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


    A well-improved farm of fifty-five acres in Newberry Township bears witness to the early-morning and late-at-night energy of Moses B. Wise, a progressive raiser of the kind of produce which has contributed to the agricultural prestige of the Miami Valley. Mr. Wise was born in 1858, near Bradford, Miami County, a son of Moses and Elizabeth (Berkett) Wise. His parents, agricultural people who were highly esteemed in their community, were the parents of thirteen children. Moses B. Wise obtained his education in the public schools of Miami County and as a youth adopted the vocation of agriculture, which he has followed throughout his career. At the present time he is carrying on operations on the former Falkler farm, a tract of fifty-five acres, on which are to be found numerous improvements, including a comfortable rural home, located on Bradford Rural Route, in which is found the invariable good-fellowship and hospitality which distinguish the well-bred, intelligent, and thoroughly progressive agriculturist. Mr. Wise was united in marriage with Anna, daughter of Joseph and Anna (Bashore) Miller, farming people of Miami County and to this union there have been born seven children: Cora, Jess, Joseph, a farmer of Miami County, who married Mary Kellar; Homer, who had training at Camp Jackson for the U.S. Army during the World War; and Ella and Israel, who reside with their parents. Mr. Wise has discharged the duties of good citizenship, but has not sought personal preferment in offices of public character. He is a man of solid and reliable traits of character, generous and consistent in his contributions to worthy causes, and a vigorous promoter of education, morality and good citizenship.
