ANDREW URBAN, farmer, P. O. Findlay, was born in Saxony, Germany, June 27, 1817, son of Earnest Urban of Saxony. He was united in marriage, in 1848, with Barbara Hane, a native of Germany, came to Ohio December 21, same year, and settled in this county. He purchased the farm where he now resides, in 1858, and erected the buildings upon it himself; the old cabin in which he used to live is still standing opposite his new residence. Our subject and wife have been blessed with twelve children: Peter, Harriet, Earnest, John, Elizabeth, Charles, Lewie, Frank, William, Martin and Mary (twins), and Andy; five of these children are married: Harriett married John Heffnan (he died, and she was afterward married to John Marquot; she is now a widow); Peter married Maggie McKee (he was killed by a falling tree); John married Elnora Fisher; Eliza married Frank Carver, and Earnest married Polena Shoutlemire, all of this county except Elizabeth, who is in Putnam County, Ohio. Andrew Urban is now taking the world easy on his farm of 106 acres of land in this county. He also owns a farm of eighty acres in Putnam County, Ohio, where his son-in-law now lives. Mr. Urban is a member of the German Lutheran Church, and is a worthy citizen of Marion Township. [Source: History of Hancock Co, Chicago: Warner Beers & Co., 1886]
