ANTHONY RESIBOIS, farmer, P. O. Five Mile, was born April 1, 1825, in Belgium, and from his youth up has been engaged in agricultural pursuits. In September, 1847, he emigrated to America, and, by way of New Orleans, came to Cincinnati, Ohio, from whence he came to Perry Township, Brown County, where he remained six weeks. He then returned to near Cincinnati, where he worked two years; from thence to Tennessee, where he remained a short time, when he again returned to Cincinnati, and remained there three years. He married, in Cincinnati, Miss Mary A. Etnne, by whom he had four children, two of whom are still living — Mary C. and Augustus. Mr. Resibois has always been industrious and persevering in his habits, qualities which characterize his native country. He is likewise a self-made man, having comparatively little when he started in this world for himself. Politically, he is a Democrat; he owns 158 acres of land, well cultivated.
