 H/ENRY H. WHITCRAFT, one of the leading business men of Carrollton, Carroll County, is a native of the county. 
• born in Monroe Township, November 30, 1840. John Whitcraft, his grandfather, 
was a native of Ireland, where he grew to man hood and married Miss Harper, who was also 
born in the Emerald Isle. They became the parents of seven or eight children, of whom but 
one is now living — Mrs. Jane Rouse, in Hocking County, Ohio. In 1814 John Whitcraft 
and his wife came to Carroll County (then a part of Harrison County), where he carried on 
farming, and where they both died, he in 1854 and she in 1834. In 1818 ho had entered a 
tract of wild land, the original deed for which. sigDed by President James Monroe, is still in 
possession of the subject of this sketch; this

CARROLL COUNTY. 



was the last piece of land entered by John Whitcraft, and lies about four miles from Lees 
ville, in Carroll County. Of bis children, John 
H. Whitcraft, the father of Henry H , was born in Harrison County, and removed with his 
father to Carroll County soon after, where he was reared and educated. He was married in 
1834 to Mary Alban, daughter of William Alban, near Canal Fulton, Stark Co. , Ohio. Mrs. 
Whitcraft' s brothers were Judge Alban, in Wis- consin, Captain Alban, in Findlay, Ohio, and 
James, who was colonel of the Eighteenth Wis- consin Infantry, and was killed at the battle of 
Shiloh. The Alban family were early settlers of Stark County, but are now scattered; one 
branch is living in Massillon, same county. 

After marriage Mr. and Mrs. John H. Whit- craft located four miles from Leesville, in Car- 
roll County. In 1853 he was elected sheriff of the county, serving until 1857; was one of the 
electoral college from this district when Hayes was elected to the presidency, and, as may be 
inferred, he was a Whig and then a Republican, at one time a member of the Know-nothin£r 
party. In 1884 he passed from earth, at the age of seventy-two years. His life was an act- 
ive one, and bis occupations various. He was a farmer and stock-dealer, and in early life was 
a drover to Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. His widow still lives in Carrollton, now aged seventy- eight years; she is a member of the Presby- 
terian Church, as was also her husband. Seven children were born to this worthy couple, as 
follows: Matilda, widow of Capt. Isaac Ulman, in Massillon, Ohio; Elizabeth, who died in 1858, 
unmarried;
 William Alban, who was first lieu- tenant of Company A, 
Twenty-fifth O. V. I., and was killed in action;

 Henry H, the subject proper of this sketch; Amanda, who died when 
ten years of age; James P., engineer on the W. & L. E. R. R. , with residence at Cambridge, 
Ohio, and Mary Martha, now Mrs. William W. Cressinger, in Brown Township, Carroll County. 

Henry H. Whitcraft was brought up on a farm in early life, attending the common 
schools of the county and the high school in Carrollton. finishing his studies at Hagerstown. 
He then took up teaching, having a school un- der his charge at the breaking out of the Civil War, when. November 7, 1861, he enlisted in 
Company A, Eightieth O. V. I., under Capt. Ulman, becoming sergeant of the company. 
He served until February, 1863, and at the battle of Iuka, September 19, 1862, he was 
wounded by a musket ball which disabled his left arm. After his discharge, in 1863, he 
rested two or three months, and then re-entered the service, receiving a position in the commis- 
sariat department, in which he served to the close of the struggle. He then returned to 
Carrollton, and for one term taught school, tak- ing care also of his farm. Under Gen. A. G. 
McCook he was for some years assessor of in- ternal revenue, and thus was Mr. Whitcraft 
occupied until 1875, when he opened out his present lumber yard, and in 1879 he pur- 
chased a planing-mill, which he continues to operate in connection with his lumber business. 
In 1868 he married, in Carrollton, Miss Naucy, daughter of Judge James McLaughlin (de- 
ceased). The McLaughlins, who were of Scotch- Irish extraction, came from western 
Pennsylvania to Fox Township, Carroll County, at an early day, but they are now much scat- 
tered. To Mr. and Mrs. Henry H. Whitcraft were born six children, viz. : Mary, now Mrs. 
W T illiam Shepard, in Carrollton; Alice, now Mrs. William Forsythe, also in Carrollton; John, 
Emma, Grace and James, all at home. Mr. Whitcraft has attained well earned success by his own efforts and perseverance. In politics he is a strong Republican.
