C. C. NESBITT is built just right for a life insurance insurance agent.
He know how to talk and is not afraid to tell what he knows about his
business. He was born in Grant county April 10, 1853, and is a son of
F. S. Nesbitt and Elizabeth Boyers, and was raised in Williamstown. He
attended the common schools and obtained a fairly good education. Early
in life he went to work for himself as a clerk in a store and followed
that line of business for a good many years. He was then for a while
Deputy County Court Clerk and Deputy Circuit Court Clerk for a good long
time and was then for ten years book keeper in the Bank of Williamstown
and the Grant County Deposit Bank. At the death of Dr. W. G. Frank he
was elected cashier of the Grant County Deposit Bank and served in that
capacity for six years and more. When he retired from the bank he
engaged exclusively in writing life insurance for the Equitable Company.
He has been an active agent for the Company for more than twenty years
and last year wrote them risks for more than $100,000.00. While he is
the district manager he is also the local agent and personally drums
Grant, Pendleton, Harrison and a few neighboring counties, while he has
agents in many other counties. His business is growing all of the time.
October 7, 1886, he was united in marriage to Miss Zella O'Hara, a
daughter of Charlie O'Hara, of Dry Ridge. They located and have lived in
Williamstown from that day to this. Two children, both girls, have
blessed this union, Anna E. and Martha Corrine, both beautiful and
precocious children. Mr. Nesbitt and his wife are both member of the
Methodist church and he is an Odd Fellow.
