THOMAS Y. NORTHEN was born in Sumner County, Tenn., September 20, 1828, and is a son of Peter and Elizabeth (Fitzhugh) Northen, natives of the “Old Dominion” and of English descent. Peter Northen was married in his native State, and soon after moved to Sumner County, Tenn., where he bought a farm and resided until 1812; he then moved to what is now Webster County, Ky., and bought a farm near the town of Providence, where he resided until his death in 1874, in his seventy-fifty year. Thomas Y. remained on his father’s farm until he attained his majority, and then bought a farm of 100 acres adjoining the old homestead in Webster County, to which he afterward added seventy-five acres. He followed farming successfully there until May, 1884, when he sold the farm and came to Nebo, where he is living a retired life. He has been four times married; six children – four sons and two daughters – all living, are the fruits of the first two marriages. For more than thirty years, Mr. Northen was a member of the Missionary Baptist Church, but for the last four years has belonged to the old school Baptist Church. In politics he is a Democrat.
