CORNELIUS A. CARRINGER, miller, P. O. Long's Stand, was born in Mercer County, Penn., December 7, 1834, and is a son of Henry and Nancy (Feathers) Carringer, and grandson of Martin Carringer, a native of Germany, who settled in what is now Perry Township, Mercer County, in 1799. He was a soldier in the Revolutionary war, serving under Gen. Anthony Wayne. Our subject was reared on a farm and followed agricultural pursuits in Mercer County till 1875, when he came to this county, locating in Woodcock and purchasing the property known as the Old Dickson Grist Mill, the first built in this county, and has followed milling ever since. Mr. Carringer has been twice married, on the first occasion February 10, 1859, to Nancy E., daughter of Wesley and Nancy (Donaldson) Green, of Lawrence County, Penn., who bore him four children, two now living: Nanie J. (wife of Charles Shrubb) and Clara E. (wife of Ira Wygant). He was again married, July 17, 1871, to Nancy E., daughter of William and Elizabeth Donaldson, of Lawrence County. Since purchasing, Mr. Carringer has built an addition to the mill, 16x28, making the total size 28x53 feet. He is a member of the K. of H.; in politics a Republican.
