Another deserving representative of the well known and popular REMLEY family is the energetic young farmer and stock raiser of Wayne Township, Harry C. REMLEY. His people have been well established in Montgomery County since the early days, and they have borne excellent reputations as private citizens, business men and advocates of good county government, and they have done much in the general upbuilding of the locality. Our subject is living on the old homestead, which he has kept in fine condition, fully appreciating the privilege and he is justly deserving of the continued success that the years have brought. Mr. Remley was born June 14, 1873 in Wayne Township, Montgomery County. He is a son of Ambrose Remley and wife, a complete sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this volume. Harry C. Remley grew to manhood on the home farm and spent his boyhood days in much the same manner as other sons of farmers, assisting with the crops in summer and attending district schools during the winter months, at Wesley, in his native township. On Feb 22, 1898, he celebrated the anniversary of the birth of the father of his country, by getting married, selecting as a life partner, Alice L. BROWN, who was born in Montgomery County and here she grew to womanhood and received her education in the public schools. She was the daughter of Solom and Mary J. HAMILTON Brown, farmers of union Township, this county, near Roberts Chapel. The father, who was a veteran of the Civil War and a Republican died several years ago. To Harry C. Remley and wife have been born one child, Mary Helen, whose birth occurred March 11, 1908. Mr. Remley has always followed farming and stock raising and taking naturally to these lines of endeavor and having had a good preceptor in the same in the person of his father it is not to be wondered at that he has succeeded. He is living on his father's farm, which he has kept well cultivated and well improved. He has built all the fences now seen o the place, remodeled the barns, built several sheds and many other changes which have enhanced the general appearance of the place. He keeps an excellent grade of live stock and poultry on the farm and everything round about denotes good management. Politically, he is a Republican, but he has never been very active in public affairs. His wife is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church. - typed by kbz
