There Samuel Dawes was reared, obtaining his education in the district schools of the neighborhood and following farming as an occupation. In the spring of 1901 he removed to Green township, renting a large tract in its southern part, and continued the operation of that farm until his death. Mr. Dawes was a Republican in his political views, but he never was willing to accept any office.
