JONATHAN STUCK

Jonathan STUCK, farmer, section 4, Lott's Creek Township, is among the leading agriculturists and old pioneers of Ringgold County. He was born in [Northumberland of] Union County, Pennsylvania, July 30, 1828, son of Jonathan and Elizabeth STUCK. He was the third of four children, and was reared a farmer.

At the age of fourteen years he learned the tailor's trade, and followed that occupation four years. He then removed to Lucas County, Ohio, where he resided three years, thence to Seneca County, Ohio. In 1852 [March 4th at Sandusky County, Ohio] he was married to Miss Anna PAINE [sic, should be Anna M. PAYNE], and their two children were Henry and Franklin. In 1855 Mr. STUCK removed to Missouri, where Mrs. STUCK died the same year.

July 14, 1855, he came to Ringgold County and entered 160 acres of land from the Government at $1.25 per acre. His first residence was a log cabin, 16 x 18 feet, with puncheon floor. He has since added to his farm until he owns 349 acres, and his farm is known to be one of the best in the township. He has a good, one-and-a-half-story residence, modern style and well furnished, surrounded with shade and ornamental trees, out-buildings for stock, an orchard, and everything about the place indicates the thrift of the proprietor.

In 1857 Mr. STUCK married Miss Mary HOLLISTER, a native of Greene County, Indiana, and they have eleven (sic) children - Elizabeth, Mary Ann, John, Jacob Lincoln, James Manuel (sic), Lucinda, Peter, Daniel, Charlie, Martha ["Mattie"] and Joseph. Mr. STUCK came to Ringgold County with very little means, but by industry and good management he has acquired a large property. Postoffice, Caledonia.
