JACOB NAUS, farmer, P. O. Forest, is a son of William Naus, who was born in Virginia, of German parentage.  He matured in his native State, but soon after went to Bedford County, Penn., where he married Christina Wean.  They lived in said county, where he followed farming.  At their death, they were nearly threescore years of age.  Of their ten children, Jacob is the oldest, and was born June 20, 1813, in Bedford County, where he married Nancy Pickering, a native of Bedford County also, where she was born Mar. 28, 1818.  They came to Ohio in 1836, settling in Richland County, but thirteen years later came to Hardin, having in the meantime owned a home and lived in Hancock County.  Two hundred and ten acres of his land lie in Hardin County, and forty in Hancock.  Although his trade is shoe-making, he has done a great deal of hard work in clearing away the dense forest of Hardin County, having attained his present financial position through his own legitimate efforts.  Mr. and Mrs. Naus have a family of six children, viz.: Joshua, Washington, John F., William H., David A. and Amanda E.
