    George Kerr, fanner; P. O. Troy. The last man of the Kerr family to place on our list is as well known in this county as any man now living in it; he was, brother to Newell, John and Furnace Kerr, and it may be proper to remark that the Kerr and Miller families are the best represented, in this work, and the most wealthy farmers in Monroe Township. George was born July 16, l831, he married Miss Nancy J. Culbertson in 1853; they are the parents of Samuel H., Otto and Otho (twins) Samuel was born Oct. 18, 1856; Otto and Otho, Jan. 17, 1858; the other child died in infancy; Samuel is the husband of Miss Minnie E. Stewart, and Otto married Miss Elizabeth Northcutt. Mrs. Nancy Kerr was born March 8, 1836. Mr. Kerr owns 500 acres in this county, part of which is in Concord Township; the extreme neatness of this farm must be seen to be appreciated; evidences of wealth abound everywhere. For the past twenty-one years, he has been connected with our public schools, and his long continuance in this capacity is evidence of his good judgment; he has also been Master of Monroe Grange for the last seven years, and is one of the charter members of Coleman Commandery, K.T., No. 17 these are honors of which his children may well be proud, and gladly are these laurels incorporated in the family biography; himself and brothers are acknowledged leaders of the Democratic party in their neighborhood, and better men cannot be chosen as standard-bearers.
