Descendants of John (Abel/Ebeling) CRAMER / KRAMER

Generation No. 1

1. JOHN (ABEL/EBELING) CRAMER /1 KRAMER was born December 22, 1831 in Prussia (came with Barbara to Ogle Co. in about 1868 probably from Covington, KY area), and died February 14, 1900 in Leaf River Twp., Ogle Co., IL. He married BARBARA ANN (ERNST/ANST) Abt. 1868. She was born January 18, 1834 in Bayern, Germany (appears in 1860 Covington Co., KY census living with first husband, Dominic August, 1900 Leaf River Twp., Ogle Co., IL census living with son Louis), and died September 01, 1907 in Leaf River Twp., Ogle Co., IL.

Notes for JOHN (ABEL/EBELING) CRAMER / KRAMER:
John (Abel) Kramer apparently spelled his name Cramer at one time since both the 1870 and 1880 Ogle Co. census records have it spelled Cramer. His first name is spelled Abel in the 1870 census so that may have been his real first name or a middle name. It is spelled John Kramer on his gravestone in the North Grove Evangelical Church cemetery near Leaf River, IL. I found a marriage record for one of John's daughters, Mary, that had her father's first name spelled as Ebeling.

According to the 1870 census John and Barbara (August, Anst, Ernst) lived in Mt. Morris Township, Ogle Co., IL and the 1880 census has John and Barbara living in Leaf River Township.

Census records state he was born in (Prussia) Germany.

Census records indicate he had two children from his wife, Barbara August's earlier marriage living with them according to the 1870 and 1880 census: Morris and Anna August. (I have also seen Barbara's last name spelling as Ernst and Anst)

Since his first children (twins Mary and Lena) with Barbara were born on January 30, 1869 in IL, he probably married her in about 1868.

Barbara was born January 18, 1834 in Germany and believed to have been first married in about 1855 to Dominic August who died about 1865 in an accident. I found an 1860 census record from Covington, KY that shows Dominic and Barbara August living there with son, Morris.

Barbara's son, Morris, from her first marriage was born April 2, 1859 in Covington, Kentucky as I have found his obituary and death certificate. I have been unable to find any marriage records for John and Barbara in Ogle Co. so it is possible that they came from there together.

According to Barbara's death notice in the Rockford (IL) Morning Star, Barbara came to Ogle Co., IL with her husband about 39 years ago which would be 1868.

Howard "Jim" Cramer still lives on the Cramer farm. Records show John bought 160 acres on February 24, 1875 from Luther Hunter. Luther Hunter bought the land in 1865 from Henry Frost's widow, Phoebe who left the state. Henry Frost bought the land from Reuben O'Dell who had bought the land on May 28, 1842, probably from the government. Another 15 5/8 acres was bought by Fleming Welch from the U.S. government on May 28, 1842. John bought this land on March 29, 1895. Another 80 acres was originally bought on June 30, 1842 by Christian Rowland. John bought this land on December 6, 1882 from John Zimmerman.

Notes for JENNIE CADY HOVERLAND:
from notes of Erma Cramer:

Jennie Kramer kept her first daughter, Helen, home from school until Dorothy was able to go and they could go together to Egan School. When she entered them into school, she changed the spelling of their name from Kramer to Cramer because she thought it sounded less German. It was World War I time and the people of German heritage in the neighboring town of German Valley were under surveillance by the U.S. government. They actually changed the name of German Valley to Meeken. It was later changed back to German Valley. All of the children's school records were with the Cramer spelling.

We never really knew where Louis or Jennie attended country school. Recently a neighbor purchased a picture of pupils and teacher from the North Grove Elementary School and Jennie and her brother George are in it. It also possibly includes their younger sisters, Annabelle and Elizabeth. All of Louis and Jennie's belongings were lost in a house fire when Helen and Dorothy were in 1st grade. The family lived in a granery while rebuilding.

Jennie said she was the only girl she ever knew who was a junior. She was named after her mother, Jane Cady Brown Hoverland. She was called Jennie instead of Jane. She said the Kady on her mother's tombstone is wrong and should be Cady.

Jennie said she walked west on Otter Rd. during her last pregnancy (Jim) to care for her mother who had developed throat cancer.

Jennie would not allow playing cards in the house because Methodists of that time were against drinking, dancing, and card playing. The domino game of "42" was the social game of the time but Jennie didn't play.

Walter played basketball and baseball. Our parents were proud that Walter and I both graduated as valedictorians of our class. Walter graduated in 1928 and I in 1929. Eleanor Balluff was salutitorian of my class in 1929. Walter met Eleanor in high school and later married.
