Emerald Twp. -
JOSIAH UPTHEGROVE, a successful farmer and stockraiser, was born in Highland county, Ohio, March, 1848, the son of Andrew and Susanna (Rollins) Upthegrove, freedmen of Virginia and Carolina.  The mother died when her son was but eighteen months old.  He was left to the care of his uncle Randal Upthegrove, where he remained until he was eighteen years of age.  After working a short time, he, in the company with his uncle John, came to Emerald township, and remained until 1865, when he went to Greene county and married Miss Carrie E., the daughter of Burt and Martha Kirk, of North Carolina, the latter of whom was a slave.  Six children were born to this union, named Charles H., Mattie J., Fannie H., Mary E., Thomas A. and Minnie D.  Mrs. Upthegrove died June 6, 1885, of quick consumption.  Her husband, by hard work, has gained property and prominence in the county where he resides, and at present is the possessor of one hundred and twenty acres of fine land, well improved.  In connection with his farming, Mr. Upthegrove, who is a lover of fine horses, is a stock grower.  He is a member of the U. B. church, and in politics is a stanch supporter of the republican party.
