John Shengle, deceased, was born in Chester Co., Penn., March 6, 1797. He was one in a family of nine born to Martin and Elizabeth (Moonshower) Shengle, who were also natives of Pennsylvania. When 17 years of age, John left the home farm, and commenced working at the stone mason's trade, a business he followed until his marriage with Mollie Bucher which took place about 1819 in Lancaster County. His wife was a daughter of Jacob Bucher, a family well known in that county. He lived in Pennsylvania, farming until 1834, when he moved to Stark Co., O., locating in Nimishillen Township, on the farm now owned by J.B. Draime.
