F. for 53 years.  By reason of the confidence of the people he was Post Master here for four years under the Harrison administration.  During the Civil War he was Captain of the 38th Ind. Regiment, and at the close of the war he received an honorable discharge.  He came to Clark county in 1884 and has since made this his home.

No man was more uniformly respected than Cap. Nunemacher.  He was honest and upright.

The community will remember him as a good citizen.
