    Arthur C. Pearson. Included among the agriculturists of Spring Creek township who have won success in their chosen vocation is Arthur C. Pearson, the owner of a well cultivated property and a comfortable and attractive home. Mr. Pearson was born in Montgomery county, Ohio, in 1863, a son of Sampson and Hannah (Hoops) Pearson, farming people who passed their active years in Montgomery county, where they were held in high esteem. Their closing years were spent in Darke county, where they died. Mr. Pearson received his education in the public schools of his native county and was reared on the home farm, on which he resided until after entering upon his own career, in 1907, when he came to Miami county and purchased the nucleus for his present farm in Spring Creek township. He has made additions thereto and has added improvements almost yearly, so that his farm comprises one of the model country estates of his locality. He has applied his energies unremittingly to the cultivation and improvement of his land, but has found time to discharge faithfully the duties of citizenship and during the World war contributed a good citizen's share to the movements promulgated for the success of American arms. Mr. Pearson married Miss Martha Arnold, of Darke county, and to this union there have been born nine children: Ethel, the wife of C. G. Mauk; Ruth, the wife, of A. W. Cooper; Virgie, the wife of Carl Cromer; Zella, the wife of Oscar Stein; Catherine; Elma; Walter, who married Margaret Drake, and lives in Miami county; Harold and Ralph, who reside with their parents on the home farm.
