Christian and Anna (Shick) Rimer, natives of Northampton and Clarion counties respectively. They were married in the latter county, where they continued to reside until 1855 when they moved to Dayton, Armstrong Co., Penn., where during the last years the father lived retired. The mother died in 1845 at the age of twenty-nine years, and was buried at Churchville, Clarion county. She left the following children - Elizabeth, now the wife of Christ Space, a stone mason and farmer living near New Bethlehem, Penn; David who married Polly Felt, a sister of our subject; and is engaged in farming in Clearfield county; Nancy J., deceased wife of Z. Space, who conducts a meat market at New Bethlehem; Anna S., wife of our subject [Rev. Russell Madison Felt]; Catherine, deceased wife of James A. Gorley [Gourley], a farmer of Warren county, Penn.; Robert A., a farmer of Armstrong county; and William, an agriculturalist of Big Run, Pennsylvania.

After the death of his first wife, Christian Rimer married Margaret Beers, by whom he had seven children, namely: Mary A., wife of James Schrecengost, of Armstrong county; Jacob, who is engaged in the bee business in that county; Priscilla, wife of Charles Frye, a merchant of Illinois; Maria, wife of James Terp, a machinist now engaged in the foundry business in Du Bois, Penn; Lydia, wife of a Mr. Smith, a wagon maker of Armstrong county; Ala, wife of John Gray, a farmer of that county; and John, a merchant of Illinois. The father was an extensive land owner, and was a very successful agriculturalist. He was a prominent and active member of the Presbyterian Church, and had the respect and esteem of all who knew him. He departed this life June 8, 1889, at the age of seventy-eight years, and was laid to rest in the cemetery at Dayton, Armstrong county.
