John Grubbs

History of Iroquois County. H.W. Beckwith. H.H. Hill& Co. Publishers. 1880.
p. 620, 621

JOHN W., son of John GRUBBS, farmer and stock-raiser, Onarga, is a native of Montgomery, Ohio, and was born on October 18, 1827. His parent's means being very limited, living as they were in the backwoods of a new country, he at a very early age began to work out, beginning at six cents a day. His wages were soon raised to eight cents per day, which he received all through the next season. After growing up to near manhood, he received by the month from $7 to $11. At the age of eighteen years, he became an apprentice as a wagon and carriage-maker, and completed his trade at the age of twenty-one years. He then followed journeywork, till on August 15, 1851, he married Miss LORINDA ALLEN. She was born in Butler County, Ohio, on November 9, 1834. At that time he borrowed $100 with which to begin housekeeping, and through the kindness of an old friend he began the business of his trade in a full-furnished shop, making everything from a wheelbarrow to a wagon, or anything needed on a farm. He followed the business eight or nine years, but by working constantly and till late hours at night his health became broken down, and he sold out his stock in trade, bought a farm, and engaged in farming; but having previously visited Illinois, felt an irresistible desire to own a home on the prairie, and in 1857 removed to Peoria county, Illinois, where he lost $1000 in renting a farm that wet season (by loss of crops and sickness), and the fall of the same year came to Iroquois county, Illinois, bought a farm, permanently located, and actively engaged in farming and stock-raising. He is the first man who introduced the hedge-fence raising in this county, raising an immense lot of plants for wholesale over this and adjoining counties. He now owns 414 acres of land, three miles east of Onarga village, well ditched with tile, and on which are very fine buildings. He has five children: Keziah, Phineas W., Lervy, Harvey J. and Melissa J.
