EMANUEL P. BENDER, of Richland Center, was born in Somerset county, Penn., Dec. 25, 1791, and Susannah (Wilt) Bender, born in York, Lancaster county, Penn., April 27, 1795. They were married Dec. 12, 1812, and had a family of seventeen children, twelve boys and five girls, of whom all but two grew to maturity. Probably the record of this family in the Civil War is unique; six of Peter Bender's sons, three of his sons-in-law, viz,: Aaron Shaffer, Simon P. Kanabbe, and Isaac N. Neher, and four of his grandsons responded to the call for volunteers.
