Nicholas Remlinger, "Manlius, was born near Manlius Station, Oct. 8, 1833. Michael, his father, was a native of Alsace, now a part of Germany, and came to this country in 1832, locating on a piece of timber land of 25 acres in the town of Manlius, where he reared his family of seven children and spent the balance of his days. He died in Dec. 1852, aged 71 years. Nicholas, the youngest, and Mrs. Rauch, of Syracuse, are the only children now living. Nicholas was given a good common school education, then engaged in farming, which he has since followed with the exception of a few years spent on the railroad. In 1863 he took charge of the Henry Reals farm of 200 acres at Manlius Center, which he has since conducted. Mr. Remlinger and his family are members of the Catholic church at Manlius Station. In 1861 he married Jane Walk, who died Sept. 22, 1869, leaving two children: Amelia, wife of Frank Cesters, a railroad man of Manlius Station; and Charles A., a railroad man, of Geneva. April 8, 1870, Mr. Remlinger married Elizabeth Cesters, of Auburn, by whom he has seven children: Augusta J., Jennie, John, Frank and Fred, twins, Willis and Matthew, all living at home."
