Surnames: Kreamer
In January, 1861, Mr. Reifsnyder was married
to Miss Mary L. Kreamer, who was born in
Miles township, Centre county, August 16, 1837,
the daughter of Joseph and Rebecca (Reitzell)
Kreamer. They established their residence at
Millheim, and their home has been brightened by
seven children, of whom one son and one daughter
are the only survivors—Jennie K. and Joseph
W., both students at Bucknell University, Lewisburg,
Penn. Mrs. Reifsnyder died July 23,
1892, leaving a large circle of friends to grieve
with the stricken family. She was a devout
Christian and a member of the Lutheran Church.
In his political affiliations, Mr. Reifsnyder is a
Democrat, and he is regarded as a leader in his
locality. From 1862 to 1866 he served as constable
of Penn township, and during that time he
was also tax collector. In the fall of 1869 he
was elected justice of the peace, and served continuously
until May, 1896, giving entire satisfaction
to the public. He is now serving his seventh
year as county surveyor. Since 1889 his activities
in all lines have been somewhat curtailed on
account of an attack of "La Grippe," which left
him less robust than before.
