    JOSEPH B. BRANDT, one of Newberry Township's representative citizens, engages in farming and threshing and resides on a valuable farm of 100 acres, which he owns jointly with his wife. This property is favorably situated on the Stillwater Turnpike Road, two and one-half miles north of Bradford. Mr. Brandt was born on a farm in Darke County, Ohio, January 23, 1859, and is a son of Melchi and Frances (Brown) Brandt.

    Joseph B. Brandt was reared and attended school in Darke County, and ever since old enough to use farm implements has been engaged in work of an agricultural nature. He owns a threshing-machine and does a large business in that line. In 1901 he and wife purchased this farm, which formerly belonged to Abraham Miller, his father-in-law, and here he carries on general farming.

    In 1887 Mr. Brandt was married to Miss Eliza Miller, who was born and reared on this farm, and they immediately settled here. Her parents were Abraham and Sallie (Bashore) Miller, the latter of whom was born in Virginia, and died in 1895. Abraham Miller was born on what was then included in this farm but had been portioned off into another farm, and spent his whole life here, dying in 1899. Mr. and Mrs. Brandt have five children, namely: Arthur, Clarence, Fern, Alta and Alma, the two last named being twins. Mr. Brandt and family are members of the Brethren Church.
