Daniel Bench
Date: c. 1842
Daniel Bench is one of the leading farmers of the progressive agricultural region of Johnson County, Ark., and as he was born in the State of Ohio he possesses many of the characteristics of the natives of that State, among which may be mentioned pluck, perseverance, intelligence and honesty. He was taken from that State when an infant, and was reared to manhood in Indiana and Missouri, coming to Johnson County, Ark., in 1842, settling on a piece of land in this township which he improved and cleared. Here he remained hard at work until the bursting of the war cloud which had for so long a time hovered over the country, when he took his family and moved into the Indian Territory (the Choctaw Nation), where he remained until the close of the war. He returned to Arkansas about one year later, sold his property and purchased a place at Mulberry and this farm continued to cultivate for twelve years. He then sold out and came to his former place and purchased 160 acres of land to which he has since added from time to time until he is now the owner of 300 acres and has 110 under cultivation. His principal crops are cotton and corn, and this year he has devoted twenty acres to cotton which promises well. His buildings are all in excellent condition, and as he was reared to the work which he is now following be thoroughly understands every detail of the work and has been successful. He was born in 1825 and in 1844 was married to Miss Martha A. Prim by whom he has become the father of eleven children. He is a man who brings, tact, energy and skill to his assistance in the conduct of his property and as a result is far more successful than many of his neighbors. He is liberal in his contributions to public affairs and is well preserved in both mind and body, notwithstanding the fact that he is sixty-five years of age.
