SAMUEL IMEL


Source: H. W. Beckwith History of Montgomery County, Indiana (Chicago: HH Hill, 1881) p 385
Samuel IMEL was born in Virginia, and Susan Imel, his wife, was a native of North Carolina. They emigrated to Ohio in an early day, then to Wayne County, Indiana, and in 1836 settled on the N. 1/2 of N. W. 1/4 Sec. 31, and E. 1/2 of S. W. 1/4 Sec. 30, Walnut Township, Montgomery County, Indiana. This farm they improved. Mr. Imel died in 1861, at the age of sixty-one years, and his wife departed to her rest in 1871, and aged seventy years. Mr. Imel was an early Whig, and later a democrat. Mrs. Imel was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, and a consistent Christian lady. Their children numbered seven, three of whom are living: one in Iowa, one in Boone County, Indiana, and Frederick Imel, a resident of Walnut Township, and subject of this sketch. He was born January 8, 1828, in Wayne County, Indiana, and came while young to Montgomery County. Here he attended the pioneer log school and learned to cipher a little, but his education was mostly derived from sources outside the schoolroom. He has made farming his life work. Mr. Imel was married in 1854, to Martha J. HARRIS. They have had two children: Samuel S., now a young man, and a babe (deceased). They are members of the Methodist Church. Mr. Imel is independent in politics. They have seen great changes in their years, and have contributed their toil toward the present development.
