      H.W. Beckwith History, Montgomery County, Indiana (Chicago: HH Hill,1881) p 376
      Jere REDENBAUGH, farmer, New Ross, was born in Jefferson County,Indiana, May 25, 1824. His father, Henry Redenbaugh, was born in Ohio,and his mother Mary (DOUGLAS) Redenbaugh, was born in England, nearLondon, and came to America in 1800 with her parents. They moved fromOhio to Jefferson County, Indiana, and in 1827 came to MontgomeryCounty, bringing three children: Alonzo J., Jere, and Mary. They livedthe first year in Scott township, in a house of the rudestdescription, boards being laid across the sleepers for their bedstead.Leaving Scott township they leased thirty acres for three years ofWilliam H. Lynn, in Union township. This they cleared, for which theyreceived $100 in money. With this little purse Mr. Redenbaughpurchased eighty acres of land in Scott township, upon which theylived till his death, which occurred in 1855. Mrs. Redenbaugh is stillliving in Boone County, Indiana, at the advanced age of eighty-oneyears. She is a member of the United Brethren Church. Mr. Redenbaugh'sfather and brother were under Harrison in the war of 1812, and hisbrother George is now a resident of Fountain County, Indiana, and iseighty-seven years old. Mr. Redenbaugh was a democrat all his life.
      Jere REDENBAUGH, son of the above, has spent all his life on the farm.In 1847 he was married to Elizabeth CORN, daughter of William andSarah Corn, who came to Montgomery County in 1830, and settled inScott, then in Clarke township. There Mr. Corn died in 1859, and Mrs.Corn in 1874. Mrs. Redenbaugh was born in Kentucky. They have sixchildren: Williams, Sarah J., Eliza E., Nancy E., George W., andAndrew. After marrying, Mr. Redenbaugh leased a farm of Isaac EIston,in Union township, on which he lived five years. He then lived oneyear in Scott township. Remembering that a rolling stone gathers nomoss, he purchased forty acres, on which his present commodious housestands. He has been a thoroughly successful farmer, having added tothis forty acres till he now has the W. 1/2 of S.E. 1/4, and E. 1/2 ofS.E. 1/4 Sec. 28, and twenty acres, the E. 1/2 of S. W. 1/4 of S. W.1/4 Sec. 28. In 1868 he built his present residence, 18x36, with hall10x36, and kitchen 18x18, all brick; also large barn. He is now ineasy circumstances. He is democratic in politics, and a supporter ofprogressive movements.

      BIOGRAPHY
      Jeremiah Redenbaugh
      Portrait and Biographical Record pp445-446
      JEREMIAH REDENBAUGH is a retired farmer, living just outside the citylimits of Crawfordsville, but he still retains possession of his farm,which is located in Walnut Township, Montgomery County. Mr. Redenbaughis a son of Henry B. Redenbaugh, one of the early settlers of thisportion of Indiana, who was born born January 2, 1800, near Redden,Ohio.
      Frederick Redenbaugh, the grandfather of our subject, was a native ofGermany, came to this country some time during the last century, andfirst located in Pennsylvania, whence he moved to Ohio, and from thereto Indiana in the early days of the settlement of the state. Aftercoming here he first settled among the pioneers of Jefferson County,and then came to Montgomery County, where his life was closed at theadvanced age of' eighty-six years. He was a soldier under Gen.Harrison at the famous battle of Tippecanoe, and he served with theGeneral during the war of 1812. He married Margaret Haney inPennsylvania and they had twelve children, of whom their son William,who lives in Fountain County at the advanced age of eighty-one years,is the only survivor. The grandfather of our subject was an ardentDemocrat in his day, and was a leader in local politics.
      Henry Redenbaugh was the fifth child born to his parents, and was ayoung man when he accompanied them to Jefferson County, this state. Hethere met and married Mary Douglas, daughter of Jeremiah and Jane(Huthert) Douglas. They had come from England to this country andfirst settled near Cincinnati, whence they afterwards removed toJefferson County, this state. After his marriage Henry Redenbaughremained awhile in Jefferson County, and then came to MontgomeryCounty in 1828. He took up eighty acres of government land, which hecleared and improved, and developed it into a fine farm, upon which heremained until his death, September, 1891, at the venerable age ofninety-one years. In dying he left behind him an honorable record asan active and useful pioneer, as a good citizen, and as a desirableneighbor. He was the father of twelve children, of whom the followinggrew to maturity and are still living: John, a painter, residing atNewton, Kans.; Jeremiah; Mary (Mrs. Brush), who lives in Iowa; SarahAnn, who lives in Boone County; William B., a resident ofCrawfordsville; Joe, a resident of Mace, and Eliza (Mrs. McMullen) aresident of Boone County.
      Jeremiah Redenbaugh was born in Jefferson County, in the southern partof this state, May 25, 1824, and he was a child of three years whenhis parents brought him to their new home amid the pioneer scenes ofMontgomery County. He was reared in Scott Township, and has a distinctrecollection of the appearance of the country in all its wildness whenhe was a boy, and he can remember when Crawfordsville had but three orfour houses in it. He made his home with his father until he wastwenty-one, and then married established a home of his own with thehelp of his wife. She was Elizabeth Corn in her maiden days and adaughter of William Corn, of Clark Township, one of the early settlersof the county.
      Twelve children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Redenbaugh, of whom five areliving: Sarah Jane, wife of Thomas N. Hosier; William, George W.,Eliza Ellen and Nancy Eddenfield. Mr. and Mrs. Hosier have one child,Viola Ellen, aged nine years. The names of the deceased children ofour subject are: Joseph Henry, Albert, Mary Alice, Andrew, Charlie andJohn, and one child who died in infancy unnamed. April 29, 1888,Jeremiah Redenbaugh had the misfortune to lose his wife, who hadwalked by his side for more than forty years, and to whoseencouragement, cheerful assistance and wise counsel he was greatlyindebted. Her age at the time of her death was sixty years, six monthsand twenty-seven days She left behind her a blessed memory as a wife,mother and friend.
      Mr. Redenbaugh bought a piece of land in Walnut Township after hismarriage, and there he and his wife commenced keeping house together.He worked hard to improve it, and bought other land until his farmcomprised two hundred acres of most excellent farming land. In 1886 heretired from active business, and from the rental of his farm hederives a good income. His career as a farmer has placed him among thesubstantial citizens of the township, although he began life poor.This fact shows that beside being diligent, prudent and thrifty, healso carried on his work methodically, and was shrewd and far seeingin his management of his affairs. Politically he is a Democrat ofstanch principles. He belongs to the Montgomery County Horse ThiefDetective Association, and has always entered readily into any schemefor protecting the interests of the farmer.
