EMANUEL BOVEY, carriage-maker; P. O. Ostrander ; was born in Hagerstown, Md., July 11, 1833, and is the eldest of a family of four children of David and Catharine Bovey, both natives of Maryland; the father was an extensive pump manufacturer in his time, and he died in 1844. Our subject, up to the time he was 14 years of age, worked on a farm and attended school in Hagerstown ; he was then apprenticed to the carriage-maker's trade with a Mr. Zedmire, of Hagerstown, and served an apprenticeship of three years; he then came to Ohio, and worked at his trade for some time in Newark ; he at one time revisited his old home in Maryland ; at length he started a shop of his own in Fairview, Delaware Co., where he remained about a year; the C. C. C. &, I. R. R. was at this time being constructed, and the village of Ostrander being started; Mr. Bovey came to the place and commenced business, opening at first on a small scale; he now owns one of the largest and most extensive carriage manufactures in the county. He was married to Elizabeth A. Winget July 20,1854 ; she was born in Delaware Co., Ohio, Nov. 7, 1838 ; they had six children, five of whom are now living-William C., Mary C., Clement L., Emma At. and Martin L.; deceased, Frankie. Mr. Bovey began life as a poor boy, and is a self-made man. (1)

EMANUEL BOVEY was born in Maryland and died in Alabama in 1899.  He learned the trade of carriage-maker in his own State and followed it there for a short time at Newark, Ohio, to which city he came prior to his marriage, which latter took place at Ostrander.  He then moved to Delaware and a few years later to Plain City and in 1889 to Athens, Alabama.  He owned 160 acres of land in that vicinity and followed farming together with work at his trade until his death.  He was a Democrat in his political views.  He married Annie, a daughter of Ezra Winget, of Ostrander, Ohio, and five of their children reached mature age, namely: Mary, now deceased, who married Walter Morrison, also now deceased; William C., whose name appears at the head of this article; C. L. V. Bovey, who resides at Warrensburg, Ohio; Emma, who married James W. McKitrick of Ostrander; and Martin, who is deceased.  The parents of the above mentioned family were worthy Christian people, the father being a member of the German Baptist Church and the mother the Presbyterian.

Elizabeth Anna Winget became a member of the Ostrander Presbyterian Church on March 16, 1878.  (31)
