Biographical Sketch of C. S. Raymer

C. S. RAYMER, post master of the town of Ingalls and one of the prominent young men of the town, was born in Green Township on June 7, 1869, and is a son of John H. and Emma L. (Scott) Raymer, of this Township, concerning whom detailed mention is made in another sketch appearing in this biographical work. Further facts with regard to the parentage and ancestry of the subject are therefore unnecessary at this juncture.

Mr. Raymer was the eldest of the family of his parents, and he was reared on the home farm, where he was early trained in the business of farming. He received a good common school education in the seasons snatched from attention to farm duties, and continued to work on the farm with his father until his marriage, which event took place on June 29, 1890, when Amanda House, a daughter of William R. House, became his wife. She was educated in the common schools, like himself, and has many friends in the community, where she has long been known. Two children have been born to them-Violet, a graduate of the Ingalls school, who is the wife of Jadie Gregory, and Hobart, now a student in the Pendleton high school.

Mr. and Mrs. Raymer are members of the Methodist church, and Mr. Raymer is active in Republican politics in his section. In the campaign of 1912, however, he cast his vote with the Progressive party. In connection with his official duties he carries on the work of his farm, which, though small, is a well kept and productive place.
