PHILIP PAUL, a prominent farmer of Wayne Township, was born in Hancock County, Ohio, January 10,1844. When nine years of age he came to this county with his parents, John and Margaret Paul, where his father purchased 160 acres of timber-land on section 3, Wayne Township, and built his log cabin in the forest, which, in later days, has been replaced by a more modern and comfortable one. Like other pioneers he endured the usual hardships of the new comer into an undeveloped country. He remained on this farm until his death, which occurred in 1865. His wife survives him and resided at the home of our subject. Of their large family of children, only seven are living--Jeremiah, Catherine, wife of Q. A. Hossler, of the Indiana Republican, at Warsaw; Mollie, wife of Harry Bennett, of Warsaw; Amanda, wife of Henry Elder; George, residing in Indian Territory; Jonathan F., residing in California, and John. Philip Paul was a Democrat in politics, and very highly esteemed in his community. The subject of this sketch was reared to manhood in this county, and married Rebecca C. Bennett, daughter of Benjamin and Susan Bennett, early settlers of this county. They have three children--Jerald B., Hamilton K. and Susan C. Mr. Paul has been a resident of this county ever since his arrival, with the exception of a short time spent in "the West." He owns seventy acres of good land. Politically he affiliates with the Republican party.

Rockingham County, Virginia
Towns in Rockingham County

Port Republic

Port Republic is one of the oldest towns in Rockingham, and in the 20’s and 30’s, after the South Shenandoah had been made navigable for floatboats, was, in the happy phrase of Mr. Richard Mauzy, a place of great expectations. The following paragraph, from an Act of Assembly passed January 14, 1802, gets us back to formal beginnings:

Be it enacted by the general assembly, That twenty-three acres of land, the property of John McCarthrey, junior, lying between the north and south branches of the south fork of Shenandoah river in the county of Rockingham, shall be, and they are hereby vested in George Gilmer, Benjamin Lewis, Matthias Aman, John Givens, and Henry Perkey, gentlemen trustees, to be by them, or a majority of them, laid off into lots of half an acre each, with convenient streets, and established a town by the name of Port Republic.


In January, 1804, an Act of Assembly was passed establishing the town of Newhaven on the land of Gideon Morgan and William Lewis, and appointing Edwin Nicholas, Asher Waterman, George Huston, George Gilmore, Mathias Amon, Benj. Lewis, Henry Perkey, and Henry J. Gambill as trustees. The site of New Haven is on the north side of the rivers, opposite or a little below Port Republic. It will be observed that the two places had several trustees in common, and their names indicate the importance that was attached to their location upon navigable water. We can readily imagine them upon a "boom" in 1804, and thereabouts, but New Haven seems never to have reached the actual proportions of a town. The name is by this time remembered by only a few persons.

"Commemorative Biographical Record of Northwestern Ohio, including the Counties
of Defiance, Henry, Williams and Fulton," Chicago, J.H. Beers & Co., 1899
in the Biography of William D. Fried (son of Joseph V Freed:

... His paternal grandfather, HENRY FRIED, a native of Germany, came to America in boyhood with his parents and located in Pennsylvania, where he continue to reside until he attained his majority, removing then to Stark County, Ohio. Having obtained a good education, he successfully engaged in teaching for some time, but never settled down to one line of occupation. His last years were spent at the home of his son, JOSEPH, in Williams County, where he died about 1859. He served as a soldier in the Mexican War, and was a strong Whit in politics. His last wife died at Osnaburg, Ohio, in 1858, and six of their twelve children died before reaching maturity. The others are Henry, William, George, Joseph, Polly and Nancy. ..."
