    SAMUEL M. FETTER, a well known resident of Newberry Township, Miami County, Ohio, is the owner of 130 acres of farm land located three miles north of Bradford. He was born on this farm, December 7, 1861, and is a son of Jacob and Catherine (Brumbaugh) Fetter.

    Jacob Fetter was born about one mile east of the farm above mentioned, and was a son of Samuel Fetter, who was one of the pioneers of Newberry Township. Jacob was an early day school teacher and for more than forty years was a school director. He held numerous other local offices and was a prominent man of the township. He lived to reach the advanced age of ninety years. He was first married to Anna Hogan, by whom he had four children. His second union was with Catherine Brumbaugh, who also was born in Newberry Township and was a daughter of Jacob Brumbaugh, who came from Pennsylvania. They also had four children.

    Samuel M. Fetter was reared on the home farm and attended the schools of this locality. He has been in the threshing business ever since he was fourteen years of age, and has also dealt in horses for the same length of time. He raises a high grade of Percheron-Norman horses and has been more than ordinarily successful in that branch of his business. In addition he follows general farming. He erected a fine barn on the home place in 1901, and two years later built the comfortable frame house in which he lives. Mr. Fetter was united in marriage with Miss Henrietta Miller, who is a daughter of Abraham Miller, and they have three children: Myrtle May, who is the wife of Ashley Routson and has two children, Mildred and Marcella; Otto; and Raymond LeRoy. Mr. Fetter is a man of wide acquaintance and is held in high esteem.
