are deceased. The wife and mother died in February, 1854, and May 29 of the following year Mr. Baughman married Catherine Gilman, of Hardin County. Their eight children were named, respectively, George W., Charles, Melissa, Lewis, Silas, Preston, Amos, and Sherman.

When starting out for himself, our subject learned the blacksmith's trade, following this business for seven years in Shelby County. Abandoning this at the end of that time, he became a carpenter, and for about thirty years was thus employed at various places. In 1855, however, he made permanent location at Roundhead Township, and since that time has given his attention to farming. For the first twelve years he farmed on a rented tract of one hundred and eight acres, which he later purchased. This piece of property is the same on which he now resides, and from the many improvements in the way of dwelling and barns which have now been placed there by our subject, the passer-by knows it to be owned by a man of progressive spirit and enterprise. Mr. Baughman has been School Director and Supervisor of his township, and in politics, during his younger days, was an active worker in the ranks of the Republican party."
