In early manhood Mr. Cramer united with the Baptist church in Hubbard, Ohio, and something like two years ago took membership with the Presbyterian Church at Hopkinton. He was blessed with a very genial disposition and made many friends wherever he went, and was held in high esteem in the community where he spent the most and best of his life. As a husband he was kind and considerate, as a Father , affectionate and devoted, always giving the best of his energies for the welfare and advancement of the children he loved so well.
