Transcribed biography of C. G. Carman

C. G. CARMAN is a native of New York and son of Morris and Ann (Gregg) Carman, who were both natives of New York, but died in this township. C. G. Carman was brought to Lake County by his parents in 1834, when four years of age, and is one of its pioneers. In his early youth, he attended a subscription school, and at the age of sixteen years he began the trade of a carpenter, serving two years, and which he followed until the war. In 1861, he enlisted in Company I, Twentieth Indiana Volunteer Infantry, for three years, and was engaged in many important battles up to Gettysburg, and was discharged at Wilmington, Del., in 1865. He was twice wounded by the same ball - in the hand and left side of upper jaw, which caused much suffering. On returning he engaged in carpentering for several years, and came to Hebron in its early days. On January 23, 1867, in White County, Ind., he was married to Miss Elizabeth O. Carson, daughter of James and L. A. Carson. By this union they have had two children - Mary and Loren. Mrs. Carman is a member of the Presbyterian Church.
