CENTRE LINES


The KREAMER Family


This column is part of a feature series which focuses on a different Centre County family each week. Five new columns will be released each month unless some technical difficulty enters the picture.

This column's focus is on KREAMER. An effort has been made to identify all persons carrying that name in the 1890 U.S. Census, using the Centre County business directory which was formed from a preliminary review of that census before the larger set of 1890 U.S. Census records was destroyed by fire. (Sadly, the postal directory does not typically provide the ages of females, but it's the best record we've got).

One book in the Pennsylvania Room of the Centre County Library in Bellefonte deals in part with a family named Kramer: it is LaRita Neeley's Elijah and Mary Ellen Kaylor Rhodes Family History: Elijah Ancestors.

There are 48 different first-name entries for Kreamer in John Blair Linn's History of Centre and Clinton County (1883). In addition, there are many references to the name in Beers' Commemorative Biographical Record of Central Pennsylvania (1898) with four (with an identifiable Centre County connection) having a separate profile: A. F. Kreamer (b. 1847, s/o Jonathan and Susannah Strohm); George W. Kreamer (b. 1862, s/o Joseph and Maria Haine); H. W. Kreamer (b. 1837, s/o Daniel and Susannah Weaver); and William Kreamer (b. 1839, s/o John and Sally Weaver).
