"RICHARD IMES, was born in Greene County, Pennsylvania, June 18, 1821, and is a son of RICHARD and MARY (SHIDLER) IMES. When RICHARD was six years of age, his father died, and he alternated between school and the farm until he was fifteen, when his mother sold the farm and removed to White County, Indiana, where she purchased land, which RICHARD superintended. He was married, November 23, 1843, to MARY A. ORR, born Greene County, Pennsylvania, November 6, 1816, to which union were born eight children - MARY E., October 24, 1844; GEORGE W., October 24, 1846 (deceased); JASPER N., August 11, 1848 (deceased); LETITIA M., February 7, 1850 (deceased); MELISSA J., March 17, 1852 (deceased); MELINDA C., August 21, 1853 (deceased); ALICE C., November 2, 1855; and SUSAN, May 23, 1858 (deceased).
