      The following was excerpted from "Commemorative Biographical Record of Washington County, Pennsylvania".

      John Rollstin was born December 18, 1812, in Buffalo township, and was reared on the farm, receiving a common-school education. His first wife was Eliza Finley, of East Finley township, and to them were born two daughters: Nancy J., born in 1844, and Mattie E., in 1847. Nancy J. married John Allender, and is now deceased; Mattie E. married E. H. Stringham, of Ringgold county, Iowa, where she now resides. The mother died in 1856, and Mr. Rollstin afterward married Nancy (Adams) McKeown. The children born of this union were: Lizzie J., June 4, 1859, and Anna R., May 31, 1861. Lizzie J. was married to R. J. McCleery, of West Finley township, in the fall of 1883. She died January 16, 1888. Anna R. was married to W. H. Craig in the spring of 1887. Mr. Craig died August 9, 1891, since which time Anna has made her home with her mother.

      Politically, John Rollstin was a Republican, an active supporter of his party, and in religion a devout and consistent member of the U. P. Church. Mrs. Rollstin is also a member of the U. P. Church of Claysville, and enjoys the respect of all who know her. By the death of John Rollstin, which occurred April 6, 1864, Mrs. R. was again left a widow. Assuming the management of the farm, her business capacity and thrift enabled her not only to support herself and family, besides hiring the labor done, but to lay something by for a "rainy day."
