Reuben James Farringer
Birth: Sep. 7, 1836
York County
Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Aug. 11, 1932
Mount Morris
Ogle County
Illinois, USA

Reuben James Farringer, was born on September 07, 1836 and died on August 11, 1932 son of Frederick Farringer and Rebecca Margaretta [Schmedt] Farringer. He lived to be almost 96 years of age, he was my Great Grandfather.

He served in the home guard from 1861-1864. Then he enlisted on July 09, 1864 and reported for duty Camp Curtain, PA. He was in Co. D. of 195th Regiment of PA. Vol. Infantry were he was injured. He went home to live a lone full life and with lots of family.

After his first wife died (Lovinia [Fry] Farringer) he remarried to Sarah Elizabeth Clemens-Sutter. He was a plaster by trade. After Sarah died he went to a rest home in Mount Morris, Ogle Co. Illinois. When he died in 1932, he was buried beside Sarah.

The Star in picture with head stone is Civil War Marker. I wish I could have known him. For I bet he was very wise.
