Samuel Whistler was a resident of the township for twenty-one years and a strong character. When a young man he was engaged in business in Columbiana county, Ohio, but in 1851, with his wife and family, moved to a farm in Indiana, and four years later to Enda (sic Edna) township, this county. He settled in section 16, where he built a small log cabin and resided until a few years before his death in 1876. Ad a young man he had united with the Christian Church in Columbiana county, Ohio, and there began preaching in that denomination. When he came to Enda (sic Edna) township, although he industriously improved his farm and succeeded in supporting a large family, he continued his pastoral work and preached regularly until his death. Robert M., a son who was seen years of age when the father located in Cass county, was reared to manhood in the township and subsequently occupied the old homestead with hisown family and his widowed mother.
