bullet  General Notes:

JAMES T. FLEMING. Not all of the successful and representative farmers of Harrison County claim the county as the place of their nativity, and an exception is found in the case of Mr. Fleming, who is the owner of a fine farm property of 257 acres in Cadiz Township, where he established his residence in October, 1903, the property having been purchased by him in the preceding year. Mr. Fleming was born at Mannington, Marion County; West Virginia, on the 31st of August, 1866, and is the only child of William C. and Lavina (Taylor) Fleming, the former of whom was born at Fairmount. West Virginia, and the latter was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania. William C. Fleming, a son of James Fleming, was reared and educated in West Virginia, where his entire active career was marked by close and successful association with agricultural industry and where his death occurred in 1892.

James T. Fleming acquired his youthful education in the public schools of his native state, and there he continued to be associated with the work and management of the home farm until his fatherls death, when he assumed the entire control of its operation. He finally disposed of his property interests in West Virginia and, as previously noted, has been a successful representative of farm industry in Harrison County, Ohio, since the autumn of 1903. He raised the various crops best suited to the soil and climate of this section of the Buckeye State, and in the live-stock department of his farm enterprise he gives special attention to the raising of sheep of excellent grade. He is a democrat in politics, is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows and the Knights of Pythias, and attends and supports the Methodist Episcopal Church, of which his wife is a member. In 1888 Mr. Fleming wedded Miss May M. Tetrick, and they have three children: Ina is the wife of Fred Hatton, of Cadiz; William A. is associated in the activities of the home farm; and Gypsie married Frank E. Mattern, of Cadiz.
