p. 650 NOAH CHERRY.  
Noah Cherry, the well known proprietor of the Cherry Hotel at Canal Winchester, was born on the 15th of June, 1857.

His father, Andrew Cherry, whose birth occurred in Pennsylvania, May 13, 1820, was married on the 18th of April, 1839, to Miss Sarah Miller, who was born in Adelphi, Ohio, September 9, 1817.  At the time of his marriage, being then only nineteen years of age, he purchased one hundred and sixty acres of wild land in Ross county, Ohio, and with resolute spirit and a determination to succeed, the young couple established their home in the undeveloped and unsettled region.  Andrew Cherry cleared his one hundred and sixty acre tract unaided and in due course of time was rewarded by annual harvests of golden grain.  He also erected his first log cabin and made his home on the place until 1863, when he disposed of the property and in 1873 purchased what was known as the Job Zeigler farm, comprising one hundred and sixty-six acres in Fairfield county.  There he resided until 1899 when he retired from the active work of the fields and took up his abode in Waterloo.  In his farming operations he met with a gratifying and well merited measure of success and was widely recognized as a model exponent of agricultural interests.  He won many prizes for the excellent quality of his corn and wheat and also raised high grade cattle, hogs and horses, always having a fine specimen of the noble steed for sale.  His demise, which occurred in 1903, was the occasion

p. 651 of deep and widespread regret.  In politics he was a sturdy democrat, while his religious belief was indicated by his membership in the Lutheran church, in the faith of which he reared his family.  For more than a quarter of a century he had survivd his wife, who was called to her final rest in 1877.  Mr. Miller, the father of Mrs. Cherry, was also numbered among the pioneer settlers and was noted as a successful hunter and trapper of the early days.  His wife, a typical pioneer woman, was adept in the art of spinning and weaving and made various garments for the members of the household.  The record of the children of Andrew and Sarah (Miller) Cherry is as follows:  George, born January 31, 1842; Mrs. Margaret Dixon, whose birth occurred September 15, 1844; Mrs. Catherine Miller, who was born February 13, 1848; Mrs. Area Gley, born October 11, 1849; Mrs. Mary Knepper, born May 14, 1851; Mrs. Harriet Sailor, born October 15, 1854; Noah, of this review; and Alfred, who was born October 10, 1860.

At the early age of ten years Noah Cherry assisted in the operation of the home farm, performing as much work as a man, and up to the time he was twenty-one years of age he gave his father the benefit of his services, receiving no recompence save his board and clothes.  He was married at the age of twenty years, eleven and a half months but remained with his father until he had fully attained his majority, when he rented a tract of land and sowed it to wheat, from the sale of which he receivd his first cash capital.  Purchasing a team and farm implements, he rented a piece of land for two years and on the expiration of that period disposed of his entire possessions and removed to Shelby county, Illinois.  He there rented some property and bought a complete line of farm implements but at the end of eighteen months his wife was taken ill and he was compelled to return to Ohio, where he operated his father's farm for six years.  Subsequently he bought a farm of eighty acres [???] after residing thereon for three years he sold the property and in 1803 purchased the Cherry Hotel at Canal Winchester, which he has since owned.  It is a model hostlery and Mr. Cherry also conducts a fine livery stable in connection therewith.  Save for the assistance of his estimable wife, he has gained his success entirely through his own unremitting labor and unflagging diligence.  Though but eighteen years of age at the time of her marriage Mrs. Cherry at once proved herself a capable and efficient helpmate.  A number of men were employed on the construction of a railroad in the vicinity of her home and she took upon herself the task of boarding nineteen of them for four weeks.  They fitted up an outbuilding for lodging purposes and she provided their meals and did all other necessary work.  She now manages the Cherry Hotel -- a line of activity for which she is clearly adapted, being a cheerfal and untiring worker and one who finds pleasure in providing for the comfort of her guests.  Mr. Cherry gives his attantion principally to the livery business and the buying and selling of horses and is the owner of a very fine German coach horse which was imported direct from Germany.  

On the 19th of May, 1878, Mr. Cherry was united in marriage to Miss Hannah M. Washburn, whose birth occurred August 27, 1860.  Her father, William Washburn, who was a ship builder by occupation, passed away when  

p. 652 she was but three years of age.  Unto our subject and his wife have been born three children:  Nellie I., whose birth occurred at Canal Winchester, January 21, 1879, became the wife of Otis Haynes on the 14th of October, 1896.  She now has two childen, namely: Fay M., born July 10, 1902; and Carmen Evelyn, born December 15, 1906.  Ralph A. Cherry was born in Shelby county, Illinois, April 14, l882, and on the 19th of September, 1900, wedded Miss Rachel R. Woolshire, by whom he has two children: Francis O'Neal, born April 30, l902; and Bernice E., born January 16, 1907. Henry Frank Cherry is a native of Fairfield county, Ohio, his birth there occurring on the 29th of January, 1894. Both Mr. and Mrs. Noah Cherry have a host of friends and acquaintances throughout the community and are widely recognized as substantial upright and respected people.
