    Biography
    • John M. Farley was born May 28, 1858, in Milton, and received his education there in the public schools. In his early life he assisted his father, but he was still a young man. Then he went into the mercantile and millinery business on his own account, continuing it for many years, until 1907, when he sold out. His location was on Front street.

      Since retiring from commercial pursuits Mr. Farley has given his time to the management of his agricultural interests, which are extensive, and which under his supervision are proving very profitable. He assisted in organizing the Milton Board of Trade, in which he still holds membership. Mr. Farley has a modest disposition, but he holds the respect of all who know him. Socially he holds membership in Milton Chapter, Royal Arcanum.

      On Aug. 4, 1877, Mr. Farley married Ida May, daughter of John and Roaseltha (McPike) Martin, and granddaughter of Thomas Martin, whose wife was a Bryant; Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Martin were natives of England who came to this country and settled in Pittsburgh, Pa. Two daughters have been born to Mr. and Mrs. Farley: Mabel lives at home with her parents; Helen married Newton F. Osmer, an attorney of Franklin, Pa.

      Mr. Farley attends the Lutheran Church, and Mrs. Farley is a member of the Baptist Church, while their daughters are Presbyterians.
