    John C. Rudy. A skilled and progressive farmer, a citizen who has rendered excellent service to his community in offices of public trust, and a supporter of the institutions of education, religion and good citizenship, John C. Rudy is justly accounted one of the useful and reliable men of his locality. This highly esteemed resident of Newton township was born in this township, May 28, 1868, a son of Levi and Susan (Deeter) Rudy. His parents, farming people of Miami county for many years, were esteemed and respected for their dependable qualities and reared their five children to lives of industry and integrity. John C. Rudy was given the advantages of attendance at the district schools of Newton township, and grew up on the home farm, where he was taught the value of hard work and the principles of honesty and straightforward dealing. When he reached man's estate he entered upon a career of his own, starting in a small way and gradually developing his interests until he became, as at present, the owner of 179 acres of valuable land. This property Mr. Rudy has made one of the best in the township, erecting substantial and attractive buildings and installing good improvements. He is a general farmer and a raiser of a good grade of live stock, and in all departments of his work has achieved success. He has a pleasant and, commodious home in the vicinity of Pleasant Hill, a community in which his friends are numerous and sincere. Mr. Rudy was a generous and frequent contributor to the various movements made necessary by the World war, and as a citizen has also supported worthy movements. He has likewise served his fellow-citizens capably in public office, having been road supervisor for a period of thirteen years, and at this time being for the second term a member of the board of trustees of Newton township. July 10, 1898, Al. Rudy was united in marriage with Della, daughter, of Samuel and Christiana Furlong, farming people of Miami county, and to this union there have been born three children: Ivy May and Elma Belle, who died in infancy, and Harold, who is associated with his father in the cultivation of the home farm.
