.Alexander Kridler was born in Trumbull County, Ohio, August 7, 1836, and removed with his parents to Hardin County in 1853. He acquired a common school education and remained with his parents until he rounded his twenty-fifth year of age, following which he worked upon a farm for three years. Then for three years he actively engaged in mercantile business, which he was compelled to abandon on account of ill health and returned to farming, in which he was ever remarkably successful. April 23, 1868, he was united in happy marriage with Miss Sarah A. Anderson, daughter of Joseph and Sarah Anderson. One child, Annie was born to this union October 25, 1870, and died November 9, 1881. The wife and mother departed this life during 1898. For several years he was trustee of Montgomery Township, Marion County. Following the resignation of Rev. J. A. Sutton as infirmary director, Mr. Kridler was appointed by the county commissioners to fill the vacancy, but his health failing, he was compelled to resign the office and for several years was in enfeebled health. A few months since his sister's husband, a sawmill man of McGuffey, met death by the explosion of the boiler. Since which death Mr. Kridler made his home with his sister, the bereaved widow, but despite great care and precaution his health declined until, Sunday morning at 8 o'clock, he departed this life, being aged sixty-six years, five months and fourteen days. He and his wife were devoted members of the Christian church until death, and ever endeavored to live humble, consistent Christians. He was held in high esteem for his many excellent qualities of head and heart. The remains were taken from McGuffey to Montgomery M. E. church, where Tuesday morning the funeral service was held by Rev. J. A. Sutton, following which interment will be had in the new LaRue cemetery.
