    JOHN PETRO, farmer, Jennings Township. The parents of John Petro were Michael and Ivah (Sutton) Petro, natives of Virginia and Pennsylvania respectively. The former was born on the south branch of the Potomac River, July 4, 1790. In early youth he moved to Ohio, settling in Warren County, where, July 4, 1811, his marriage with Miss Sutton occurred. In 1816 they removed to what is now Jennings Township, first living for a period within two miles of the present farm of their son John; thence removed to that farm. Mrs. Petro died on the latter farm, April 9, 1852, and Mr. Petro subsequently moved to Fountain County, Ind., and there died, November 20, 1869. Mr. Petro was a soldier in the war of 1812.

    Our subject was born on the farm on which he now resides, April 8, 1821. His educational advantages were only such as were afforded in the district schools. He was reared on the farm and has ever since followed agricultural pursuits. March 8, 1849, he was united in marriage with Mary J. , daughter of John Spivey. She was born in Hamilton, Ohio, March 25, 1828, and to them have been born: William H. (deceased), Ivah,
    James M., Hannah, David S. and John E.

    John Spivey was a native of Virginia, and his wife, Hannah (Prazie) Spivey, of New Jersey. They removed to Butler County, Ohio, prior to 1828, and in 1839 came to Indiana.
