BEN FLINT was born March 1, 1854, in Milburn, Ballard County, Ky., and is the second and only child living born to Dr. John and Elizabeth A. (Young) Flint, natives of Kentucky, and of German descent, and was but two years old when his father died. Ben Flint, father of Dr. John Flint, came to the Purchase about the year 1828, and settled in Ballard County, where he purchased and improved about 300 acres of land. Our subject was reared on a farm and worked by the month when he became old enough, and on shares til 1882, when he was made deputy county clerk, which position he now holds. In the meantime, however, he was engaged as traveling salesman for Terrell, Reeves & Co., of Paducah, for one year, and was also deputy sheriff in 1874 and 1878. He takes great pride in his duties, and makes an efficient officer. He was married December 20, 1883, to Miss Mary O. Turk, of Ballard County, Ky., a daughter of Noah and Lucy (Ford) Turk. Our subject cast his first president vote for Samuel J. Tilden in 1876, and still votes the Democratic ticket.
