  JOHN M. STULL was born in Liberty township, Trumbull county, Ohio, May 16, 1823.  His father, James Stull, was of German descent.  His mother's maiden name was Catharine McIlree, although both in Scotland, she was of Irish Origin.  His parents removed from Liberty to Farmington when he was six years old.  When he was twelve years old his father died, leaving him to care for and be cared for by his mother.  At the age of nineteen he went to learn the blacksmith's trade with Abraham Anxer, of Hamden, Ohio.  He worked with Anxer two years ad then returning to Farmington opened a shop there.  About six months after his return to Farmington, while shoeing horse by lamplight, he received injuries which disabled him from longer pursuing this occupation.  Young Shull had, up to this time, only a very limited education; but, his body disabled, his intellect began to prepare to assert itself. He attended Farmington academy, studying during the summer, and teaching in the South in the winter.  While in the South he established at Nashville, Tennessee, a business college.  He began his law studies at the age of twenty-seven, with Judge Barbee, of Campbellsville, Kentucky.  His studies were continued through the various vicissitudes of a southern schoolmaster's life, until his return to Ohio.  He was admitted to the bar of Warren, in May, 1853.  The same month he was married to Florilla W. Wolcott, daughter of Deacon Lewis Wolcott, of Farmington.  He immediately began the practice of his profession at Warren.  He has been associated in partnership with Hon. G. M. Tuttle, Hon. M. Sutliff, F. E. Hutchins, and Hon. C. E. Glidden.
    
In the fall of 1858 Mr. Stull was elected prosecuting attorney of Trumbull county.  He served in that office one term at that time, but four years later was re-elected, holding the office two terms longer.  In the spring of 1858 he was elected mayor of Warren.  He has ever been one of the most active and influential politicians of this section.  During several of the most exciting campaigns in the experience of the party he was chairman of the Republican central committee of his county.  For the last ten years he has been an active worker in the Methodist Episcopal church.  To him and a few others of similar liberality and activity this denomination is largely indebted for the magnificent church edifice, which is the pride of its congregation in Warren.
