    JOHN WOLCOTT, farmer; P.O. Conover; who was born in Brown Township, Miami Co., March 19, 1821, and is a son of John H. Wolcott, whose history will be seen under the sketch of George L. Wolcott, in some part of this volume. Our subject was reared on the farm and obtained a common education; he, in his earlier years, duly assisted his father in clearing up his farm and in the cultivation of fruit trees, which are now yielding fruit all over our own and the surrounding counties. Mr. Wolcott remained at home until May 17, 1846, when his nuptials were celebrated with Ann Graham, who was born in Bucks Co., Penn., in 1820; they have three children, viz., Sarah M., Louisa and Joseph G. Mr. Wolcott, since his marriage, through his own industry and the assistance of his family, has accumulated and hired 120 acres of good land, of which 40 acres lie in Sec. 12, and 80 acres, on which he lives, in Sec. 6, Brown Township, Miami Co. Mrs. Wolcott is a daughter of Joseph and Maria (Duer) Graham; they were both natives of Pennsylvania, and immigrated West to Ohio in 1833, and settled in Champaign Co., where they both died.
