BIOGRAPHY: A miller by trade, it is known that Philip Raub left home at an early age and enlisted in the Continental Army. A cavalry man under General Anthony Wayne, he served three years; the last three months as a captain. The unit to which he belonged quartered the first winter on grounds now within the city of Cincinnati, Ohio. Returning home to Northampton Co, ca 1800, he remained there for about a year. Setting out with a horse and old wagon, he traveled to what is now Turbotville, Northumberland Co., PA where he traded his horse for a piece of swampy land owned by John Hower. He had to live in his wagon until he could build a log house. This propery is located on Legislative Route 49067, first farm on the right past the Turbotville Cemetary. According to 1802 tax records, Philip Raup owned 140 acres of land. Travelers in need of overnight lodging stayed in his house. During his lifetime, he owned at least seven properties, most of which were sold to his sons. He is buried near the St. James Lutheran Church in the old cemetery in Turbotville.
