CRAMER, ENGELBERT, who is a landowner with extensive holdings, not only in Cass County but elsewhere, is ranked among the substantial men of this locality. He was born at Beardstown, Ill., November 7, 1856, a son of Jacob H. and Charlotta (Trompe) Cramer, natives of Hanover, and of Prussia, Germany. They met in the United States at St. Louis, Mo., where they married. The father was a cabinet maker and contractor, and in 1854, he came to Beardstown where he bought property and followed his trade in that city until his death about 1871.

Engelbert Cramer attended the public schools of Beardstown and remained with his parents until fourteen years old, when he began working on farms and so continued until twenty-one years old. At that time he rented land, but within eight years bought his first sixty acres to which he has added until he has 260 acres in Cass County. He also owns 160 acres in Kingfisher County, Okla., which he rents, but he operates his Cass County property himself, doing general farming and stock raising.

In 1877 he married Paulina M. Hackman, who was born in Cass County, Ill., and died November 26, 1910. She was a daughter of John H. and Louisa (Jockisch) Hackman, he born in Hanover, Germany, and she in Cass County, Ill. Mr. and Mrs. Cramer had the following children: Louisa, who married William M.

He has always taken much interest in the order and not only has held the offices of adviser, banker and manager, but he was a member of the building committee when the new hall was erected.

CRAMER, JACOB H. - Every line of business gives openings for intelligent men if they are willing to devote to it care and attention. Cass County is an agricultural community, and Virginia is the natural shipping point for a wide territory, so that through the business men of this city pass many of the commodities raised in the outlying regions. Jacob H. Cramer has for years conducted a large business handling horses and mules, generally keeping about twenty head. In connection with this line he buys and sells, and is one of the heavy dealers of this section. Mr. Cramer also handles farm machinery, wagons and buggies, and conducts a first class livery, owning twelve head of horses, and is prepared to do either light or heavy hauling.

The birth of Mr. Cramer occurred at Bluff Springs, Ill., August 31, 1880, he being a son of Engelbert and Pauline (Hackman) Cramer. While growing up on his father's farm he attended the local schools and those of Girard, Ill. For the three years following the completion of his studies Mr. Cramer was engaged in farming, and then coming to Virginia he bought the livery business owned by Bergen & Crum, and has continued to conduct it ever since, branching out as above stated.

On November 8, 1906, Mr. Cramer was married at Virginia to Winklehake, Margaret, a daughter of Winklehake, Henry and Minnie (Jokisch) . Mr. and Mrs. Cramer have four children, namely: Henry, Hazel, Pauline and Nina Louise. Mr. Cramer is a member of the Red Men, having joined that order after locating at Virginia.
