      Jacob Favinger was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, September 1, 1837. His parents were of German descent, and natives of the "Keystone State", the parents of twelve children, ten of whom are yet alive. Farming was the father's vocation through life. In 1850, he and family moved to Green Township, purchasing wild land. He was an industrious man, a Democrat, and a member of the Presbyterian Church. His death occurred January 24, 1877; his widow survives him, and resides on the old homestead. Jacob Favinger was reared on his father's farm, and in youth received no education. While in the army he learned to read, write and cipher. When President Lincoln called for 300,000 men in August, 1861, he volunteered his services and was assigned to Company E, Thirtieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry. He was discharged for disability at Evansville, Ind., in January 1864. Mr. Favinger, at the battle of Shiloh, was twice wounded; and while in the engagement at Chickamauga, was shot through the lungs by an ounce ball, which is still in is body. He was married in 1864 to Sarah E. Watt, daughter of one of the old settlers of Noble County. Their five sons are William, Abraham, John, Marion and George. After his marriage Mr. Favinger purchased forty acres and started in the woods. After clearing three acres, he sold it and purchased forty acres of his present farm, which now consists of eighty acres. He and his wife started out in married life with little, but now have a pleasant home and surroundings. In politics, Mr. Favinger is Independent, and is now serving his fourth term as township constable. Green Twp
