Bishop Crumrine

Bishop Crumrine, attorney at law, was born in Washington County, Pa., February 9, 1841.

He entered Jefferson College, Pennsylvania, in 1859, and remained there until the fall of 1861, when he enlisted in the Eighty-fifth Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, 85th Regiment for three years. That regiment having the maximum number, he was not mustered in it, and in August, 1862, he enlisted again in Company G, Fourth Regiment Pennsylvania Artillery, Independent Battery G and was mustered out July 25, 1865, having been during his term of service on detached service a great part of the time.

On his return from the army he read law with his brother Boyd Crumrine, of Washington, Pa., and was admitted to practice there in 1867. In October, 1868, he removed to Topeka, Kan., where he was engaged in surveying for about one year. He was then appointed as a Justice of the Peace to fill a vacancy for one year, and was then elected Justice of the Peace for one year. Since then he has been engaged in the practice of the law in that city. He was married in August, 1872, to Helen L. Adams, a native of Wellington, Ohio, their children being two daughters and one son--Ada E., Mabel O. and Harold B.
