Peter Wilson Strader
Birth: Nov. 6, 1818
Death: Feb. 25, 1881

U.S. Congressman. Born in Shawnee, Warren County, New Jersey, he moved to Lebanon, Ohio with his parents in 1819 when he was a child. He attended the common schools and later worked in a printing office. Strader moved to Easton, Pennsylvania and became a clerk for a riverboat company. He returned to Ohio and moved to Cincinnati in 1835 and entered into the steamboat business as a clerk and engineer for 13 years. In 1848, he became the general ticket agent for the Little Miami Railroad Company until 1867. Elected as a Democrat to represent Ohio's 1st District in the United States House of Representatives, he served from 1869 to 1871. As a Congressman, he was a member of the Committee on Coins, Weights, and Measures. Strader was not a candidate for renomination in 1870 and resumed his business interests in Cincinnati. He was also a member of the Board of Trustees of Pulte Medical College. He moved to Ashtabula, Ohio in 1876 and died there at his residence in 1881 when he was 62 years old. Strader Avenue in Cincinnati is named for him. He was initially interred in Section 98 at Spring Grove Cemetery and was removed to Section 28 in December of 1881. (bio by: K Guy)
