  • Notes 
    • John S. Juday, subject of this sketch, was born on a farm in Preble county, Ohio, January 20, 1831, and was brought to Indiana when a child of five years. As a consequence nearly all his recollections are of Elkhart county, and he has known no other home. He attended the old log school-house in the district, and while young killed many deer on the land now farmed by himself and neighbors. When twenty-five years of age he married Miss Levina Finley, daughter of Orrin Finley, who was a native Vermonter and who settled in La Salle county, Ill. Two children were born to this union: Dora M., who died at the age of two years, and James O. John S. Juday worked in La Salle county, Ill., two years and then made a settlement in Elkhart county, Ind. His wife died three years after marriage, and Mr. Juday's second marriage was to Miss Sarah A. Peoples, daughter of Francis and Mary Peoples. Two children blessed this union: Salena A. and Minnie A. Our subject bought his present farm in 1868 and settled on it in 1870. It then consisted of forty acres, and to this he has since added eighty acres and now has 120 acres of good farming land. He has a good brick residence, substantial barn, and everything about the place indicates a progressive and prosperous owner. He is a public-spirited man, has taken an active interest in having good schools in his community, and is a member of the school board. His children are all well educated. “Pictorial and Biographical Memoirs of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties, Indiana
