    • **********
      (The following is from "The Genealogy and History of the Shreve Family" - by L. P. Allen - p. 159)

      ?i?Henry Shreve was reared on a farm. When sixteen years old he engaged in the milling business in his father's flouring mill at Shreve, O., continuing at the business and that of millwright until 1856, when he moved to a farm adjoining, and platted an addition to the town.

      In 1859 he was elected County Commissioner, serving in the capacity two terms (six years). During this period he was the principle mechanic of the board attending to all the plans and specifications for all public improvements. He held the keys to the county treasury vault for twenty-four hours when it contained a large sum of money. On another occasion he closed the same office when it had been inadvertently left open by the Treasurer. Mr. Shreve held all the township offices at different times excepting Jstice of the Peace. He was ever foremost in educational matters and general public improvements.?/i?
