Birth: 1869
Death: 1950

Born in 1869, son of Samuel Quinton Remster and Susannah A. (Davis) Remster (Memorial #29719059). Older brother of James Edward Remster (Memorial #51532348).

A story that has been in our family for generations is that Frank and two or three of his brothers (one who was James Edward), who finding that their church pastor (in Indiana) was having an affair with one or more ladies of the church, and no one doing anything about it, decided to take matters into their own hands. One Sunday morning, they walked down the aisle and took the pastor outside where they proceeded to tar and feather him. Then the course of action dictated that they remove themselves from the area (Fountain County) without delay, going to South Dakota, where the story goes, they were burned out of the farming business two straight years by the Indians, the last of which saw the brothers leaving South Dakota (one on a bicycle) to Iowa where Ed and Frank remained while the others went back to Indiana to see if any charges had been filed (none were). The two brothers stayed in Indiana, Ed and Frank stayed in Iowa. Both went back to Indiana on visits, but not to live."
