     JOHN H.WAREHIME is a prosperous farmer and stockman, residing about one mile south from Hesseltine. He was born in Iowa, on August 4, 1858, the son of Jacob and Sarah (Sutton) Warehime. The father was born in Ohio and was a pioneer of Poweshiek County, Iowa. He came to Lincoln County, Washington, in 1889 and later went to Hesseltine, where he still lives. The mother was born in Indiana, the daughter of a prominent farmer. She was raised in this county. John H. had very little opportunity to gain an education, being always on the frontier, yet by careful personal application, he is now a well informed man. He was on the ground where Lincoln, Nebraska, now stands before there was a town there. He began working for himself on a farm. In 1880, he went to Kansas and there rented land and farmed for himself until 1883, when he returned to Nebraska and took a homestead. Owing to the ill health of his wife he was forced to remove from Nebraska, and accordingly came on west, locating where he now lives, in 1888. He took government land, adding to the same by purchase until he now has one section of fertile land. The same is supplied with comfortable and commodious buildings and all other improvements needed on a first class grain farm. Mr. Warehime has a fine orchard and in everything that he does one notices the exemplification of the motto, "What is worth doing is worth doing well." In addition to the property mentioned, he owns considerable stock in the King Gold and Copper Mining Company of Stevens County. In 1881, Mr. Warehime  married Miss Sarah B. Jackson, who was born in Tennessee. She came to Illinois with her parents when young, then they journeyed on to Kansas, where she was married. Her father is Moses Jackson, a native of Tennessee and her mother, Esther Zachary, also of Tennessee. To Mr. and Mrs. Warehime, nine children have been born, named as follows. Ella, Christopher C., Moses C., Henry J., Benjamin H., Eva L., John H., Annie B., and Daisy D.
     Mr. Warehime has shown commendable industry and wise management in his labors in this county and has always manifested a progressive spirit. He is to be credited with much good labor in building up the country and bringing in settlers.
