MARY H. McCORMICK. -- Among the large and well cultivated farms of Delaware County, Indiana, here and there may be found smaller ones. just as carefully managed and just as productive, according to size, and upon one of these pleasant tracts, of fifty-two acres, in Perry Township, resides the lady for whom the following sketch is prepared. The birth of Miss McCormick took place in a state that has, in times past, produced many brave and self-reliant women. She entered the world, April 15, 1836, in Bedford county, Pa., a daughter of James and Elizabeth (Langham) McCormick, both of whomwere natives of the Keystone state, the former of Irish and the latter of German extraction. In 1839, Mr. and Mrs. McCormick immigrated to Fayette county, Indiana, where Mrs. McCormick died, after which the father brought his children to Delaware county. In 1841, Mr. McCormick was also removed by death, leaving three orphan children, Mary H. being the eldest, and at that time but five years of age. She was taken by her grandmother, and lived with the latter until, at the age of ten, she was bereft of this natural guardian. The next five years were spent in the family of a Mr. Hoover, but at that time, she undertook the care of Mr. and Mrs. Lyman Halstead, and faithfully performed a daughter's part to them until their respective deaths. Miss McCormick, in her life, has displayed those qualities, which make successful the lives of the hospital nurses, those noble women who smooth so many dying beds and show tenderness and care to those who have none other to care for them. Patience, tenderness, piety, industry and economy are necessary qualities to one who can take up such a burden. That the ministrations of Miss McCormick were appreciated was shown by a bequest of $1, Boo, at the time of the death of her employers. With this money she wisely invested in land adjoining the Halstead estate, and has lived 'here, her own mistress, ever since. The biographer is not informed concerning Miss McCormick's attitude on the question of woman's rights, but she has shown by her life that she has not preferred marriage, and has sufficiently proved by her efficient management of her affairs that she has needed no male directing hand. She has one sister, the widow of Joseph Runkle. For thirty-six years, she has been an active and valued member of the Christian church. Few ladies, indeed, have exhibited as much self-reliance as Miss McCormick, and none, certainly, deserves higher commendation.

Miles Harrold is one of the old settlers of Monroe Township, of which, for over a half century, he has been a well known figure. Mr. Harrold was born in Hardin County, Ky., July 8, .1815, and is a son of Jonathan and Esther (Nelson) Harrold. Jonathan Harrold, the father, was born in North Carolina April 23, 1780, the son of Jonathan and Charity (Beeson) Harrold, descendants of old and well known families who settled in that commonwealth at a period antedating the war of the Revolution. Jonathan Harrold, Jr., was the third son in his father's family and was reared a farmer in his native state, and departed this life May 17, 1865. Originally a democrat, he afterward changed his political views, and at the time of his death was a supporter of the Republican Party. His wife, the mother of the subject, died on the 20th day of July 1858. They were the parents of eight children and were most excellent and worthy people, highly respected by all who knew them.

Miles Harrold passed his boyhood days in traveling about from place to place, as his father was a man of rambling disposition, and never resided at one point any great length of time. Until seventeen years of age, he remained with his parents and then began learning the blacksmithing trade, and which was his occupation for about one year. Abandoning this calling he engaged in farming, which he has since followed with success and financial profit, and February, 18 37, became a resident of Delaware county, locating in the township of Monroe upon eighty acres of land which he had purchased a year previous from the government, at $1.25 per acre. He resided upon his original purchase until 1866, when he disposed of the same and bought his present place, consisting of 160 acres.

Mr. Harrold's early educational advantages were very limited, but he acquired sufficient information from books to enable him to teach, which profession he followed during the winter season in a rude log cabin in Wayne County. Mrs. Malinda Rhodes, who was born in Ohio, November 3, 1812, became his wife August 25, 1838. Mrs. Harrold is the daughter of Valentine and Catherine (Harrold) Gibson, who were the parents of fourteen children, seven sons and seven daughters, six of whom are living at this time. To Mr. and Mrs. Harrold have been born the following children: Almira, deceased; ? Calvin, deceased; Mary A., wife of S. Fleming; Esther, wife of R. Robe; Valentine, Jonathan, Wilson, deceased; John W., Bnj. F. and Milton, deceased. In public affairs, Mr. Harrold has ever manifested considerable interest, and from 1864 to 1866 held the office of county commissioner, beside which position he has held other places of trust. Financially, he has met with most gratifying success, and in addition to his fine farm owns? valuable town property, and has stock in a gas company. Mr. Harrold is essentially a self?made man, and his success in life is the immediate results of his industry and unaided efforts. He looks back upon a long and useful life, against which no suspicion of anything dishonorable has ever been uttered. Politically, he is a republican.

MRS. NELLIE CHEESEMAN -- A well-known and popular lady of Monroe Township was born in Grayson County, Va., May 16, 1820, and spent the years of her girlhood in the state of her nativity. She was married to Richard Cheeseman, a prosperous farmer who moved with his family to Indiana 1857, settling, in September of that year, in Delaware Township, this county, on forty-five acres of land, which he cleared and brought under cultivation. The county at that time was comparatively new, and Mr. and Mrs. Cheeseman made their was to their new home by blazing their path through the woods, traveling under many difficulties. Game was plentiful and formed a large part of the diet of the family for some time after making their settlement. Subsequently, Mr. Cheeseman moved to a point twelve miles northwest of Muncie, and in 1861, purchased land in Monroe Township, upon which he built a cabin, and from which he developed a good farm. He was a man of great industry, and his efforts were crowned with success, and at the time of his death, he was the possessor of 160 acres of valuable land, the greater part of which, under his successful management, was brought to a high state of cultivation. He was a popular citizen of the community, intelligent and enterprising, and well deserves mention as one of the representative men of Monroe Township. His memory is revered in his neighborhood by all with whom he came in contact. Ten children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Cheeseman, namely: Mantilla, wife of Samuel Andrews; Alexander, deceased; Mary J., wife of George Mansfield; Thomas J.; E. Lydia, wife of David White; Sara A., wife of John Roller; Isaac L., deceased; William J.; Hannah E., wife of Amos Acre, and Sylvester. Mrs. Cheeseman has born her full share of the vicissitudes of life on a farm in a new country, and has reared her large family to honorable manhood and womanhood. She has, indeed, been a true woman, and in her declining years her children rise up to call her blessed. In 1887 she had the misfortune of becoming crippled in the ankle, form the effects of which she has not been able to walk since. This severe affliction, has been borne with most commendable patience, and has been the means of bringing out all the finer and better qualities of her nature. She is beloved by all, and those who are just beginning the toilsome journey of life could safely imitate her example. See sketch of John Roller.

Rev Oliver Carmichael of the Christian Church, Muncie (retired), was born in Monroe Township, Delaware County, Indiana, in 1841, and is a son of Patrick and Louisa (Gibson) Carmichael. He was reared on a farm four miles south of Muncie, and remembers when the city was but a small village. He was educated in the common schools of Delaware County until he has passed his twentieth birthday, when he enlisted in company E, Nineteenth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, under Col. Sol Meredith, and was assigned to the Army of the Potomac, being soon promoted to First Sergeant. His first heavy engagement was the second battle of Bull Run; then at South Mountain, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Here, on the first day of the battle, he sustained a gunshot wound back of the right knee; was taken to the hospital (the court house), but owing to the vast amount of work to be done by the surgeons, his would was neglected for two weeks, and gangrene set in; being sent to the hospital at Baltimore, he was confined for three months, the gangrene in the meanwhile eating in a large hole in the flesh and rendering the whole side of the lower part of the limb devoid of sensation. He was then transferred to the Twenty-second Veteran Reserve Corps, being unfit for further field service, and put on guard duty at Washington until honorably discharged, July 29, 1864, after three years' service. He then returned to the farm in Delaware County, on which he remained until 1875, when, his health having further failed, he located in Muncie, and taught school at various intervals until about 1880. About the year 1865 he had united with the Christian Church, in which he became an active worker, filling the position of elder for a long period. About 1880 he began regular ministerial work, preaching at different points in Delaware County, principally as pastor at Smithfield, Pleasant Run, Royerton, Switzer, Centre, Swazee, and Converse, and after fervent and eloquent pleading for the cause of his Master, closed his labors about 1892 on account of failing health. Mr. Carmichael was married, in 1864, to Miss Martha Losh, daughter of John and Mary (Thompson) Losh, of Delaware County. Five children blessed this union, viz: Otto Carmichael, on the editorial staff of the Detroit Journal; Milton Carmichael, city editor of the same paper, and also former assistant chief of the Muncie fire department; Wilson Carmichael, cutter in a custom tailoring establishment at Indianapolis; Jesse Carmichael, reporter on the Muncie News, and Mary Carmichael, at home, Mr. Carmichael is a member of the Williams post, G.

Patrick Caryl Justice was born in Hagerstown, Maryland, Dec. 20, 1791. His forefathers lived in Scotland and moved to Northern Ireland. They were Presbyterian in religious belief. Katherine McGowan's parents also lived in Hagerstown, Maryland. When they came north they brought with them an old Negro woman, Aunt Anna, whom they loved very much. She had been Katherine's mother's nurse. She remained in the family until her death.

Patrick came to Muncie as a general store merchant. He also owned a large farm east of Muncie. He and his family came to Muncie only shortly before Katherine's death. His second wife was France VanHorn.

He was well liked by the Indians and especially by Jake or Chief Muncie. They spent many a delightful day together hunting deer. Patrick was a true marksman. He killed deer with a hoe on his 80 acres of land. This land was located where the bus terminal now is in Muncie.

During Muncie's early prime he was very active in helping to build the town. He was often called the main spoke in its hub.

One of his great contributions to Delaware County was his membership in the Masonic Lodge. He was the first Mason in Muncie. He was a charter member and held the office of Senior Warden for many years.

His hotel or tavern was widely known because of its two big pillars at the front entrance. Above this entrance was written these words, "The Pillars of Justice." To all masons this line is of great significance. To those who knew Patrick best, "The Pillars of Justice" was of three fold significance; a symbol of his office as associate court judge of Delaware County, a symbol of Masonry, and his name's sake.

Patrick was the Recorder of Delaware County for many years and his writing was the finest of all scribes in Muncie's record books.

He lived a full life, having been active in public and family life. He raised 10 children. He died at the age of 68 on October 8, 1859.

RICHARD A. ANDES, one of the prominent residents of Salem Township, Delaware County, was born in Rockingham County, Va., November 22, 1838, being a son of Adam and Elizabeth (Jones) Andes, both natives of Virginia, who could trace their lineage back to German and English ancestors. By trade, Adam Andes was a blacksmith, and until his death, in 1845, he followed that occupation. Mrs. Andes died two years prior to the above date.

Richard A. Andes remained at the old home until 1858, when he started out in life for himself, first locating in Tennessee, where he remained until 1862, working on a farm and carpentering. His educational advantages having been somewhat limited, he was obliged to depend upon the labor of his hands. The winter of 1862 was spent in Ohio visiting with friends, but in the spring of 1863 he came to Delaware county, Indiana, and later went to Indianapolis, where he began working at the carpenter trade, having become proficient in the same, while living in Tennessee. For twelve years, he remained in that city, where he labored industriously, taking large contracts and succeeding well in his chosen occupation. Mr. Andes was married, in 1865, to Miss Sarah Rubush, and one little daughter was born of this union. In 1867 the young wife died, and in 1875 Mr. Andes married Mrs. Mary S. Bowers, the daughter of Edward and Anna (Thompson) Sharp, the former a native of Tennessee and the latter of Virginia, and respectively of German and English extraction. Mrs. Andes is a sister of William Sharp, whose sketch will be found on another page.

Mr. and Mrs. Sharp emigrated to Henry county, Indiana, in 1832, copping to Delaware county, where Mr. Sharp became one of the most successful farmers, and owned one of the largest and best farms of the county, which he made by his own exertions. He was honored and respected by all with whom he came in contact. He was born in 1801, and died in 1854, his wife following him to the grave in 1878. Both were buried in the Sharp cemetery, where a large monument marks their last resting place. Mrs. Andes was one of thirteen children; was born in 1831, and lived with her parents until her marriage to Noah Bowers, who was also one of Delaware county's successful men. They were married just twenty years when he died, leaving her and three children. In 1875, she married Richard A. Andes, making him an excellent and capable wife. All of her family have been members of the Christian church, and her ancestors lie buried together in one sacred spot. Mrs. Andes is a consistent member of the same church, in which she is much esteemed and Mr. Andes is as highly regarded in the Methodist church, of which he is a member. Politically Mr. Andes is a republican, and takes much interest in the progress of public affairs, although he never had any ambition to serve as a public officer.

ROBERT I. PATTERSON. "Biographies should not be published unless there is something in the life or char-acter of the individual worthy of emu-lation or imitation by others under like circum-stances - certainly not for self aggrandizement." Such were the words of Mr. Patterson when approached by the publishers of this work, but sufficient was drawn from him to learn that there was something in the inner life of the man worthy of more than incidental mention. Robert I. Patterson was born in Muncie, Ind., March 28, 1843. His father, S. R. Patterson, was a native of Vermont, and his mother was born in Lexington, Ky., to which place her father, Burns* Turner, moved with his family from the state of Delaware to assist in build-ing a house for that sterling patriot and states-man, Henry Clay. Here her mother died, and upon the completion of the building the family came to Indiana and located near Econ-omy, Randolph county, but later, in 1828 or 1829, moved to Muncie, where her father, and her brothers, Minus and William Turner**, engaged in burning brick, brick laying and plastering. At that time Muncie was little more than an Indian trading post, containing but a few log houses, and they built the first brick dwelling ever erected in Delaware countv - the dwelling being on Main street and the business house on the ground now occupied by the Delaware Countv National bank. Minus Turner also built the first hotel (or tavern), on the present site of the Patterson block, corner Main and Walnut streets. In this hotel the parents of our subject first met and were married. After a few years of hardship and privation incident to pioneer life, they moved in a covered wagon to Chicago, Ill., where the father went into the tin and stove business, and became the owner of several lots at the corner of Lake and State streets. Here, also, the subject of this sketch (then a child) strayed from home and was lost for two days and a night, an event which so prostrated the mother that she was confined to her bed for many months. Disheartened by sickness and business losses, the father sold what little was left him and endeavored to retrieve his fortune at various points in Illinois. In Bloomington he was associated with the great landowner and cattle king, Isaac Funk, and later became ac-quainted with the then young lawyer, Abra-ham Lincoln. Being the only whig, or republican, at that time in a family of eight brothers, he was always an ardent supporter of this great and good man, and finally was killed at Kenesaw Mountain, Ga.***, in the serv-ice of this great chieftain. Robert I. Patterson inherited this love of country and the cause of human freedom, and he, too, at the age of seventeen years, enlisted, in 1861, and served his country four years in the Nine-teenth Indiana infantry, and re-enlisted in the field for three years more. He was wounded at Antietam and Gettysburg, and at the latter place was also taken prisoner.

The services of Mr. Patterson throughout the war were rendered in the celebrated Iron Brigade, it being the First brigade, First division of the First army corps of the army of the Potomac, being the first brigade organized in the Union army, and the official records show that it sustained greater loss in actual killed than any other. He has an individual record of fourteen general engagements, beside the minor battles and skirmishes in which the brigade took part. Up till the time of his enlistment, the life of Robert I. Patterson was passed in helping to batter the wolf of hunger and privation from his cabin home, and he was consequently deprived of even a common school education, but his father having been a school teacher, and the son being of a very studious nature, the latter mastered the rudi-ments of an English education, which were later supplemented bv knowledge gained in the great school of experience. The precepts and examples of an earnest christian mother were fortitude and devotion at all times, especially through the dark days of the Rebel-1ion when she was left at home with eight small children to care for, one of whom died just before the father was killed and while the subject was lying wounded in the United States hospital The good people, however, have been conisiderate of the claims of worthy soldiers, and Mr. Patterson has been honored by them. Being an ardent but consistent partisan and writer, his influence was appreci-ated, and he was appointed to a clerkship in the Indiana house of representatives during its session of 1876-77, a part of which term, however, he resigned to accept a position as railway postal clerk between Pittsburgh, Pa., and St Louis, Mo. He was subsequently transferred and distributed mail between In-dianapolis, Ind., and Cleveland, Ohio. The service was severe and the strain on his nervous and physical system immense, aggravating his army injuries, and he was compelled to resign. About this time his name was mentioned as a candidate for county treasurer, but the convention was corrupted and he lost the nomination. February 7, 1882, he was ap-pointed postmaster at Muncie by President Arthur, and filled the office very satisfactorily, and a change of administration alone prevented his re-appointment. The faculty of invention and construction is largely developed in Mr. Patterson, and he is the patentee of several useful inventions, among which are the J. I. C. steel wire curry-comb, and two patents on fruit jar fastenings, the complete jar, with its fastening, being now manufactured at West Muncie by the Patterson Glass company, and being pronounced by experts the most simple, cheap and durable of any invented. Mr. Pat-terson, however, is perhaps best known as a poet, and many of his poems have had an ex-tensive publication in the poetical and secular press, some of them in the Indianapolis Journal, the Judge, Cosmopolitan and other peri-odicals. Some have become more favorably known through their rendition by his daughter, Pearl, (now Mrs. W. R. Bean) who has earned a wide reputation as an elocutionist.

*** Samuel was indeed injured at Kenesaw Mtn, GA but didn't die there. He was sent to Jeffersonville Army Hospital and there died from complications and dissentery. I have not been able to locate his burial site. I'm told he isn't buried there or is possibly buried in an unknown soldiers grave. I find the unknown soldiers grave unlikely since they KNEW who he was. In fact, there are two sets of records on Samuel and, for the most part, contain the same details, all of which are accurate.
