Individual enterprise, which is the just boast of the peopl of Indiana, is forcefully exhibited in the career of Jesse Darding, of Liberty township, Warren county. He is a worthy representative of an old and highly honored family and his own life in this community has been a record of which he has no cause to be ashamed. Persistent industry, definite purpose and rugged honesty have been the elements which have contributed to his success and he is eminently entitled to representation in a work of the character of the one at hand.

Jesse Darding is a native of the state of Illinois, having been born in Rankin county on the 12th of July, 1884, and is the son of george and Ida (Roe) Darding. George Darding was a native of Clark county, Ohio, where he was reared and educated, coming to Illinois in young manhood. There he followed the vocation of a farmer and was numbered among the best men of his community.

The subject of this sketch received his education in the schools of Rankin, Illinois, and his boyhood days were spent on the farm with his parents, where he not only learned the ins and outs of agricultural methods, but also imbided those lessons of industry and perseverance which have been the underlying elements of his success in life. About 1900 Mr. Darding came to Warren county, Indiana, and has been farming two hundred acres of splendid land in Liberty township, his efforts being rewarded with very favorable results. The farm is well improved and he has maintained it at a high standard of excellence in every respect. He keeps in touch with advanced ideas and methods of farming and does not hesitate to abandon old methods when the efficiency and practicability of better ways has been demonstrated. He is alive to the best interests of his community and supports all worthy movements.

Mr. Darding was united in marriage with Gertrude Mittea, and their union has been blessed with four children, Floyd, Noel, Mildred and Wilmer. The family are connected with the Christian church and are numbered among the moral, upright people of Liberty township. Because of his industry, success and genuine worth, Mr. Darding is entitled to representation in this work.
