Clarence Bader of Browning Twp. is making plans to move to Hancock Co., where he lately purchased 150 acres farm of W. R. Cochean, two miles north of Hamilton, where he expects to make his home. He has already moved his threshing outfit and is threshing the neighborhood grain crop.
The dwelling on his new farm is a pretentious stone building erected about civil war time and is in excellent state of repair.
Mr. Bader is a farmer who will be missed in Browning Twp., where he took an active part in community and religious affairs. [Rushville Times, August 18, 1937 - Sub. by Sara Hemp]
*Note: I was told while growing up that this house was on the Underground Railroad during the Civil War and had many hiding places in the walls. Sara Hemp
