Not my family line, just sharing.

"ROBISON FLEEGER was born in Juniata County, Pennsylvania, December 7, 1829, and is the eldest of the five living children of MICHAEL and ELIZABETH (McCRUM) FLEEGER, the former a native of South Carolina, and the latter of Pennsylvania. MICHAEL FLEEGER was born in 1795, and is now probably the oldest man in White County. He is a Tailor, and was married in Juniata County, Pennsylvania; he came to Princeton Township, this county, in 1852, and worked at his trade until 1879, and then retired to private life. He served through the war of 1812, and is the only pensioner of that war in the county. His wife died in the fall of 1863, a member of the Presbyterian Church. ROBISON FLEEGER, from the age of twelve to twenty, worked out on a farm and then chopped wood, at 40 cents per cord, for three years, in his native State; then farmed on shares for two years. In October, 1854, he came to Princeton Township, this county; bought 120 acres of unimproved land, and wrought out a farm, which he still owns. He did a great deal of hunting and trapping, generally clearing from $400 to $500 during the winter, and he has also been quite extensively engaged in bee culture, and has amassed a handsome property, although he lost $6,000 a few years ago by becoming surety for a neighbor. October 14, 1851, he married ISABELLA LOGUE, a native of Canada, who has borne him five children, three of whom are still living. In April, 1881, MR. FLEEGER came to Reynolds, where he is now engaged in the grain and coal trade and in the sale of agricultural implements. In politics, he is a Republican, and for three terms he served as Trustee of Princeton Township, and is at present Trustee of Honey Creek."
