  BENJAMIN F. CRONINGER - Five miles north of the city of Wauseon, in Dover township, is located the pleasant homestead farm of Mr. Croninger, who is one of the well-known and popular citizens of this section.  He was born Jan. 16, 1868, and is a son of David and Lydia (Esterline) Croninger, the former of whom was born in Stark county, Ohio, and here the mother died in 1882, and her widowed husband now maintains his home in Stryker, Williams county.  They became the parents of nine children, all of whom are residents of Ohio, their names, in order of birth, being as follows:  Amos, Margaret, Elzina, Francis, Mary E., Malinda, Elizabeth, Julia, Benjamin F., and James.  Benjamin F. Croninger secured his early education in the public schools of Fulton county, and he has been identified with agricultural pursuits from his youth to the present.  In 1902 he purchased his present farm, which comprises forty acres and which he is making one of the fine places of Dover township, being animated with a spirit of progress and having indomitable energy.  He has won success through his own efforts , and his advancement is therefore the more  pleasing to contemplate.  He is a Republican in politics, and he has been incumbent of the office of road supervisor since 1902, while he served one  year as a member of the school board.  He and his wife are members of the Christian church.  In 1888, Mr. Crominger was married to Miss Eliza First, who was born and reared in Fulton county, being a daughter of Shuman and Ellen First, who were born in Wayne county, and whose marriage was solemnized in Fulton county, in 1866.  They now reside on their home farm, near Ottokee, this county.  Mr. and Mrs. Crominger have these children, all of whom are at home:  Alonzo, Hazel, Ada, Mildred and Wilma.
