TOBIAS MANGANS, butcher, Ostrander; was born in Frederick Co., Md., Dec. 20, 1827 ; second son of a large family of children of Joseph and Sarah (Horine) Mangans, both of whom were natives of Maryland ; there they remained until 1835, when he removed to Delaware Co., Ohio, and settled in Scioto Township ; his father died in 1873, and his mother in 1875. Our subject passed his youth assisting his father on the farm ; received such education as the schools afforded, and at 21 began for himself as a carpenter ; he had never served an apprenticeship, but his ingenuity and energy stood him in good stead; after awhile, he employed a number of hands, and was an extensive contractor and builder ; he at last bought a saw and grist mill, and for some years devoted his time to milling. His mills were destroyed by fire. Here his energy again manifested itself, for in a short time they were rebuilt, and in full operation ; at the expiration of five years, he sold his mills, and again followed his trade. Some o the best and most substantial bridges in this and adjoining counties were constructed by Mr. Man gans. He continued to work at his trade until 1872, when he moved to Ostrander, since which time he has been engaged in butchering. He was married to Miss Hagar Carr Jan. 8, 1849 ; she was born in Delaware Co., Ohio, Nov. 27, 1831 They are the parents of four children, three o whom are now living-Sarah C., born June 18, 1851 ; Susan E., Jan. 28, 1854 ; and Joseph C.
