G. W. FERREE was born November 3, 1855, and is the son of JOHN and MARY FERREE, of Lower Windsor. He was reared a farmer, but at the age of twenty began the trade of milling with Adam Dellinger, of Hellam, remained a year and then went to William Mundis. In 1878 he engaged in the raising of tobacco and the manufacture of cigars; in 1879 he rented Emig’s Mill near Margaretta Furnace and is still engaged in milling. He sells largely in Columbia and drives a good custom trade.

June 31, 1877, he married AMANDA, daughter of HENRY and SUSAN BRUBAKER, of Lower Windsor. His two children are HARRY, born December 13, 1878, and MARY, born June 9, 1880.

I didn't read the actual book online. This is what is written on this website.
