Bruce CARR

H. W. Beckwith History (Chicago: HH Hill, 1881)

CAPT. BRUCE CARR, Farmer and stock raiser, Crawfordsville, was born in Union County, Indiana, July 8, 1841, and is the son of Thomas and Elizabeth Carr. His mother, a member of the Christian Church, was born May 13, 17997, and is still living. His father settled in this County in 1855, and resided here till his death, April 1, 1876, in his seventy- ninth year. He was a minister in the Christian Church for about sixty years. He was a blacksmith and edge-tool man, working at his trade through the week and preaching on Sunday. He was first a whig, then an ardent, earnest republican. The subject of this sketch attended Wabash College about two years, and at the age of fourteen went to California, remaining about four years. He returned, and in November, 1861, enlisted as a private in Co. K, 58th Ind. Vols. He was made orderly sergeant, and soon afterward promoted to captain. He first went to Lebanon, Kentucky, and was in the army under Gen. Buell. In 1863 his regiment veteranized, and Capt. Carr came home and raised Co. D, in the 135th Ind. Vols., for 100 days. He was mustered out in September 1864. Since the war he has been successfully engaged in farming and stock raising. He has 205 acres where he lives, and 320 in Iowa. His farm is about three miles from Crawfordsville, on See. 16. Mr. Carr is a strong republican and first-class citizen.
