Clyde C. Carlin. Through a period of three-quarters of a century Steuben County has been able to appreciate the services of the Carlin family, at first as pioneer farmers and homemakers, later as influential figures in educational and other phases of professional and public affairs. Of those still living in the county there are Robert V. Carlin, who for many years was superintendent of education in the county, and his son Clyde C., long one of the prominent members of the bar in Angola.

The family was founded here by Robert Carlin, who was born in one of the eastern states in 1806. He married Sarah Perkey, whose birth occurred in 1811. They were early settlers in Wayne County, Ohio, and from there came to Steuben County, Indiana, in 1840 and located in the woods of Richland Township. They made a home there and Sarah Carlin died in 1865 and her husband in 1868. Of a family of thirteen children twelve reached mature years.

Robert V. Carlin was born in Wayne County, Ohio, February 26, 1834, and was six years old when brought to Steuben County, where he was reared and educated. After the limited advantages accorded by the district schools of Richland Township he entered at the age of eighteen Mount Union College at Alliance, Ohio, where he came under the instruction of the noted Professor Holbrook, afterward founder of the National Normal University at Lebanon, Ohio. Robert V. Carlin graduated from Hillsdale College in Michigan in 1866, and during the next four years was principal of the Angola High School. In 1870 he was elected county recorder, and filled that office with characteristic efficiency for eight years. He then resumed teaching, and in 1883 was elected county superintendent of schools and filled that office continuously for fourteen years. His is one of the longest records in the educational annals of Steuben County. For the past twenty years he has lived retired. He is a republican, is affiliated with the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and he and his wife both active members of the Christian Church.

March 31, 1868, Robert V. Carlin married Miss Maria Kinney. She was born November 18, 1831, daughter of Joseph J. and Emily (Hitchcock) Kinney, natives of Vermont, who moved to Ohio in 1830 and to Steuben County, Indiana, in 1851. Joseph Kinney died in 1853 and his wife in 1879. Robert V. Carlin and wife had two children, Emily dying in infancy and Mrs. Carlin died April 8, 1916.

Clyde C. Carlin was born at Angola, July 28, 1870, and had a liberal education as the foundation for his professional career. He attended the Angola High School, graduated in 1888 from the Tri-State Normal College at Angola, and in 1892 received his diploma from his father's alma mater, Hillsdale College. He was associated with E. O. Rose in founding the Angola Magnet in 1893, and was connected with that paper about a year. He then diligently pursued the study of law with William M.Brown, and in 1898 formed a partnership with his preceptor, and for twenty years has been one of the busy lawyers of Steuben County. Mr. Carlin is a republican, is a member of the Masonic Order and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows, and has been one of the influential men in his community. October 1, 1911, he married Gertrude Hauver, of Angola, daughter of Henry Hauver, a former county sheriff., Subject=Robert Vance Carlin6
