  • Notes 
    • From “The Democratic party of the state of Ohio: a comprehensive history ..., Volume 2” edited by Thomas Edward Powell, The Ohio Publishing Company, 1913. pp. 84-85:

      ANTONE BESCHER was born at London, Ohio, January 17, 1855. His parents were Jacob and Christina (Becker) Bescher. His father was born in Germany and taught school in that country for some time before coming to America where he engaged in farming. Antone Bescher was educated in the common schools and has been a business man all his life. In politics he has been a steadfast Democrat, always giving loyal support to the Party and working for it in his quiet and effective way, but he has never aspired to public office nor sought any political favor.

      On February 22, 1882, Antone Bescher married Mary Highland of London, Ohio. Of their three children only Robert survives. He was educated in the London High School and Notre Dame College. After graduating he chose professional base ball as his occupation and is one of the best known players in America. He is at present playing left field on the Cincinnati team in the National League. He played with Lima and Dayton in the Ohio State League where he attracted the notice that brought him into the oldest and greatest league in the country.

      Antone Bescher lives in his fine residence on the corner of Main and Center streets in London, Ohio and enjoys the confidence and respect of all who know him.
