    ... His second son, Joseph Addleman, was the grandfather of our subject. He married Sarah Pierce, and to them were born ten children. In 1826, his sons, John M. and Caleb, accompanied by their sister Orpha, came to Wayne County, Indiana, and in 1828, the father brought the remainder of the family. He located in Franklin Township, where he spent the residue of his life, devoting his energies to the work of the farm. He was a large, robust man, and was almost ninety years of age at the time of his death.

    John M. Addleman, the father of our subject, was born April 14, 1790, and was married November 24, 1813, to Sarah Whitaker, whose birth occurred in 1796. On their removal to Wayne County, they took up their residence upon a wild tract of land, comprising one hundred and sixty acres, which he converted into a good farm. He had also mastered the cooper's, carpenter's and stonemason's trades, which he followed to some extent, aiding in the erection of many of the best residences of the vicinity at an early day. In 1856, he left his farm and removed to the village of Whitewater, where he died at the age of eighty-three years. His wife survived him only ten days, passing away at the age of seventy. They were consistent members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and for eight years, the father served as Justice of the Peace. In their family were fifteen children, ten of whom grew to maturity, namely: Milton, who was killed by lightning when a young man; Anna Maria Margaret, who is the widow of William Kemp, and is living a mile north of Whitewater, at the age of eighty-one years; Joseph, who died in Franklin Township, Wayne County, at the age of seventy-two years, leaving two sons, Thomas Jefferson and Charles Ardilla; John Clarkson, a carpenter, who is living in Whitewater at the age of seventy-seven; James, who died at the age of twenty-five; William S., whose name heads this sketch; Benjamin, who formerly followed carpentering, and now resides in Whitewater; Mary, wife of William H.
