Daniel Upson Budd

DANIEL UPSON BUDD,  retired farmer, was born March 2, 1813, and is the youngest son of William and Drucilla Budd. He has spent his whole life in Sharon, and resides on a part of the land entered by his father. He has been twice married, first to Lucy Ann Hull, of Trumbull County, Ohio, December 29, 1836. Two daughters were born of this marriage: Sarah E. (wife of William Matthews, of Kansas City, Mo.), and Emma V., wife of A. S. Service, of Sharon. Mrs. Budd died January 19, 1883, and he was again married, October 8, 1886, to Mrs. Sophronia Waldorf, daughter of William and Lucretia Chew, of Brookfield, Ohio. Mr. Budd has followed farming all his life, and is the oldest continuous resident of Sharon, which borough he has seen grow from a small hamlet to its present flourishing dimensions. Since attaining his majority he has never missed casting his vote for the national nominee of the Democratic party.
