History of Greene County, Pennsylvania

 

DANIEL LOUGHMAN, retired farmer and stock-grower, of West Union, Penn., was born June 15, 1813, on the farm where he now resides.  His parents, Frederick and Catharine (Hammers) Loughman, came to this county in 1812.  They were natives of Maryland, and of German origin.  His father was a blacksmith and wagon-maker in early life.  He subsequently engaged in farming, and was among the pioneer settlers of Morris Township, where he spent most of his life.  He reared a family of thirteen children, of whom Daniel is the twelfth.  He was reared on the home farm attending the subscription schools, and has devoted his time principally to agriculture.  He owns a well improved farm where he now resides.  Mr. Loughman was united in marriage, January 15, 1833, with Rachel, daughter of John and Mary (Red) Stagner, who were of German descent.  She was born in Maryland in 1812.  Mr. and Mrs Loughman are the parents of six children—Thaddeus, a farmer; Frederick, a blacksmith; Mary, wife of Oliver McVay; Susan, wife of Warren Conklin; Adaline, wife of S. B. Clutter, and John, (deceased).  Mr. Loughman is a Democrat, and he and his wife are prominent members of the West Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church.
