Biographical Sketch

In 1851 his parents moved with him to a farm in the rich river bottom just below New Albany. During each winter he attended the log school near his home for three months. In 1859 he attended the Asbury Female College, as it was called, at New Albany, where he first met the young woman who was to be his wife. In 1860 he entered Indianan Asbury University at Greencastle, a cousin, William Poucher, for whom he felt a life-long reverence, making this possible by generously taking John's place on the farm. Working his way through Indiana Asbury, he was graduated from that institution in 1865. In the fall of the same year he went to Garrett Biblical Institute from which he was graduated in 1867. While attending Garrett he tutored in Northwestern University.
