Samuel S. Liddle





Samuel S. Liddle, proprietor of livery stable, was born in Mahoning Co. Ohio, May 24, 1844 and is a son of Carnes and Julia A. (Gilbert) Liddle, the former a native of England, of Irish parentage and the latter of Eastern Pennsylvania, of German Descent. They were married in Mahoning Co. Ohio, and settled on a farm in that county. They were the parents of the following children: Joseph (deceased), Mrs. Mary Fletcher (of Wheeling, Va.) John (who served nearly four years in the Rebellion and died of wound received in the service), Samuel S. ( of Sharon), Juliet (deceased) and Henry ( of Wheeling, Va) .

Samuel S. grew up in his native country and in 1861 enlisted in Company D, Sixty-first Ohio Volunteer Infantry, for three years, but in the latter part of 1862 he was discharged from the regiment on account of sickness contracted in the service. Returning home he soon after went to Youngstown, Ohio, and learned the blacksmith's trade. In 1865 he came to Sharon, where he was employed in the rolling mills about one year and learned the puddler's art, but then went back to his old trade, entering into partnership with Cornelius Bowden. He subsequently sold his interest when he went into the livery business with Mr. Boise. After a few years he bought out his partner and continued the business for several years, when business reverses necessitated his returning to his trade, at which he worked till October, 1878, when the present partnership of Liddle & Dougherty was formed. Mr. Liddle was married July 8, 1868, to Miss Julia Quinby, daughter of Samuel Quinby, one of the pioneers of Sharon. Three children were born to them: Carl C., William W. and Essie E. Politically he is a Prohibitionist and a member of the A. O. U. W. The family belong to the Presbyterian Church.
