He was one of the organizers of the Republican Party in Yates County, and has ever since been identified with its fortunes. Commencing in 1859 he served three years as sheriff of the county. In 1863 he was appointed provost-marshal for this congressional district, and held that position to the end of the war. He has also been supervisor of the town of Benton. In 1849 Mr. Remer married Mary H., daughter of Anthony Trimmer, of Benton. Four children have been born to them, three of whom are living.
