Biography* 1882  J. B. FIRESTONE, M. D., was born March 30, 1828, in Wayne County, Ohio, son of John and Rachael Firestone, natives of Maryland and Pennsylvania,
and of German descent. He was reared on a farm, but had an opportunity of attending school, and, at the age of nineteen, began reading medicine at
Congress with Prof. L. Firestone, now of Wooster University; he then attended lectures at Cleveland Medical College, concluded his course at the Wooster (Ohio)
University, graduating in 1874. He began practice in 1850 at Cannonsburg, Ohio, and, in 1855, moved to Columbia City, this county; thence he came to
Larwill in about 1859, and has secured a practice extending through a circuit of ten miles. Dr. Firestone has been an active Democrat, and, in 1858, was
called to the State Legislature, in which he served two sessions to the entire satisfaction of his constituents. In 1876, he was nominated for State Senator,
jointly for Whitley and Kosciusko, and in this Republican district was defeated by only twenty-six votes. The Doctor stands very high in the Masonic fraternity,
having attained the 32d degree—next to the highest conferred by the rites. In 1848, he was married to Sarah A. Orr, and four children were the result of
the union. Mrs. Firestone died in 1855, and in 1856 the Doctor took his second partner, Rebecca McHenry, of Van Wert, Ohio, by whom he has had one
child.2
