  • Notes 
    • Rev. Benjamin D. Hallman, "was born September 20th, 1821. On January 24th, 1843 he was married to Catharine Honsberger who was born March 16th, 1824, and died November 30th, 1886. After his marriage he moved on his father's old homestead, about a mile east of Roseville, where he still resides. Some years ago he was chosen to the ministry of the River Brethren denomination. As regards firmness of will and strict self-denial, Mr. Hillman stands unrivalled. Active, faithful, disinterested and self-sacrificing devotion for the teaching of that which he regards as truth and Gospel teachings are marked features of his character. His natural good sense and sound judgment make him one of the ablest divines of the church of his choice. His family consists of the following children:"
