A. C. Hight
Born 1832
A. C. HIGHT, farmer, Section 4, P.O. Frankfort, Born in 1832, in Williams County, Ohio. He removed at twenty to a farm in Allen County, Ind., and thence to Jones County, Iowa, in 1854. In 1862 he enlisted in Company B, Twenty-sixth Iowa Volunteer Infantry, and served under General Blunt, in Arkansas. At the capture of Arkansas Post a piece of shell cut away three fingers of his hand, which wound laid him up for six months. Re-entering the service, he drove ambulance up to the engagement at Yazoo Pass, when a ball through the calf of his leg ended his military service, and honorably retired him, a pensioner. Returning to Maquoketa, Iowa, he came in 1872 to his present farm in Clear Fork Township, Marshall County. Mr. Hight has done good work here, as 130 of his 160 acres are under cultivation, and his ten acre orchard of all kinds of fruit is one of the largest and best in the county. His wife was Lucy Battles, married in Jones County, Iowa, where were born their two eldest children, Asa E., and Fannie E., the youngest, Rhoda O., being born in Maquoketa. Mr. Hight and family belong to the United Brethren Church.
