History of Bucks
County, Pa Volume 3 by William H. Davis
AARON SAVACOOL, was born in Hilltown township, and reared on the old homestead, acquiring his education at the local schools. Reared to the life of a farmer, he has never followed any other vocation. Until 1898 he was one of the active and progressive farmers of Hilltown township. In connection with the tilling of the soil he ran a commission wagon, carrying his own and his neighbors’ lighter produce to the Philadelphia markets. In the latter year he built himself a handsome and commodious residence in Perkasie, where he now resides, enjoying the fruits of a life of industry and usefulness. He is a member of St. Andrews’s Lutheran church, and in politics is a Democrat, but has never sought or held other than local office, having served for four years as assessor of Hilltown township. He married, November, 1857, Esther SHETLER, and to them have been born three children: Martha, wife of J. Howard GEARHART, and has four children; Susan, deceased, the latter having been the wife of Milton L, COPE, and had two children, and one son, Jacob, who married a distant cousin, Lizzie SAVACOOL, daughter of Mahlon SAVACOOL, and has one child, Esther.
