Ward, John Stout

JOHN STOUT WIARD, farmer, P.O. Crossingville, was born in Cussewago Township, this county, July 14, 1826. His father, Leman Wiard, came from Connecticut to this township in 1819, and married Elizabeth, daughter of John Chamber1ain. After living the life of an honest pioneer, he died in 1847, at the age of forty-seven years. Of their eight children three are now living: John Stout, Mrs. Adaline Hites and Mrs. Lydia Joslin. Our subject married in January, 1855, Harriet, daughter of Jacob Flasher, now of Iowa. They now own a farm of 300 acres of well-improved land, including the homestead which they have made by industry and good management. Their children are Winfield L., Leora A., Aaron, Henry and Frank. Mr. Wiard was a soldier nine months, between 1862 and 1863, in the One Hundred and Sixty-ninth Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry. He is devoted to the culture of live stock and has some very fine short horn and Devonshire cattle. Our subject is a Republican; has held several township offices, always with credit to himself. Mrs. Wiard and the two eldest children are members of the United Brethren Church.
