    DAVID C. FALKNOR is a progressive citizen and prosperous farmer of Union Township, Miami County, Ohio, and, is located on a farm of fifty acres two and one half miles southwest of West Milton. He was born in Clay Township, Montgomery County, Ohio, October 12 1850 his paternal grandparents having moved there at an early date from Pennsylvania.

    Levi Falknor, father of the subject of this sketch, was born in Montgomery County, Ohio, and lived there all his life, dying at the age of eighty-two years. He always followed farming. He married Nancy Herr, also a native of Montgomery County, and the following were the offspring of their union: One who died in infancy; Carris, who lives in Montgomery County, Ohio; David C.; Frances (Good); Loren E., who lives at West Milton; Mary A. (Martindale); Theodore, who is engaged in farming; and Jerome, who lives in Dayton, Ohio.

    David C. Falknor attended the district schools of Clay Township, after which he learned the trade of a painter. He followed that trade in the vicinity of Dayton for eight years, after which he turned his attention to agricultural pursuits. He rented property in Montgomery County some fourteen years, and in 1891 moved to Union Township, Miami County, where he purchased his present farm from Daniel Wheelock. He has made most of the improvements on the place, set out all of the trees, erected tobacco sheds, and built the first silo in this part of the country. He follows general farming and tobacco raising, and by his untiring industry and progressive methods has met with deserved success.

    Mr. Falknor was united in marriage with Miss Clara Morse, who was born in Darke County, Ohio, but was reared on the farm west of where she now lives. Politically, he is a Democrat and takes a deep interest in the success of that party.
