Henry H. Laub was born Jan. 10, 1840, in
New Holland, Lancaster county, where he
lived until five years old. Then he accom-
panied his parents to Juniata county, where
he obtained a good education, being allowed
to attend common school until 1859, when he
entered the academy at McAlisterville con-
ducted by George F. McFarland. During the
winter of 1860-61 he was engaged in teaching,
in West Beaver township, Snyder Co., Pa.,
continued his studies in school the following
summer, and in the fall and winter of 1862
again taught, in the same place. On April 2,
1862, he enlisted for the Union service, enter-
ing Company H, 49th Pennsylvania Volunteer
Infantry, for three years, and served his full
term. He remained with his regiment until
the surrender at Appomattox Court House,
and arrived home May 5, 1865.

Mr. Laub became a skilled carpenter and
worked at the trade for some time, but event-
ually gave his attention principally to fruit
growing, in which line he did well. As one
of the competent officials of Spring and West
Beaver townships, he has become one of the
best known residents in his section of Snyder
county. In Spring township he serv^ed as as-
sessor, supervisor, tax collector, auditor, cen-
sus enumerator (for 1890) and school director
(three terms), and for the last several years
he has been auditor of Spring township. For
twenty-five years continuously he has been
holding office in the German Reformed
Church, being now secretary of Christ Church
at Beaver Springs and treasurer of the joint
consistory of Beaver Springs charge. As a
veteran of the Civil war he belongs to the
Grand Army of the Republic, holding mem-
bership in Post No. 612, at Beaver Springs,
in which he has filled all the offices ; he served
as commander, and has been quartermaster
ever since 1892. To his marriage with Louisa
Shout, daughter of Adam Shout (who mar-
ried a Miss Howell), of West Beaver town-
ship, Snyder county, have been born six chil-
dren : Harry, who married Olive Knepp ;
Sarah, who married Charles Wagner; Jacob
A., now of Erie, Pa., married to Minnie Belle
Smith ; George A. ; Elizabeth, and Grace.
