Emanuel P. Bender, the representative of the family from Richland county, was born at Paint, Fayette county, Ohio, Dec. 17, 1833. He enlisted as a private soldier in Company I, of the Twelfth Regiment, Sept. 1, 1861, and participated in the movements of the company and regiment, - which are noted in Chapter V, - until his discharge from the hospital at Davenport, Iowa, July 15, 1864. With the exception of the time spent in the army, he has been a farmer and a blacksmith all his mature life, until his retirement from active labor about seven years ago. He is a Republican, and himself and family are members of the United Brethren church, joining that religious organization in 1860. On June 28, 1857, he was married to Miss Ruannah Custer, daughter of Abraham and Eliza (Burkett) Custer, of Somerset county, Penn., and their children in the order of their ages are as follows: Susannah, Uriah T., James A., Olive A., Simon S., Harvey L., Rebecca M., Frank E., Bertha D., Wesley J., John M., and Minnie L. Mrs. Bender's maternal family was named Berkette, and her great grandfather served in the Revolutionary War, dying at the great age of one hundred and one years.
