Looking for any information on Paul CREMER (or CRAMER) b 1818 PA d 1886 NE. his parents or siblings and his wife Elizabeth BESORE (or BASORE or BASEHAR [Basehore]) b 18 Nov 1824 Lebanon PA. d 1907 NE. They were married 8 Jun 1843 in Carlisle, PA. Their children were Jane b Aug 1842, Ann b Jun 1844, Luther b Dec 1846, John b Dec 1847, Clara b Jun 1849, Lavier b Nov 1851, Amelia b Aug 1854, Alonzo b Jun 1859, Ida b Jun 1860, and Minnie b Jul 1864. They were in Cumberland County, PA area until the late 1850's. I believe Pauls parents could have been Georg and Elizabeth CREMER. Their children were Andrew, Charles, Daniel or David, George, Mary and some I do not have names for. The BESORE family lived in the area but I have little or no information on them. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
These are possible parents of Elizabeth and Sarah Bashore and are buried in Florid, Cemetery, Putnam Co., Illinois:

Mrs. ELIZABETH CRAMER was born in Lebanon Pennsylvania the 18th day of November, 1824 and died July 13, 1908, age 83 years, 7 months and 5 days. In the year 1841, ELIZABETH BASHORE was united in marriage to PAUL CRAMER in Pennsylvania. In 1851, she with her husband moved to Putnam County and from there she moved to York, Nebraska in 1881. After a year had passed away, she moved to Custard [Custer] County, Nebraska and made her home there until 1890 and for the next 18 years, she made her home with her daughter, Mrs. J.W. Hetrick at McCool Junction, Nebraska. Mrs. Cramer was the mother of 10 children, 6 girls and 4 boys. Four of the children survive her, while 6 have passed away before her. On December 23, 1907, Mrs. Cramer came to Florid [Putnam Co., Illinois near the town of Hennepin] to visit her sister Mrs. Henry Cassell [1900 Census in Hennepin, Putnam Co., Illinois records Henry (Feb 1826 - PA) and Sarah A. (Aug 1829 - PA married 53 years) Cassell], after being sick for some time, passed away last Monday, July 13, 1908. Internment at Florid cemetery. Three of the children that are living came to attend her funeral. Mrs. J.W. Hetrick, McCool Junction Nebraska; Lavier Cramer, Broken Bow Nebraska and John Cramer, Smithville Nebraska.
Elizabeth married Paulus (Paul) Cramer/Creamer, son of George Cramer/Creamer and Elizabeth, circa 1841. (Paulus (Paul) Cramer/Creamer was born circa 1817 in York Co., Pennsylvania, died on 1 Oct 1886 in Broken Bow Township, Custer Co., Nebraska and was buried in Custer Center Cemetery, Broken Bow, Custer Co., Nebraska.)
Elizabeth next married George R. Wilmoth on 15 Apr 1888 in Custer Co., Nebraska. (George R. Wilmoth was born in Jul 1848 in Virginia (West VA) and died after 1920 in Fort Lupton, Weld Co., Colorado.)
The Custer Co., Nebraska Historical Society has a copy of the marriage records for G. R. Wilmoth to Mrs. Elizabeth Cramer. These records indicate that G. R. Wilmoth was 38 years old and born in West Virginia. Mrs. Elizabeth Cramer is 52 years old and born in Pennsylvania. G. R.'s parents are J. C. Wilmoth and S. Rizetz [Rosenkrantz]. The marriage took place at John Wilmoths and was witnessed by J. W. and Mary E. Wilmoth.
Mrs. Elizabeth Cramer is most probably the widow of Paul Cramer and at the time of her marriage to G. R. Wilmoth, is actually closer to 64 years old rather than 52. Mary Landkamer of The Custer Co. Historical Society included the notes that report G. R. Wilmoth and Elizabeth divorced in 1891.
