Oliver H. Palin
Birth: Dec. 19, 1833
Death: Dec. 5, 1902
"Oliver H. Palin - It will be seen by a perusal of this sketch of the life of one of the most respected and prominent agriculturists of Fountain County, Ind that his educational advantages in youth were very meager, for he was reared at a time when a good education was not considered so essential a part of a man's training as at the present day. Although somewhat deficient as regards his knowledge of books his naturally vigorous mind has so grasped and embraced the opportunities which have presented themselves, that he is accounted among the most intelligent and learned men of his section.
He was born in Henry County, Indiana Dec 19, 1833, a son of Henry and Hulda Hunt Palin, the former of whom was born in the Old North State. At the age of 12 he came with his father, who was a native of England, to Wayne County, Indiana and later settled in Henry Co where the rest of his ddays were spent. His wife was from New Jersey.
From the very first Oliver H. Palin was taught everything connected with farming, and after coming to Fountain county in the fall of 1853, he worked by the month for two or three years for an uncle, E.N. Palin who came to this county in Feb 1836, and settled near Newtown. In 1861 he settled on a 200 acre tract of land near Newtown which was partially improved, and on this farm he made his home for 20 years, during which time he put it in an excellent state of cultivation, and greatly improved it in the way of buildings, fences, etc. He was engaged in general farming, in whic he met with good success, but now rents his farm, which contains at the present time 320 acres. In addition to this he owns 80 acres of land one mile north of the home place, and a fine 40-acre tract of timber land, also a valuable city residence.
Mr. Paline wood and won for his wife, Mrs. Belinda (Martin) Bromley, widow of John Bromley, to whom she was married at age 17 Jan 21, 1846. Their married life extended over a period of not quite 10 years. Mr. Bromley's death occuring Nov 15, 1865, in Warren County, Indiana of which place he had been a resident about six years.
Mrs. Bromley's marriage with Mr. Palin was celebrated Sept 28, 1858. She was born in Miami Co Ohio April 15, 1827, a daughter of Ephraim Martin, who was a native of PA and eventually became a resident of Fountain County. His wife, who maiden name was Rhoda Sayers was born in Green County, Pennsylvania.
Mr. and Mrs. Palin have no family, but are in the enjoyment of a wide circle of friends whom it is their pleasure to gather beneath their pleasant and hospitable roof. They have acomfortable and handsome residence at the corner of Washington & Council Streets and now, as they deserve to do, are resting from the burden and heat of the day, and are enjoying the comforts thie early labor has provided.
Mrs. Palin is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church and in his politial proclivities, Mr. Palin is a Republican but he has never been an aspiral for office as the poltical arena has no charms for him." - History of Fountain County, Indiana, H.W. Beckwith, 1881
