Went back to the library and tried a few more sources. Found birth records from probate court for Mary Cramer died 29 Mar 1906 md 80 yr born Ireland vol 2 pg 93.
Pat Stickley sent the following obituary for Mary A. Cramer:
Obit: Mrs Mary A Cramer died 29 Thurs 1902 at home of son George W Cramer.
She was born in Londonderry, Ireland, came to this country in 1842 settling in Pa and moving to Ohio in 1854. She raised a family of thirteen children, six of whom are living.
Probate Court Records from Pat Stickley at The Champaign County Genealogical Society record the dates of birth and death to be 2/1/1826 - 3/29/1906 and that she was born in Ireland. Mary is buried in Lot 52, Section 66 next to her husband, Henry.
From the obituary, Mary's brother is "Col. James Patchell". Checking various census and Civil War records implies the parents of James Patchell are Hugh and Martha Patchell:
Online research turns up evidence that Hugh and Martha were actually living in York Co., PA, Harry Cramer's place of birth, at the time of Henry and Mary's marriage:

George (1766-??) Patchell and Ann Patchell (1773-??) my gggggrandparents, emigrated from Ireland, September 11, 1850 and (according to the 1850 census) were living in West Bradford, Chester County, PA. Nearby, were the following Patchells: John, 46, emigrated Sept 6, 1850, living together with Mary, 44, John, 21, ???, 16, Elizabeth, 12, ???,7, Jane, 4, and Mary, 1. Also, there was a Thomas, 17, living near them with another family.
Hugh Patchell (3/18/1793-3/17/1877) and Martha Moore Patchell (11/17/1795-8/24/1876), my ggggrandparents, are believed to have emigrated from Ireland between 1843 and 1847, settling in Columbia, York County, PA, and then moving to Pittsburgh. Hugh Patchell was listed in Pittsburgh city directories for 1850, 1852, 1856-60, as a laborer, living at several different addresses. They are buried in Spring Hill Cemetery, Shippensburg, PA with their son, Sam L. Patchell (1837-1864), a member of Co. D, 130th PA Infantry, in the Civil War.
[note inserted by this researcher, L. Bolling Hagen on May 7, 2007: Checking BIO: ABRAHAM HOSTETTER, Cumberland County, Pennsylvania in the book From Biographical Annals of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, Chicago: The Genealogical Publishing Co., 1905, pages 198-199 (http://www.rootsweb.com/~usgenweb/pa/cumberland) ... Abraham Hostetter married Elizabeth Patchel in Pittsburgh ca 1847. Abraham partnered with Samuel Patchell in a business that eventually was moved to Shippensburg. Hugh and Martha most likely went to live with their daughter and son toward the end of their lives and thus the explanation of why they are buried in Shippensburg.]
William Patchell (1822-7/8/1891) and Martha Williams Patchell (1822-5/1/1875), my gggrandparents, also appear to have emigrated from Londonderry, date unknown. Martha is said to have worked as a maid to pay for her passage after they moved to Pittsburgh. According to the Pittsburgh city directories, there was a William Patchell living and working as a laborer there in 1847, 1852, 1856-57, 1858-1860. William was one of Hugh and Martha Patchell's children.
Elizabeth Patchell Woods (3/9/1844-7/17/1901), my great grandmother was married to George Woods.
Colonel James J. Patchell (7/6/1832-2/28/1920) married to Mary Ann Fairbourne Patchell (1835-???) were my great great uncle and aunt. James entered the Civil War as a private and was mustered out as a Colonel. He served in the 102nd PA Volunteers and fought in many of the important battles of the war. His brothers (all children of Hugh and Martha Patchell) were also in the war: Thomas, Sam, John, George, and Edward. James died in Union City, IN. His son, George W. Patchell, was owner/editor of the Union City Times.
On Jan 22, 2004 Harry posted a reply to a post by Robert Patchell:
I have recently obtained death notices for Hugh and Martha Patchell from the Shippensburg News, Shippensburg, PA for 1876 and 1877 respectively. They both died at the residence of Abm. Hostetter so the paper identified Abm Hostetter as the son-in-law of the Patchells.
