Richard Storer, deceased, formerly a farmer on section 11, Garden Plain Township, was born Feb. 23, 1816, in Washington Co., Pa. He was the son of John and Elizabeth (Holecraft) Storer, and was brought up on his father’s farm. He married Margaret Curry, a native of Pennsylvania, born Dec. 29, 1818. They resided in Allegheny Co., Pa., after their marriage, until their removal in 1853 to Whiteside county, where they settled on the southeast quarter of section 11, in Garden Plain Township. Mr. Storer was a skillful and industrious farmer, and pushed his agricultural operations with success. Mrs. Storer lives on the homestead. She is the mother of two daughters,--Elizabeth, wife of J.B. Kearns; and Adeline, who married A.J. Stowell, of whom a sketch appears elsewhere.
