ALFRED BRUNER, one of the early settlers of Orangeville Township, Orange
County, Indiana, was born April 5, 1815, in Breckinridge County, Ky. He
was the oldest of a family of ten children born to Adam and Nancy (Arnes)
Bruner, who were respectively of German and Scotch-English descent, the
former having been the first white child born in Hardin's Fort, in that
county. In the year 1823 his parents brought him to this State, locating
in Lawrence County, he remaining with and assisting them on the farm until
he was twenty-two years of age, receiving a very meager education.
December 29, 1836, he was married to Mary Wilson, daughter of Maj. Andrew
Wilson, who has born him ten children, of whom these six are now living:
Amanda J., wife of Moses F. Ham; Hester A., wife of Joseph Bruner; Lucy
A., who is the wife of Silas J. Halbert; Maria, who was united in marriage
to John Millis; Ellen, wife of John Hudelson, and Alfred W., who married
Flora Faucett. He is a farmer, now owning 178 acres of well-improved land
situated in one of the best agricultural districts in Orange County.
Himself and family are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, to the
support of which they contribute very liberally. In politics he is a
stanch Republican, and he belongs to the Odd Fellows' fraternity.
