CHARLES N. AMSPOKER resides on section 21, Washington Township, and is engaged in general farming and stock-raising. He is a native of Harrison County, Ohio, born Sept. 3, 1820, and is the son of Samuel and Mary (Norris) Amspoker, who were natives of Virginia, but who emigrated to Harrison County, Ohio, at an early date. They were the parents of nine children, seven of whom are living: Alexander, of Harrison County, Ohio; Samuel, of Logan County, that State; Susanna, the widow of William Patterson, who now resides in Lawrence, Kan.; Mary, the widow of Vincent Ferguson, residing in Harrison County, Ohio; Sarah, the wife of John Osborne, also of Harrison County; Charles N., of this sketch; and Jonas, and ex-soldier of the war of the Rebellion, residing in Jefferson County, Ohio. Mrs. Amspoker died in 1842, and Mr. Samuel Amspoker subsequently married Miss Ellen Green. He died in 1863.
Charles N. Amspoker was reared upon a farm during the pioneer days of Harrison County, Ohio, in the common schools of that section receiving his education. He was married, in April, 1846, to Miss Jane Slemmons, also a native of Ohio, born in Harrison County in 1821. She died Feb. 6, 1871. She was a member of the Presbyterian Church. In March, 1872, Mr. Amspoker contracted a second marriage, with Miss Jennie Mitchell, a daughter of Alexander and Eleanor (Beatty) Mitchell. Mr. and Mrs. Amspoker are members of the Presbyterian Church of Washington, Iowa, and are well respected by all who know them. Their farm upon section 21 is well improved with all the conveniences necessary to make life happy.
