    John B. Westlake, farmer; P. O. Troy; is a son of Josias Westlake, of whom mention is made in the biography of G. K. Westlake; from the Colonel, we have many items of interest, which will appear in the history of Monroe Township. John Westlake first married Miss Lucinda Earnhart; she died July 4,1868, leaving William J., less than 1 month old. The second marriage, to Miss Mary J. Robbins, was celebrated Oct. 24, 1873, at the residence of the bride's parents, Rev. L. F. Griffith officiating; they are the parents of two children; Samuel C., born May 16,1876, and Blanche P., Nov. 17, 1878. The neatness everywhere visible be tokens the good taste and industry of both parties, and we know Mr. Westlake to be an excellent farmer; he is the owner of 50 acres of land, upon which he resides. During the war of the rebellion, he enlisted in Co. G, 147th O. V. I., and was honorably discharged at the expiration of his term of service; he is now Township Trustee, and fills the position with credit. Both himself and wife are members of the Christian Church, and John is one of the stanch Democrats of this county; his tuition, politically, was engrafted upon his mind at an early age, as his father is one of the leaders of that party in Monroe Township; his character is above reproach, and his daily life harmonizes well with his profession.
