JACOB C. RINGER, (Prospect Township) retired farmer, was born in Franklin Township, Westmoreland Co., Penn. The names of his parents were Christian and Mary (Ringer) Ringer, the last named being a daughter of Michael Ringer. When twenty years of age, Mr. Ringer commenced learning the carpenter's trade. He came to Ohio in 1850, and located near Marion, and followed carpentering and house-building exclusively until 1864, when he bought a farm of 100 acres on Section 33, Marion Township, which he still owns. After the purchase of the farm, he still continued at house-building, attending to his farm interests at the same time, and in 1877 erected a comfortable residence in Prospect Village, where he now resides, having partially retired from business. He was married, in 1853, to Catharine Uncapher, by whom he had two children, both deceased. Mr. Ringer was again married December 3, 1868, to Jane Williams, born January 31, 1841, a daughter of John T. and Kittie E. (Berry) Williams, who were early settlers in this county. By his last marriage there are two children-Mary E., born June 18, 1870, and Perry W., born January 1, 1872. Mr. Ringer is a Prohibitionist in politics, and has served as Village Councilman for three years. Himself and wife and daughter are members of the Baptist Church.
