E. R. GRIMES, farmer, P. 0. Roulette, son. of J. R. and Anna (Bennett) Grimes, was born in Towanda, Bradford
Co., Penn., in 1832, and with his parents came to McKean county, and located in Liberty township, where his father
improved a farm, and at his death was one of the well to do citizens. His family consisted of ten children: Jane,
now Mrs. E. Lillibridge, of Port Allegany; Louisa, now Mrs. B. Card, of Roulette; E. R.; Elias; Caroline, now Mrs.
G. Stickles; William W.; Abigail. now Mrs. B. G. Maine, of West Branch, Penn.; Samuel; Lester, and Ella, now Mrs.
Z. Sherwood. E. R. Grimes made his home with his parents until 1853, and then became one of the firm of Dolley
& Grimes, lumbermen, at which he continued five or six years, after which he located on the farm he now owns
in Roulette, and has devoted the most of his attention to farming, although he has also been quite extensively
engaged in the lumber business. Mr. Grimes was one of the noted hunters of this portion of the State, having a
natural inclination in that direction, and has pursued that sport every year since he was a boy of twelve years.
He has killed deer every year but one, and in the winter of 1888 killed eight; has also killed many bear and wildcats,
and is as familiar with the woods as any man living. He was married, August 16, 1855, to Eunice Burton, of Crawford
county, Penn., and their children are Helen M., now Mrs. William Lehman, of Sartwell Creek; W. R.; Delphinia, now
Mrs. Peter J. Weipper, and Eddie M. In politics Mr. Grimes is a Democrat, and has held various official positions.
