  • #WomanCrushWednesday Wilhelmena Hoch was born on June 24, 1871, the third of seven children born to Adam and Margaretha Heldman Hoch in the Jenera, Ohio area. August 4, 1892, Wilhelmena married John Wilson. One year later, the couple purchased a farm from John's Uncle in the Jenera area. They had four children, two of whom died as infants. She worked hard on the farm, and is best known for the farm records that she kept from the years 1893-1928. The records detail every item purchased for the farm, and how much. This treasure trove of information regarding agricultural life in earlier days has many copies, one is kept at the Hancock Historical Museum. These records have been praised by many farm magazines and publications for their rarity. The original documents are kept by Wilhelmena's great-grandson, Gary Wilson. Gary is the seventh generation to live and work on the family farm. Additionally, Wilhelmena's grandmother is well known in our area. Anna Margaretha Arras was on the Famous Dove, and is known as the 13 year old girl who sang the hymn to calm the passengers aboard the shipwrecked Dove. Wilhelmena Wilson died July 2, 1957, and was buried in St. Paul's Lutheran Cemetery in Arlington.<br />

  • #FarmerFriday Thomas was born November 18, 1832 in Fairfield County, Ohio to John and Mary Elizabeth (Fox) Flick. The family relocated to Hancock County around 1835. John had started out as a blacksmith, but changed to farming upon the relocation to Hancock County. Thomas worked on the farm while attending school at a log schoolhouse in Union Township. On February 18, 1853, he married Sarah Deeds. They had eight children; Eliza, William, Henry, Samantha, Marilla, Minerva, Leander and Maggie. He lived and continued to farm in Union township. Thomas Flick died in 1904. There was no obituary, and seemingly no death record, so we do not know exactly when or why he died. He was buried in Tawa Cemetery in Benton Ridge. <br />
