Biography of C. L. Kuder

SOURCE: "Portrait and Biographical Album of Champaign County, Illinois," Chapman Brothers, Chicago, 1887


C. L. KUDER was born Feb. 3, 1861, in Kerr Township, this county, in the house where his father still resides. He was the eighth in order of birth in a family of nine children. (See sketch of Lewis Kuder.) Our subject remained at home acquiring all the experience and advantages for education which the country schools afforded, until the age of twenty-two.

March 8, 1883, Mr. Kuder married Miss Julia J. HAGERMAN, the daughter of Samuel and Sarah S. (MALONEY) HAGERMAN. She was the fourth in a family of eight children. Her father was a native of Pennsylvania, and the son of Samuel HAGERMAN, Sr. Her mother was a native of Ohio, the daughter of Whiting and Sarah MALONEY. Mrs. Kuder was born Feb. 22, 1861, in Logan County, Ill. Her father had removed to Illinois at a very early day and settled in Tazewell County, where he lived until his marriage, when he removed to Logan County. He now resides in St. John, Stafford Co., Kan.

Mr. Kuder is the owner of 120 acres of improved land on section 32, Kerr Township, where he is extensively engaged in farming and stock-raising. He gives special attention to graded cattle and Chester-White hogs. Mr. Kuder and wife are the parents of two children—Maude R. and Lulu Pearl. He is a Republican, and has been Town Clerk for three years, but his own business affairs occupy his attention so exclusively that he has not taken an active interest in politics.
