    George H. Statler. One of the large land holders and extensive and successful farmers of Washington township, George H. Statler is also one of his community's progressive and public spirited citizens. He was born in Miami County, where he has passed his whole life, June 27, 1891, and is a son of Samuel K. and Clara E. (Kinsman) Statler. His father, who was a life-long agriculturist of Miami county, was a veteran of the Civil war, in which he saw eighteen months of service as a member of an Ohio volunteer infantry regiment. In war and peace he was faithful and trustworthy and established an excellent record for conscientious performance of duty. He and his worthy wife, both deceased, were the parents of two children: Elizabeth K., who married Will Harr, of Troy, Ohio, and George H. George H. Statler was given the advantages of attendance at the schools of Piqua, but was brought up on the farm and reared as a farmer's son. He assisted his father in the work of the home place until he reached years of maturity, at which time he entered upon operations as an agriculturist on his own account. Mr. Statler married Minnie S., daughter of John Shimmel, of Piqua, and following their union they settled down to agricultural pursuits in Washington township. From modest beginnings Mr. Statler has developed into one of the largest landowners in Washington township, where he is the possessor of 600 acres of valuable land, all in a high state of cultivation. He operates his land along modern lines and has it improved with good buildings and modern improvements in the way of machinery and equipment. He contributed liberally to the war drives during the period of the World war, and as a citizen has shown his public spirit by his support of worthy civic movements. Three children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Statler: Neil, born in 1913; Jean, born in 1915, and Amy, born in 1919.
