"Daniel R. Brubaker, a veteran of the Civil War and one of the well-known and substantial farmers and stockmen of Lebanon township, was born in Page County, Va., Feb. 14, 1844, son of Gideon [C.] and Nancy Rothgeb Brubaker, both also natives of that state and who spent their lives there. Gideon Brubaker was born in Page county, Va., Aug. 28, 1806, and died in 1892. He was a son of Peter and Barbara Ann (Kauffman) Brubaker, both natives of Virginia. The Brubakers... have been established in this country since 1700, when the first of the name on this side of the water settled in Virginia. Gideon Brubaker was married four times and had children by three wives. By his union with Nancy Rothgeb, mother of the subject of this sketch, he had six children, of whom Daniel R. was the first born.
Reared on the farm on which he was born in Page county, Va., Daniel R. Brubaker was living there when the Civil War broke out, he then being 17 years of age. He enlisted in the Confederate Army [Dixie Artillery] at Luray, Va., and served until finally mustered out. [Wounded 9/19/1862, Rappahannock Station, Virginia] ... in the eye and sustained other wounds from bursting shells. In the spring of 1866 [3/29/66] he married and settled down in his home county, where he remained until Feb. 22, 1873, when he left Virginia with his family and came to Missouri, settling in this county. Here he bought a tract of 90 acres, a part of the farm on which he is now living in Lebanon township. As his affairs prospered, he added to the same until he now owns 440 acres. Fifty years and more ago, back in his old home county, Mr. Brubaker taught a term of school and has ever retained the liveliest interest in school affairs. For some time he served as director of his local school district and also has served as clerk of the school board. He maintains an independent attitude on political questions.
March 29, 1866, in Page County, Va., Daniel R. Brubaker was united in marriage with Frances E. Gander, who was born in that county, and to this union 10 children have been born, namely: Edgar, Sedalia, Mo.; Lizzie, wife of V. L. Biedler, of Rockingham County, Va. ; Hubert L., Chicago, Ill.; Henry M., who is at home with his father; Ashby W., Kansas City; Elmer J., Kelly township; Ella M., wife of J. C. Cordry, Kelly township; Homer V., of Lebanon township; Nettie L., wife of W. P. Coe, Sedalia, and Bessie P., wife of T. H. Coe, Sedalia. Mrs. Brubaker, mother of these children, was born on July 18, 1844, daughter of Henry and Mary Coffman Gander, who were born in what is now known as Page County, Va. Three years ago Mr. and Mrs. Brubaker celebrated their golden wedding anniversary."
