One of the thrifty young farmers of Warren county, Indiana, who believes in keeping abreast of the times in his chosen vocation is Oscar Rinehart, of Warren township, and, having had such principles as his guiding stars all through life, he has been successful from the first, not winning success in a meteoric fashion, but by gradually ascending the rugged hill that leads from the low lands to the upper strata of rarefied air, where a man feels that he has lived to good purpose.

Mr. Rinehart was born on April 13, 1870, at Attica, Indiana, and is the son of Joe and Sarah (Gee) Rinehart. The father came to this locality from White county, Indiana, and was in the pottery business, at which he made quite a success here in the earlier days of the county's history, and he became an influential and well known man of Attica, doing much for the permanent upbuilding of that place, and he was highly respected by all with whom he came into contact. The mother of the subject still makes her home in that town, being now advanced in years.

Oscar Rinehart grew to manhood in his native town and received his education in the old Wiggins school house, also attended the city schools and received a fairly good education, for he always applied himself very carefully to his text-books. When a young man he worked on the home farm for some time and later followed railroading for a short time. He has been engaged in general farming for himself for the past four years, successfully operating one hundred and twenty acres, about three miles from Independence, Warren county.

Mr. Rinehart was married to Anna Lief, and they have become the parents of six children.
