A. D. HOWER, lawyer, was born in Milton, Northumberland county, Pennsylvania, February 21, 1845, son of Nicholas and Elizabeth (Dreisbach) Hower, natives of Northampton county, Pennsylvania. Nicholas Hower, a son of Jacob, came to Milton when he was quite young. There he married Elizabeth Dreisbach, who had also migrated with her parents to Milton. They finally located on a farm near Turbutville, where they died after having reared five children: George W., who practiced law several years in Sunbury, and is How a farmer; A. D.; Aaron A., who taught school many years and is now farming; William H., who is a farmer, and Caroline, who married Charles Windaw. Nicholas Hower was a member of the Lutheran church, and his wife of the Reformed. He was educated at the Minersville Normal School, Lancaster county, Pennsylvania, having been graduated in the scientific and a part of the classical course in 1871. He began the study of law in August of that year, under the able tuition of W. C. Lawson, of Milton, Pennsylvania, and was admitted to the bar, August 4, 1874. He began his practice at Turbutville, Pennsylvania, and soon after was elected principal of the public schools of Muncy, which, in 1875, were converted into a Normal, and he was selected as professor of mathematics and theory and practice of teaching. In July, 1876, he opened an office in Muncy, where he has prosecuted his profession diligently and earnestly ever since. He was married, July 4, 1872, to Drusilla Schuyler, daughter of Lewis Schuyler, residing then near Turbutville, and to this union have been born two children: Bettie and Lewis.
