  Lewis Twp. -
S. B. UTTER, farmer, P. O. Higginsport, is a son of Washington B. Utter, who was a native of Clermont County, Ohio, where he was raised and married, but died in Feesburg, Lewis Township.  He married Amanda Buchanan, a descendant of the line of ancestry to which President Buchanan belonged.  She was a native of the same county as her husband, and ever remained in the same.  Sylvester is the only child; he was born in 1838; in Clermont Co., Ohio, and when two years old was left without a mother's love and affection, and, when eight years of age, his father also died, at which time he fell into the hands of an aunt of his father, with whom he remained until eleven, since which he has been entirely dependant upon himself.  In 1865, he married Mary J., daughter of Samuel Waterfield, whose history appears in this volume.  She was born in Lewis Township in 1840.  The issue of this marriage is three sons, viz., Charlie, Jesse and James.  After Mr. Utter married, he rented a farm until 1873, when he associated with his brother-in-law, James Waterfield, and purchased a farm, since which he has been a land-owner, and at present has a farm of 195 acres in Mead's Survey, No. 1661, and in R. C. Jacob's No. 1649, the result of his own efforts.  It is under good cultivation, and well improved.  Mr. Utter started a poor boy, but, by judgment and energy, has risen to be one of the well-to-do as well as worthy citizens.  During the war of the late rebellion, he was stopping in Illinois, where, on July 19, 1863, he enlisted in Company F, Seventy-first Illinois Volunteer Infantry, serving four months.
