From "Pictorial and Biographical Memoirs of Elkhart and St. Joseph Counties, Indiana," 1893

The father, Adam Anglemyer, was born in Berks county, Penn, in 1777, and was one of ten or twelve children. He was of German descent and a descendant of a prominent family. His death occurred in 1858, when eighty-one years of age. His wife, who was also a native of Pennsylvania, was born in 1783, and died in 1876, when nearly ninety-four years of age. She was an eye-witness of the funeral procession og Gen. George Washington. This old couple were married in their native State and made their home there for a number of years, eight of their children being born there. Mr. Adam Anglemyer lost his home in the Keystone State by going security. Thinking to better his condition, he emigrated with his family, in 1821, to Columbiana county, Ohio, where for a number of years he lived on a rented farm. He was a cripple, but worked at his trade, tailor, managed to get along and finally secured a home. During his early life he as a member of the Presbyterian Church, but at the time of his death was a German Baptist. He was a man devoted to his home, firm in his ideas, and public spirited and enterprising. In early life his wife was a Presbyterian, but she also became identified with the German Baptist Church.
