Notes for Peter HENSEL

Biographical Sketch (1892):657, p. 197-198. "Peter Hensel for a number of years held an important place among the principal farmers of Perry Township, where he had valuable farming interests and was successfully engaged in agricultural pursuits. A native of this State, he was born June 18, 1828, in Stark County, and was the son of John Hensel, a native of Pennsylvania, and an early settler of this county.

Our subject was reared to man's estate amid the pioneer scenes of Stark County, and received his education in the schools which were carried on near his home, and which were taught in log houses, furnished with rude slab seats that stood on wooden legs. Holes were bored on either side of the building, and a slab laid on the wooden pins inserted therein served as writing desks for the larger scholars. To our subject and his wife were born a family of four children: Ira, Emanias, Catherine (Mrs. Austin Camp), and Harvey. Mr. Hensel departed this life October 29, 1888, highly esteemed by all who knew him, and in his death Perry Township lost one of her best citizens, and his family a loving father and husband. He was a Republican in politics and true to all the obligations imposed upon him as a man and a citizen. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and never wavered in his loyalty to that denomination. He was a Deacon in the church and hallowed every social and religious tie by a pure and upright life. At his death, Mr. Hensel left a valuable estate of two hundred and eighty acres, which was embellished with all the buildings which are to be found on a model farm, and all the accessories in keeping with the enterprise and progressive spirit of the owner. His life was a busy and useful one, well and worthily spent, and as such we are pleased to place his sketch before our readers."
