Four Mile Township
Leftwich, Charles -- Farmer, section 1, P. O. Rising Sun. Intimately associated with the early history and struggles of this county, is the subject of this sketch. He was born in Breckenridge county, Kentucky, on the 5th day of April, 1820, and until eighteen years of age lived in his native State. In 1838 he removed to van Buren county, Iowa, where he lived until 1846, when he came to this county and made a claim near where he now resides, moving his family in November of that year. He owns a farm of 333 acres in a good state of cultivation, and a fine forest grove of forty acres adds much to its appearance and value. Mr. Leftwich was married January 7, 1845, to Miss Elizabeth Oglevie. She was born in Harrison county, Indiana, November 5, 1827. They have a family of eight children living: George W., Zachary T. (both living in Nebraska), Thomas E., Annette, Jerry T., May, Rose and Laura D. Have lost five: Eliza J., Ruth E., Catharine E., James R. and John R.
