    • John is buried in Garfield Heights Cemetery, Turney Road, Cleveland, OH

      JOHN H. TONSING, whose name is prominent among the agriculturists of his community, was born in Independence township, Cuyhoga county, Ohio, January. 4, 1855. His father was Frederick Tonsing, one of the early settlers of this county: he was a native of Hanover, Germany, and was a youth of sixteen years when he bade farewell to his Fatherland and crossed the seas to America. He married Eleanor Boehning, also a Hanoverian by birth, who was a lass of fourteen when she came to this country. He was a shoemaker by trade and followed this occupation several years in Cleveland. When he had saved sufficient means he invested in land and turned his attention to farming. He had a tract of 126 acres under excellent cultivation and all the surroundings indicated the thrift and prosperity of the proprietor. Mr. and Mrs; Tonsing had thirteen children, four of whom are now living: Frederick, who remains upon the old homestead: John H., the subject of this notice; Anna, who is the wife of John Meilander; Marie, who married Michael Manke; Henry, a popular teacher educated at Oberlin College, who died at the age of twenty-seven years; Louis, who died at the age of twenty-seven; William, who died at the age of nineteen; Martin, who was sixteen years of age when the Pale Visitant again entered the household; the other children died in infancy. The father passed away at the age of sixty-one years, in November, 1886. He was a most active member of the Lutheran Church, to which he gave a liberal support. In politics he adhered to the Democratic party. Mrs. Tonsing survives her husband, and still resides at the farm.
       
      John H. Tonsing passed an uneventful youth, attending the common schools of the township and assisting in the work of the farm. At the age of twenty-four years he married Elizabeth Schreiber, a daughter of Carl Schreiber, who was also born, reared and educated in Newburg township. Mr. and Mrs. Tonsing are the parents of six children: Arthur, Laura, Rose, Walter and May, twins, and Viola.
       
      The farm on which Mr. Tonsing resides with his family is well improved, the buildings being of modern style and conveniently arranged. He is one of the most reliable men of the township, and employing only the most correct methods in all his business operations commands the confidence and respect of all with whom he has any dealings.
       
      Politically he gives his allegiance to the Republican party. He is an active member of the Lutheran Church, being one of the Deacons. [6]
