About Demas \Demis M. Hildebrand

D. M. HILDEBRAND a native of the "Keystone State," was born in the year 1824, a son of Michael and Christina (Harsh) Hildebrand.

His early years were passed in assisting his parents on the home farm and attending subscription schools, such as were common at that period.

In 1845, his union with Miss Margaret Keys was solemnized, and the following named of the seven children born to them are yet living: Henry W., Ira A., James B. Mc., Louella and Carrie E. Mr. Hildebrand came to Greene County, Ind., in 1882, purchased the farm of Dr. H. V. Norvell, in Richland Township, and has since resided here, where he has won the respect and esteem of his fellow men. His eldest son purchased the Richland Flouring Mills on Richland Creek, and is now producing an excellent quality of flour, which meets the approbation of those who patronize the mill. Although but a recent comer to Greene County, Mr. Hildebrand is taking an active part in the welfare of his adopted county. In politics, he is Democratic, and both he and his wife are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church.
