William W. Haworth

William W. Haworth, now deceased father of Job and W. W., Jr., bought Adam Vinnage's farm south of Lewis, in July 1854. Vinnage had two brothers-in-law, Seth Bray and Benj. Bales, and themselves and their families were the earliest settlers of that locality--having pitched their tents there in 1853. Bales died in 1855. Vinnage removed to Taylor county. Two of Vinnage's children died in 1853, and were buried on the farm near Job Haworth's present barn.
