D.S. Conger, a former well known resident and pioneer settler of North township, now retired, was born in Butler Co., Ohio, Novermber 9th 1810, the son of David and Eve (Troutman) Conger, natives of New Jersey and Pennsylvania respectively.

The family moved to Butler Co., Ohio in an early day, and the father served in the War of 1812.

D.S. Conger grew to manhood in Butler Co., Ohio, remained with his parents until twenty-one years of age, at which time he started life for himself as a farmer. He was married in 1831 to Sarah, d/o Jacob and Nancy (Linn) Powers, who was born in Butler County, Ohio, February 7th 1810. Two years after his marriage Mr. Conger came to Indiana and located near Logansport, Cass County, settling upon land which he had previously purchased and upon which he resided until his removal to Marshall County [IN] in 1836.

On coming to this county he located a farm in what is now North Township in which part of the county his father-in-law also moved, the two families having been among the pioneer settlers.

Mr. Conger's life was that of nearly all early settlers in a new country, and he experienced in full measure the many hardships and trials incident to clearing and developing homes in the forest. He cleared three farms in Indiana and still owns a fine place in North township, from which he retired in 1878, moving to Plymouth, [IN], where he [is] now passing his reclining years in retirement.

Mr. Conger filled several official positions, having been trustee of North township for fifteen years and also commissioner of the county for one term. He is a Republican in politics, voted in 1836 or Gen. Harrison and also cast his ballot for him in 1840.

Of Mr. Conger's children, three are living at this time: David, of New Albany; William, on the homestead; and Mary Jane, wife of John H. Chase of Plymouth.

Mr. and Mrs. Conger are members of the Baptist and Methodist churches, respectively.
