     MICHAEL VELTEN, who has been a resident of Mercer County for the past 16 years and is engaged in the harness and hardware business at Fort Recovery, was born in Rheinpfalz Byn, Germany, January 10, 1872, and is the son of Jacob and Catherine (Welthelm) Velten, who were natives of Germany and lived there all their lives. Jacob and Catherine Velten were the parents of five children, namely: Catherine, wife of Carl Miller; Michael; Peter, who married Philomena Stuby; Elizabeth, wife of Peter Heinrich; and Nicholas, who married Alvira Riser.
