      THE HISTORY OF TUSCARAWAS COUNTY, OH (CHICAGO: WARNER, BEERS & CO., 1884), p.953.
      WILLIAM HERRON. farmer, P. O. Sherodsville, was born in Baltimore, Md., June 7, 1813. and is a son of Mark and Rachel (Page) Herron. His father was a native of Maryland, and of English descent. The family came to Jefferson County, Ohio, in 1813, remaining there for several years; thence removed to Harrison County; finally coming to this county when our subject was eighteen years of age. Our subject was raised on a farm and educated in a log schoolhouse. When twenty-three years of age, he was married to Cynthia A., daughter of George Bovard. She was a native of Ohio. By this union five children were born, viz., Sarah E., wife of Joseph Sparks; Mary J., wife of James Justice; Matilda, wife of Luther Pearch: Lemuel James, minister of the Methodist Episcopal Church; and Margaret Ann, wife of Jonathan Bartholomew. Lemuel James resides at Geneva, and is a graduate from the Scioto College, in Harrison County; his wife is a daughter of Henry Barricks, of Carroll County. Our subject formed a second union, in 1852, with Jane, daughter of Isaac and Harriet (Belknap) Skeels, natives of Maryland and of English descent. She is a native of Ohio, and is sixty-five years of age. By this union four children were born, one deceased-William A., Kennedy C., John D. and an infant (deceased). Mr. Herron's father entered land in this township, where he lived. He died at the age of seventy-five years, and his wife died in Tuscarawas Co., Ohio. Our subject owns a well improved farm in the northeast corner of Union Township, and has been a successful farmer. His whole life, of seventy years, has been spent in Ohio. He has seen this country emerge from a forest and is well known among the pioneers.
