JULIUS C. THOMAS, farmer, P. O. Higginsport. This gentleman is a son of Samuel Thomas, Sr., whose sketch appears in this volume. Julius C. was born September 27, 1855, in Lewis Township, Brown County, Ohio. He was raised to farm life, and enjoyed the benefit of the common schools. He devoted his time on the home farm until his marriage, which was celebrated April 5, 1879, with Julia B., daughter of Samuel Waterfield, of Higginsport, whose biography also appears in this volume. The issue of this union is two children. Mr. Thomas is now residing on the original farm settled by his father, and manifests an interest that speaks well for his future success.
