    Notes 
    • JOEL CRAMER, a farmer of Dallas township, is a native of York Co., Pa., where he was born February 16, 1833, being the next youngest in a family of 9 children, born to Christian and Katherine (Warner) Cramer, who were also natives of Pennsylvania.

      They removed to Seneca, Ohio, abt 1837, where they lived until their death.  Joel was reared to manhood there, received a common school education, such as the facilities of those days afforded.  When aout 17 years of age he emigrated to Indiana, first settling in Wabash, with the expectation of learning the carpenter's trade with his brother, remaining with him the most of the time for 3 years. Then for about 6 or 7 years his time was divided between this and Wabash County.  In 1856 he permanently located at what is now Andrews, where he lived until the fall of 1869, when he removed to the farm which now he resides. 

      November 16, 1856, his marriage with Mary A. Shively was solemnized, and to their union 5 children were born, of whom 3 are now living: Charles E., Gilford S., and Alpheus T.  The deceased children were: Laura E., who died the wife of Millard F. Millman, and William A. In January 1865, he enlisted in the service of his country; February, he was mustered in Company B, One hundred and Fifty-Third Indiana Regiment of Volunter Infantry, serving until the close of the war, and was honorably discharged at Louisville, Ky., October 1865. 

      Since 1869 he has made farming his occupation, and he has been very successful.  He now owns 187 acres of well improved land.  He and His Wife are menbers of the Methodist Episcopal Church,  In Politics, he is a Republican.
