    David Routson, retired farmer; P. O. Covington; is a native of Maryland, born in Carroll Co. in 1816; came with his parents to Shelby Co., Ohio, in 1833, where he grew to manhood, and was married, March 9, 1841, to Catharine, daughter of George Snow, deceased, who then resided about one mile west of Covington; Mr. Routson was raised a farmer, and followed that occupation until failing health compelled him to relinquish it; for a number of years, the farming was done by his sons, under his supervision, but, in the fall of 1878, he rented the farm to two sons, and removed to Covington, hoping to better his health by releasing himself, entirely from care; he now has, besides his residence on High street, the old farm in Shelby Co., containing 130 acres, which is well improved, and 126 acres in Montgomery Co., also in a good state of cultivation with good buildings; he has been a useful, industrious citizen, and it is hoped he may be spared to reside in Covington many years; Mr. and Mrs. Routson are the parents of eleven children, seven of whom are living; Elias W., Henry A., George W., Dorothea Ann (now Mrs. Uriah Rhoades, of this township), John G., Sarah M. and Albert L.; Elias W. was a member of the 110th O. V. I., and one of the two who returned, of seven that went out together; he is now a resident of Montgomery Co.
