H. R. ACHENBACH, R. R. Agent and Postmaster, Farmington; one of the most genial and popular gentlemen on the line of the Central Branch. He is a native of Pennsylvania, and was born in Clinton County, December 5, 1844. He was reared and educated in his native State, graduating from the People's Commercial College at Reading. After leaving this college, he clerked in the Prothonotary and Register and Recorder's office at Lock Haven, Clinton Co., Pa. Then he went to Williamsport, where he was engaged in the confectionery and bakery business with his brother. His father, Hon. George A. Achenbach, is one of the leading citizens of Clinton County, and for a number of years has been prominently identified officially. We clip from the sketch-book of legislatures of Pennsylvania, in 1876, the following: "George A. Achenbach, Representative from Clinton County, is a gentleman of reputation on the Democratic side of the House. He was born in Columbia County, October 22, 1815, before the birth of the common schools, consequently was educated in the subscription schools, which were in vogue at that day. At twelve years of age he became a clerk in a store. In 1836, he moved to Sugar Valley, then in Center, but now in Clinton County, where he engaged in managing the mercantile interests of a furnace company. In 1860, he was elected to the Legislature from Clinton and Lycoming Counties, serving his constituents so satisfactorily that he was returned by a large majority. He was a Delegate to the Constitutional Convention, serving on some important committees. Mr. A. is very unassuming at his post of duty, and is emphatically a business legislator. He is a man stout built, but not corpulent, with gray hair, large head, and closely shaven face, his countenance indicating good nature. " H. R. resided in Pennsylvania until 1877, when he came West, arriving in Atchison County, July 6. He at once engaged in merchandising. In that capacity he was identified until the summer of 1881. During that time he took up the study of telegraphy, and was appointed railroad agent October 27, 1880. He had received his appointment as Postmaster, October 24, 1877. In both capacities he is eminently qualified, and without the radiant countenance of "Auchy," at the station, Farmington would have but few attractions. He was married June 24, 1869, to Miss Annie F. Ayers, a native of Chester County, Pa., an estimable lady. They have had four children - Mary E., Preston A., Harry S., and James P. Mr. A. is an Odd-Fellow, and in 1876 was District Deputy of Clinton County, Pa., organizing Salona Lodge, No. 937, June 24, 1876. He is also Master Mason.
