Article--The Evening Sun--Thursday, May 11, 1972--(caption under picture) Maryland Native Robert Crawmer On 100th Birthday)---Littlestown Area Man Reaches 100--by Sheila Golden--Sun Correspondent--Littlestown--Robert Crawmer's firm handshake belies the centenarian's age. Crawmer, a lttlestown R.D. 2 resident who celebrates his 100th birthday today, was born near New Windsor, Md., May 11, 1872 and spent most of his life in that area until moving to the Littlestown vicinity in the 1940s. Crawmer shows a sharp mind and agile tongue for his age. Crawmer received a congratulatory message from Robert M. Ball, Social Security commissioner, and State Rep. Fred G. Klink (D-19th) was scheduled to present him with a citation from the State House of Representatives today. When he was 21, Crawmer married Laura Masenheimer, who was then 19, in Uniontown "sometime in 1893." The couple had four children--two boys and two girls. Roy, 76, the second oldest, is the only surviving offspring and his father has lived with Roy and his wife for the past 14 years. Laura Crawmer died 30 years ago. When a visitor mentioned to Crawmer that he was still young enought to remarry at that time, he chuckled and said, "I had one good woman and that is enough for any man." Crawmer's first job was as a hand at a neighboring farm when he was about 16. A year later he decided "I should have a trade" and went to work for six months learning to be a blacksmith. He decided because of the "scale"--the powdery dirt from heated iron which he didn't like, he'd go back to farming and do what he liked best. Crawmer recalled that during the Depression he was a Union Towhsip road supervisor, a job he held for 16 years. "Once," he said, "on the first day of January we had five feet of snow on the ground. We put out a call that we would hire 12 men, but 36 showed up. We put thme to work but it still took us nearly four weeks to get the roads cleared. At that time we didn't have the equipment to move snow like they do today." Crawmer said as far back as he can remember, getting up for work meant arising at 4 a.m. and sometimes 3:30. But he said, "it was a good life working on a farm." He retired at the age of 78 but he feels working outdoors has been responsible for his longevity because "I didn't get all that dirt (from blacksmithing) in my lungs that you get when you work around fine dust." Crawmer doesn't drink or smoke but does admit to "chewing a little tobacco" occasionally. Weather permitting, he takes daily walks around the yard with the aid of a cane. Some years ago he had a cataract operation on one eye and his sight isn't the best. he said watching television hurst his eyes and he is a bit hard of hearing, but for a 100-year-old he has a good appetite and his health is generally good. He keeps a steady regimen of walks, and gets up around 8 each morning and goes to bed about 8 each night. he is still sharp enough to proudly show visitors pictues of his fifth generation offspring and when asked what is his most pleasnt memory, he replied with a moment's hesitation--"My honeymoon!"
