GEORGE R. MARCH (deceased) was born at Matthews C. H., Va., Dec. 15, 1826; his father, John P. March, was born in Gloucester Co., Va., Feb. 27, 1794; he was a son of John and Elizabeth March, natives of Gloucester County, and both descendants of old Methodist families, who located in Virginia at a very early day. Our subject's father was a coach-maker by trade and worked in Gloucester County until about the year 1818, when he moved to Matthews C. H., and there married, December 23, 1822, Sarah Honley, the youngest of eight children born to Nehemiah and Nancy (Owens) Honley. By this union four children were born, viz., Willie, Elizabeth A:, George R. and J. Wesley, the latter being the only survivor. Mr. March was a private in Capt. Thurston's company, Col. W. Jones' regiment, of the Virginia Militia, in the war of 1812. In July, 1831, he with his wife and three children emigrated to Ohio to avoid the pernicious influences of slavery and located in Lebanon, where he continued working at coach-making until his death, which occurred Oct. 16, 1857. Our subject was raised in Lebanon, and, during the whole of his life, was one of its most influential and enterprising citizens. For many years, he controlled and operated a large and prosperous wagon-making establishment, which was discontinued at his death, May 29, 1865. He was married on the 28th of September, 1848, to Sarah, daughter of Otis W. and Jane Eveline (Bone) Stanford, natives of Vermont, who came to Ohio in 1817. By this marriage, five children were born, of whom the following four survive, viz., Laura B., Wesley S., Charles P. and George O.; Laura is the widow of James M. Pullen, deceased; Wesley is unmarried and living with his mother; Charles P., a merchant of Lebanon, was born March 4, 1856, and, on the 27th of July, 1880, married Miss Kate M, daughter of the late Capt. Lewis Daugherty, of the 35th O. V. I., who was killed at Atlanta July 20, 1864; George O., also a merchant of Lebanon, married Jan. 11, 1882, Miss Emma D. Turner, of Clermont Co., Ohio. Our subject's widow, after his death, married Henry Doebler, a merchant of Lebanon. The whole family are and have been members of the Methodist Church since the first account obtainable of them.
