Name TypeDateDescription
NicknameAmos Erastus Mercer also went by the name of Raz.
  • Amos Erastus Mercer was born on 5 January 1821 at Redbank, Clarion, Pennsylvania, also reported as 05 Jan 1820; also reported as Ft. Mercer, Armstrong county, Pennsylvania.1,2
  • He was the son of Joseph Castard Mercer Sr and Anna Barbara Milliron.
  • Amos Erastus Mercer married Emeline Tanner, daughter of Thomas Wootten Tanner Sr and Elizabeth Christian Bain, on 7 December 1843 at Golconda, Pope, Illinois, marriage license was issued by Judge Rhaum.1,3,2
  • Amos Erastus Mercer died on 24 May 1910 at Spring Green, Sauk, Wisconsin, at age 89 Amos Mercer, a Pioneer of Spring Green, Died May 24. Died at his home in the town of Spring Green, May 24th, 1910 Amos Mercer. The subject of this sketch was born January 5th, 1821, at Redbank, Clarion county, Pennsylvania, and of a family of thirteen children he was the tenth. At the time of his death he was 89 years, 4 months and 19 days, and only one of the thirteen survived him, his brother Joseph. At the age of five years he removed with his parents to Ohio and settled near Columbus, where his father followed the trade of blacksmithing, and a few years later removed to Golconda county, Illinois. On December 7th, 1843, Mr. Mercer was married to Emaline Tanner. A notable indicent in connection with this is that the marriage license was issued by Judge Rhaum, father of the present Judge Green B. Rhaum of Minneapolis, Minnesota. Owing to hard times Mr. Mercer concluded to seek a home in the north west, and in June, 1947, with a team and light wagon, he took his wife and children and few household goods and traveled overland via Peoria and Galenda, Illinois, and Mineral Point, Wisconsin. He stopped at Mineral Point two or three weeks and engaged in lead mining, but failing to make a success of this occupation he left his family there and came north, striking the Wisconsin river at what was known in an early day as Leech's ferry, a short distance below Richland City. He crossed the river in a log canoe furnished him by Mr. Leech and went to the home of "Bob" and "Bill" McCloud, now known as the old Loomis farm, near the mouth of Bear creek, and bargained for eighty acres of land now owned by Andrew Harter. In 1852 he disposed of his farm, after making some improvements, to Elder Benton, and purchased the farm on which he resided for fifty-eight years. When Mr. Mercer came here only three men were residents - Dalby, on the D. E. Mead farm; Rodgers, on the farm where Vet Peck now lives, and Evan Jones, near where the village of Spring Green now stands. His post office was Franklin, Iowa county, now known as Highland. Deceased was the father of twelve children. One daughter died in infancy, and a son, William, was accidentally shot while hunting. Mrs. Mercer died June 23d, 1895, and he is survided by ten sons and daughters, eight of them residing in Spring Green: Erastus, Eliza Shafer, wife of Henry Shafer, M. H. Mercer, A. J. Mercer, Emaline, wife of Bradley Sherwood, Ellen, wife of Edward Sherwood, R. F. Mercer and Warren; Joseph of Tonapah, Nevada, and Matilda Crotchett, who resides with her husband at Gunemo, Kansas. When Mr. Mercer and family crossed the Wisconsin river at Old Helena at that early day nobody was there to greet them save Evan Jones, who lived near the river bank. They drove to the next house, that of Mr. Rodgers, on what is now knows as the Peck farm. Mr. Mercer then settled down to pioneer life and made a struggle against the many disadvantages of the new country. Here he worked early and late and many times thought himself fortunate when he was able to buy a few pounds of cornmeal to supply the needs of his family, yet he succeeded, and as stated above, on the farm where he died he toiled for fifty-eight years, raised his family and accumulated property, and in no instance was it ever said that he failed to conduct his business in an honorable and upright manner. He was one of nature's noblemen, and though his religious views were never fully known he was an honest man, which is the noblest work of the Almighty. The writer personally knew him for over fifty years, and is prepared to say that the poor and needy were never turned from his door, and the neighbors and friends gave testimony by meeting to pay him a last tribute of respect. The funeral service was in charge of Rev. A. H. Schoenfeld of Spring Green, on May 26th, and five sons and a grandson, as bearers, silently laid him to rest in the Spring Green cemetery beside the grave of his wife. The children desire to thank their neighbors and friends for their kindness in their hour of affliction.1,2
