JOHN M. DYER, miller, was born in Hamilton Township, Warren Co., O., Sept. 22, 1825. His parents, John and Milly (Butterworth) Dyer, natives of Virginia, were born, the former near Petersburg, Feb. 22, 1779, and the latter in Campbell Co., Sept. 15, 1789. They were married in 1807, and in the year 1815 emigrated to Ohio and settled in Hamilton Township, Warren Co. They died Feb. 20, 1855, and Aug. 31, 1830, respectively. Mrs. Dyer was a daughter of Benjamin and Rachel (Mormon) Butterworth, who were of English descent. Our subject is the youngest of a family of five children, of which he is the only survivor. He was reared on a farm, and in the district schools of the township received his education. On the 14th of March, 1844, be was united in marriage with Margaret L., daughter of Joseph and Mary Martin, of Virginia; and to them were born two children, namely: Mary E., born April 18, 1847, and Benjamin F., born Jan. 27, 1858, both of whom are graduates, having received a collegiate education. Benjamin F. is now Principal of the public schools of Loveland. Our subject was brought up a "Friend," but in later years became a Methodist, of which church, both himself and wife are consistent members. In the days of the Whig party Mr. Dyer was found in its ranks, and on the organization of the Republican party became an advocate of its principles. He served as one of the Commissioners of Warren Co. during the years 1870-71-72, and for many years as Trustee of Hamilton Township. He was occupied as a farmer until the year 1872, when he became a partner with H. Eveland in the flouring mill at Loveland, where he is now engaged, but retains his residence in Warren Co. He is a very affable and genial gentleman, and one of the best citizen of the county.
