FatherFrederick K. Amos b. circa 1760, d. 19 May 1844
MotherNaomi Alderson b. 16 Jul 1773, d. 19 Jun 1859
Note* James M. Amos James M Amos was born in Baltimore County, Md., January 3, 1816, and is a son of Frederick and Naomi (Alderson) Amos, both of whom were born, reared, married and had a family of eleven children born to them in Maryland, the subject of this sketch being the youngest. When about ten years of age, his parents moved to Cumberland County, Penn., and from there to Richland County, Ohio, in 1836, where they resided. The father was a man of good education and of more than an average degree of intelligence. He taught school, was a farmer and surveyor. James M. Amos was reared on a farm, received only a fair education, and remained at home until twenty-eight years old. He was married December 28, 1843 to Miss Margaret Weaver, who was born in Richland County, Ohio, December 18, 1825. To this union were born six children - John D., Martha and Susan, living; and Waldo, Naomi and William, deceased. Mr. Amos farmed in Ohio until 1853, when he came to his present place in Noble County, where he has since remained. He started a poor boy, but by industry and economy has placed himself in comfortable circumstances. He is a Democrat in politics and a prominent citizen.
