At 35 years of age Joseph became the father of John Newton Ryker in Indianapolis, IN, April 8, 1862. At 38 years of age Joseph became the father of Margaret Emma Ryker in California, MO, December 4, 1864. At 44 years of age Joseph became the father of Clifton James Ryker October 23, 1870. His biography written by my father, Parker LaBach: Joseph Holton Ryker, the son of Samuel Ryker, Jr. and Margaret Kincaid Holton, was born on the family farm near Canaan, Indiana, Oct. 8, 1826. Joseph Holton Ryker attended Hanover College, at Hanover, Indiana for a time in 1840 but had to withdraw to help his father who died in 1843, and take care of his mother and younger members of the family. He married Eliza Stewart McLeland, the daughter of Robert McLeland and Esther Benefiel, Nov. 2, 1848. After his marriage he remained on the family farm in the Canaan neighborhood until in 1878 he puchased the home on Ryker's Point across the valley south of the college. The Ryker's Point farm which he purchased near Hanover was across a deep ravine below Crowe Falls, and south of the college campus, in Sec. 13, T3N, R9E. Original patent to part of this land was issued to Christopher Harrison by the land office at Jeffersonville on Aug. 13, 1812. A patent to the SO 1/4 of Sec. 13 was issued to George Shannon at Jeffersonville on Dec. 30, 1815. Christopher Harrison sold his part to Capt. George Logan in 1817 and moved to Salem. The old brick house occupied by the Logan family for many years stood a short distance from the Ryker home. The Ryker house was a large brick English Colonial two story structure built by Prof. S. Harrison Thomson, of the Hanover College faculty, who surveyed the first "pike" from Madison to Hanover. The Ryker farm home, located on "Ryker's Point" was noted for having one of the most beautiful views of river and hills anywhere along the Ohio river. Most of the present Hanover cemetery was acquired from the western end of the Ryker farm. Joseph Holton Ryker bought the Ryker's Point farm with the expectation that he could also acquire some good river bottom land adjoining it, but this deal fell through. He found it necessary to spend a good deal of time away from home engaged in the timber buying business in order to support his family. He served in the 55th Indiana volunteers during the Civil War. He served mostly on guard duty in Kentucky, and saw no actual combat service; but exposure and other hadships of army life were too much for his none too rugged constitution and he remained in rather poor health for the remainder of his life, although he continued to work. Joseph Holton Ryker died in 1880. After his death, his widow supplemented her income from the farm by providing rooming accomodations for many Hanover College students, the last being her grandson, Carey Ryker Macdonnell, who stayed at the home on Ryker's Point during one year of preparatory work in the Academy and three of his four years of college, between 1908-1912.
