JOHN BEAN, stock-raiser and farmer; P. O. Ostrander ; was born in Hardy Co., Va., Nov. 26, 1813 ; he is the second of a family of seven children of George and Susannah (Carr) Bean, both natives of the "Old Dominion" There they were married and, in 1817, removed to Ross Co., Ohio, where they remained about two years, and then came to Delaware Co., and settled on Mill Creek in Scioto Township. The parents were energetic and enterprising, and it was not long before they had a "patch" of ground cleared, and were quite well-to-do people for that day. They remained on the land they first improved until their death ; the father dying in 1866, and the mother in 1867. Of the seven children, there are but three now living. The old log cabin, built in 1819, is still standing, and in a good state of preservation. It is probably the oldest structure of that kind in the county. Mr. Bean was brought up on a farm, and had but few educational advantages. He began for himself at 22 years of age, by commencing the improvement of a farm in Scioto Township. He was married to Miss Sally Smart Jan.7, 1836 ; she was born in Franklin Co., Ohio, Sept. 15, 1812. Her father, Joseph Smart., came from Pennsylvania, where he was born, in 1776, to Franklin Co., Ohio, in 1800. About a year afterward, he was married to Miss Jane Beaty, of that county; he was one of the first white men to settle in Central Ohio; he died in 1838, and his wife in 1851. From the union of John Bean and Sally Smart there were seven children, six of whom are now living-Emily A., Susannah J., William M., Joseph S., George W. and John L.; deceased, Mary L. Mr. Bean has a well-improved farm of 100 acres, which he has obtained by hard work and economy. He and his amiable wife are members of the Baptist Church, with which they have been connected a number of years.  (1)
