David Greathouse
Added 2/19/99

History of Posey County Indiana, The Goodspeed Publishing Co., Chicago, 1886.
Reprinted by Unigraphic, Inc., Evansville, IN 1967 (Unknown County]

DAVID GREATHOUSE was the third of a family of seven children born to the marriage of Lorenzo Greathouse and Parthenia B. Stinson.  The father was born September 5, 1818, and was raised in Point Township, Posey Co., Ind., where he afterward farmed.  He died February 17, 1883.  The mother was born in Kentucky, September 5, 1819, and died January 23, 1884. 

Our subject was born on the farm of which he is now a resident, January 29, 1849.  His services being much required at home, his educational advantages were somewhat limited in his young days.  He remained at home with his parents until their death, when he continued cultivating the home farm.  He owns eighty acres of good land, and also farms extensively on other land. 

He and his sister live on the old homestead.  He is a member of the Masonic fraternity, and politically has always been a Democrat.  He is quite a prominent man and well respected by all.
