    WM. R. KERR, farmer; P. O. Troy. Wm. R. Kerr is a direct descendant of one of our early pioneers; he is a son of William and Rachel Kerr, both of whom were born in Monroe Township. They were the parents of eight children, six of whom survive -- George G ., Sarah P., Susannah, Margaret E., Edward E., and William R., to whom this sketch is dedicated. He was born on the home farm March 30, 1852, and his occupation, from choice, has been that of a farmer. Since the death of his father, he has been the manager of the whole estate of 332 acres, and the general aspect of things betokens his ability. He was united in marriage to Miss Delilah Pence, Dec. 22,,1873, by the Rev. Wm. Jay. Thus far, two bright little children have blest their union -- Ercy C. and Mary E. Mr. Kerr is now engaged in rearing blooded stock, and will, no doubt, make it a success. He is worker, and under his auspices the farming is done in a systematic manner. Both himself and wife are members of the Christian Church, and we are also pleased to note him a thoroughbred Democrat. He possesses the characteristics of the Kerr family in a high degree, and will, no doubt, attain a prominent position, among our best farmers.
