Charles H. Juett, a well known farmer of Woodstock township is
the subject of the following biographical sketch. He is a native of the
State of Kentucky, born in Fayette county, June 7, 1831, a son of John
and Catharine (Hoffman) Juett; the parents were natives of the
Bluegrass State, and there passed all their days; they had born to them
a family of nine children, two of whom died in infancy, and four of
whom are yet living. Charles H. was married February 22, 1859, to Miss
Mary Jane Hoffman, a native of Fayette county, Kentucky, and a daughter
of Michael and Syba Hoffman. Nine children have been born of this
union, two of whom died in infancy: John M.; William, who is married
and has one child; Anna M., married and the mother of two children;
Catherine A., married and the mother of three children; Eliza E.;
Charles H.; Benjamin D.; Effie S. and Francis M.
After his marriage Mr. Juett removed to Illinois, and settled in
Brown county; later he came to Schuyler county, and here he purchased
160 acres of timber land; he then undertook the task of clearing this
and placing it under cultivation; he erected a log cabin, 16 x 18 feet,
which was afterward destroyed by fire. As his means increased he made
additional investments in land, and now owns 320 acres, all under
cultivation. He is engaged in general farming, and has been very
successful. He has filled various local offices, and in both public and
private life he has made a record for honorable and correct methods of
dealing that command the confidence of the entire community.
In politics he was allied with the Whig party until its
dissolution, and since that time he has voted the Democratic ticket.
