ACKLEY.
One of the progressive young agriculturists of southeastern Knox county is Solon B. Ackley. Without much outside assistance, the success he has achieved is due largely to his own efforts. Strong determination, persistence in the pursuit of an honorable purpose, unflagging energy and keen discrimination—these are the salient features in his career and his life stands in unmistakable evidence that success is not a matter of genius, as held by some, but is the outcome of earnest and well directed effort.
Mr. Ackley was born on August 30, 1873, on a farm in Clay township, Knox county. He is the son of John and Martha (Woodruff) Ackley. The father was born on a farm in Licking county and the mother in Knox county. Grandfather Philetus Ackley came to Knox county from Licking county in an early day and settled in Clay township in 1840 and here he developed a good farm. The father of the subject also spent his life engaged in agricultural pursuits and he became a large landowner and one of the influential men of his community. Politically, he was a Democrat, but he was not a man who sought the emoluments of public positions, preferring to lead a home life. His death occurred on April 3, 1902, his wife having preceded him to the silent land on September 19, 1891. Both are buried in the Presbyterian cemetery at Martinsburg.
Five children were born to Mr. and Mrs. John Ackley. namely; Eva, deceased; Olive married Frank Penn, of Clay township; Lucilla, deceased; Solon B., of this review; Cora is single and is living with the subject.
Solon B. Ackley was reared on the home farm, where he worked during his boyhood days, and he received his education in the country district schools and the schools of Martinsburg. He has remained unmarried and has always devoted his attention to agricultural pursuits. He has an excellent farm of one hundred and sixty acres, which he has brought up to a high state of improvement and cultivation and on which he is successfully engaged in general farming and stock raising. Nature has signally favored him in that there are six producing gas wells on his land, which are sources of no small part of his annual income.
Mr. Ackley is not a member of any church, though he is a supporter of the local congregations and, in fact, lends his aid to all movements having as their object the betterment of the locality in any way.
Mr. Ackley was one of the promoters of the Knox-Licking Telephone Company, and was president of the company for some time, its large success being due in no small measure to his able management and judicious council. He has been active in its affairs from the first. He is a public-spirited citizen, as already indicated, and is an especial advocate of good roads. He finds recreation in his automobile and other outdoor diversions. He is a good mixer and is well liked by all who know him.
