Not my family line, just sharing.

"JOHN C. KARR was born in Butler County, Ohio, September 25, 1824, and is one of eight children born to MOSES and ANN (WILSON) KARR, viz.: ANDREW, NANCY, ROBERT, WILLIAM, JOHN, JAMES, MATTHEW, and KATHARINDA, all of whom are dead excepting JOHN. The father was born in Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, in 1781, and died at Logansport, Indiana, in January, 1855. At the age of fifteen, JOHN C. came to this county with his father, and located two miles west of where he now lives, and in the fall of 1849 moved on his present farm. He was married, May 31, 1849, to RACHEL MOORE, who has given birth to eleven children, viz.: JOSEPH, SARAH, EMMA, MOSES, JAMES, MATTHEW, ISAAC, ROSA, JOHN, HULDAH and WELCOME. Of these, EMMA and MOSES are dead. MR. KARR's farm is located ten miles northeast of Monticello, and consists of 306 acres. In 1876, he erected an elegant two story brick dwelling at a cost of some $5,000, and the place is otherwise highly improved. He makes a specialty of raising wheat, but pays due attention to other crops and also to livestock. He has been a member of the Presbyterian Church about thirty-five years, and is an indefatigable Sabbath school worker, and a citizen of enterprise and great worth."
