DR. REUBEN HOLLENBACK,* a leading dentist of Shamokin, Pa., is a son of Daniel

and Elizabeth (Sherry) Hollenback. He was born September 1, 1841, in Lower

Augusta township, near Sunbury, Pa., where he was reared. At the age of sixteen

years he began to teach school and continued in that occupation for six years,

teaching in Coal township and Shamokin.

While teaching our subject took up the study of the dental profession under

the tutelage of Dr. B. F. Van Boskirk of Selinsgrove, Snyder County, Pa. He

entered the Pennsylvania Dental College in Philadelphia in 1877, and after

graduating from that institution removed to Shamokin where he since has resided

and has continuously practiced his profession, now possessing a large clientage

which he has secured by the excellence of his dental work, his uniform courtesy

and his painstaking effort to keep abreast with every progressive and modern

method in dentistry.

Politically our subject is a staunch Republican and has for years been active

in the interest of his party. He has been a member of the common council of

Shamokin, in which he now represents the Third Ward, and he served for one year

as president of the body. Dr. Hollenback never sought public office, excepting

when he yielded to the wishes of his many friends and consented to become a

councilman. He is a member of St. John's Reformed Church.

Our subject twice has been married, his first marriage being to Dorothea,

daughter of Michael M. Sober, who resided in the Irish Valley, Northumberland

County. Mrs. Dorothea Hollenback died October 24, 1887, leaving three children,

as follows: William S., who is a resident of Reading, Pa., and a piano-tuner by

occupation; Hudson, a dentist practicing in Mount Carmel, Pa., who graduated

from the Pennsylvania Dental College in Philadelphia in 1891; and Edwin E., also

a dentist, a graduate of the Pennsylvania Dental College from which he received

his diploma in 1892, then engaging in practice with his father until 1898, when

he established an independent office in Shamokin, Pa. Dr. Reuben Hollenback was

married December 6, 1888, to Savilla, daughter of William Fidler of Shamokin,

and to them have been born two children, Harry Franklin, aged eight years, and

Flora Lillian, aged six years.
