William T. Histe brother of Maria Histe Miller

WILLIAM T. HISTE, ex-county commissioner, Fostoria, was born in Columbiana County, Ohio, September 26, 1826, and came here with his parents, George and Sarah (Sawlaw) Histe, who settled in Fostoria, Ohio, in 1844. His father, a brick-maker and wheelwright by trade, for several years after coming here worked at cabinet-making, after which he manufactured brick for upward of twenty-five years; he died November 5, 1884, in his eighty-fifth year; his widow survives him at the age of eighty-three. They had a family of eight children: Maria, wife of George Miller; Willimn T.; Matilda, wife of Joseph England; Cordelia, wife of Daniel Weaver; Catharine, wife of J. Q. Albert; F. Marion; Sarah A., wife of Theodore Brown, and Benjamin F. Our subject was reared and educated in his native county. He was married, May 15, 1851, to Mary, daughter of William and Rebecca (Lytle) Noble, of Jackson Township, this county, by whom he has two children: Isabel, wife of Jeremiah Blosser, and Cecelia, wife of Cassius C. Boodle. In 1851 Mr. Histe embarked in the manufacture of brick which he carried on at intervals, up to 1865, when he engaged in farming in Jackson Township, living there until the spring of 1871., when he returned to Fostoria and resumed the manufacture of brick which he continued for three years. Then for a year (1874), he was in the furniture business. In the fall of 1878 he was elected to the office of county commissioner, re-elected in 1881, his term expiring December 1, 1884. In politics he is a stanch Democrat.
