    S. H. KERR

    S. H. KERR, farmer; P. 0. Troy. S. H. Kerr justly takes a place in the history among the legal representatives of the pioneers. His grandfather, Hamilton Kerr, came to the county in 1804, and afterward married Miss Rhoda Furnace. Their four sons are all represented in this history, except John, and the Kerr family has a record equal to that of any in the county. George Kerr is the father of the subject of this sketch, and is one of the wealthiest men in Monroe Township. Samuel H. Kerr was married to Miss Minnie E. Stewart, of Clark Co., April 2, 1874, at the residence of the bride's parents. The first year after his marriage was spent at the home of his wife's parents, and the next spring they took possession of the fine farm upon which he now resides , everything betokening his practical knowledge of agriculture. Thus far they are the parents of two children, both beautiful girls -- Blanche and Daisy. Blanche was born in 1874, and Daisy in 1878. Mr. Kerr was born a Democrat, and adheres strictly to its Jacksonian principles. He is one of our most courteous and affable young men and is especially well posted upon topics of the day. Mr. Kerr's education is first-class, his leisure being spent in storing his mind with useful knowledge.
