D. A. Couch, a successful agriculturalist residing on Section 21, Sherman Township, was born in Ohio May 15, 1853, and has been a resident of Jasper County since 1866. He came to the County with his parents, Rufus B. and Mary Marlow Couch. His father was a native of Ohio, and is now deceased. His mother is still living, and resides in Clear Creek Township. Margaret Morehead was born in Allamakee County, Iowa, January 25, 1864, and became the wife of our subject February 8, 1885. They are the parents of three children, Carl, Clara and Neva. Our subject remained on the old homestead with his parents until thirty-two years of age. He started for himself with limited means, and was possessor at that time of a team of horses. What he has accumulated, has been the result of his own efforts, and now possesses 80 acres of land, and is comfortably situated.
