Miami County, Ohio Genealogical Researchers -- Sponsored by the Computerized Heritage Association


    Among the native sons of Newton township, who are now classified as representative farmers and citizens, of Miami county, is Columbus Tisor, who was born on the 5th of August, 1846. His father, Hiram Tisor, was born in Ohio, and in an early day came to Miami county with his father, Austin Tisor, who located in Newton Township. The former married Phoebe Green and their union was blessed with four children, but Ruth and Mary are now deceased. Columbus is the next of the family and Alleyne is now the wife of Allen Jones. Hiram Tisor took up his abode upon the farm where our subject as born, securing there a tract of unimproved land. He bought one hundred and twenty acres on section 16, Newton township, and developed an excellent property, continuing its cultivation and improvement until his death, which occurred in 1885, when he was seventy-three years of age, for his birth occurred in 1812. He was a member of the Christian church and loyal to his religious belief, which he exemplified in his daily conduct with his fellow men.

    Mr. Tisor, of this review, was reared under the parental roof and the common school afforded him his educational privileges. After he attained to man's estate he desired to establish a home of his own and to this end he was united in marriage, in 1868, to Miss Mary A. Jones, a daughter William R. Jones. They now have seven children, namely: Eunice E., Hiram L., William R., Dortha M,., Maude E., Hubert R. and Lola M.

    After his marriage Mr. Tisor rented the old home property and carried on farming there until 1895, with the exception of a period of three years. He. is now living retired in Pleasant Hill, which has been the place of his residence for five years. In business he displays capable management, and unflagging industry, and these qualities enabled him to secure capital sufficient to make further connection with active business affairs unnecessary. He is a member of the United Brethren church and in politics is a Republican, warmly advocating the principles of the party, which has loyally stood by the Union in every crisis of the country's history since its organization.
