    I. C. KISER, M.D., who is engaged in the practice of medicine at Fletcher, and is a representative citizen of the place, is a member of one of the oldest settled families in Brown Township. Dr. Kiser was born in 1873, in Brown Township, Miami County, Ohio, and is a son of Benjamin and a grandson of Isaac Kiser.

    Isaac Kiser was the first white child born in Brown Township, and the whole of his long and useful life was spent here, which was prolonged to eighty-seven years. He, was a man of prominence in this section, a leader in all public movements, the owner of 600 acres of land, and one of the township's capitalists. For many years he was justice of the peace, dividing honors with the late Justice Duncan, and together they handled all the early litigation.

    Benjamin Kiser, father of Dr. Kiser, was reared on his father's farm in Brown Township, and the larger part of his life was devoted to agricultural pursuits. During the Civil War he served honorably as a member of Company C, Seventy-first Regt., O.Vol. Inf. He married Mary A. Hetzler, and they had four children, namely: Elmer, who is engaged in the meat business at Sidney, Ohio; Minnie, who is married and resides in Miami County; I. C., of Fletcher; and Foster, who is a student of medicine.

    Dr. I. C. Kiser was reared on the old homestead in Brown Township, and from the country schools entered the Ohio Normal University at Ada, where he completed a literary course and also graduated in pharmacy, and then entered the Ohio Medical University of Columbus, where he received his degree in 1897. Dr. Kiser immediately located at Fletcher, fitting up a convenient office on Main Street, and has built up a very satisfactory practice. He keeps fully abreast of the times, and makes use of the scientific methods which modern investigation have made possible and advisable.
