JEREMIAH C. CARESS, of Brown Township, is a native of Washington County,
Ind., and was born October 10, 1838. His parents were Peter and Rachael
(Worrall) Caress, who raised a family of eleven children, and of which
Jeremiah was the third. The father was a native of Kentucky, and the
mother of Indiana, the former's birth occurring in January, 1812, and the
latter's April 30, 1819, and their deaths November 16, 1851, and October
12, 1874. Our subject received a common school education and remained at
home on the farm with his parents until they died. Throughout life he has
been engaged in agricultural pursuits with success, as his farm of 250
acres indicates. He devotes considerable attention to stock-raising, and
in politics is a stanch Democrat. He usually is active in the public
affairs of the county, and in his township has been three times elected
Justice of the Peace, which office he is now holding.
