Covington, born in Juniata Co., Penn.; emigrated to Ohio about the year 1835, and located first in Greene Co.; was in such limited circumstances that the end gate of the wagon-bed was used for a table for several years; the union of industry and economy has rewarded him with success, as he is today one of the most reliable and highly respected citizens of the township ; he has lately given $60,000 to his children in lands and property. While living in Greene Co., he followed teaming for seven years; then removed to Darke Co., purchased some land, and was engaged in farming until the year 1872, when he had a stroke of paralysis, which prevented him from laboring, he remained in Darke Co. until 1859, then removed to this county, and is now residing in Covington. He married Miss Henrietta Senseman, of his native county; they had six children, of whom five are living-William H., Benjamin F., Charles, Jacob S. and Susan B.
