CHRISTIAN ARNSBERGER is a native of Wayne County, Ohio; was born February 9, 1836, and was one of ten children of Daniel and Elizabeth (Shade) Arnsberger, natives of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. Daniel brought his family to Wayne County about 1820, and there farmed in the forest, on shares, till 1844 or 1845, when he came to this township, bought eighty acres of partially improved land and farmed till his death, September 6, 1879, at the age of eighty-four, his wife following ten days later in her eighty-first year. Both were members of the Baptist Church, and he served for several years as Township Trustee. Christian Arnsberger is a man of extensive reading, and of broad and comprehensive views on all topics. He worked on the home farm till twenty-one, then served two years as apprentice carpenter, and followed the business for ten years afterward. In the summer of 1864, he was in the employ of the United States Government in Georgia, and in 1865 he moved upon his farm of fifty acres, in this township, then nearly all forest, but now highly improved. September 29, 1858, he married Elizabeth Conrad, a native of Marion County, Ohio, and a daughter of William and Susanna (Stillwell) Conrad, respectively of Marion and Miami Counties.
