DANIEL S. ROSENBERG,
a substantial farmer of section 18, Eden township, owns one hundred and
sixty acres of fine land, on which he has made all improvements. He was
born in Franklin county, Pennsylvania, July 2, 1856, and is a son of
John E. and Mary C. (Sanger) Rosenberg, who came to Benton county in
1865, stopping a few months at Vinton, a year in Brace township, and
then located in Jackson township, which was their home for many years.
John E. Rosenberg was born in York county, Pennsylvania, in 1820, and
removed to Franklin county, the same state, in 1865. He was a
silversmith and worked at his trade in the east, but in his later life
ill health compelled his retirement from active life. He died at the
home of his son Daniel S. in 1890. He and his wife were members of the
German Baptist church. His wife, Mary C. Sanger, was born in Franklin
county, Pennsylvania, where she lived until her marriage; she died at
Vinton, in 1901, in her seventy-first year. They had five sons and five
daughters, of whom several died young. The following are the surviving
children: Daniel S.; David, in real estate business at Long Beach,
California; Joseph, a coal miner of Colorado; John, connected with the
Corn Belt Telephone Company, installing switch boards, etc.; Mrs. J. B.
Schuplin, of Vinton; Mrs. U. Fink, of Garrison, Iowa.
Daniel S. Rosenberg was reared partly in Benton county, and received a
common school education. He has spent most of his life on a farm, and
has lived in his present location, in Eden township sixteen years
except four years spent in Vinton.
Mr. Rosenberg has always been a staunch Republican, and has served in
various township offices. In 1898 he was elected for a term of two
years to the office of recorder of Benton county, and at the end of his
term was re-elected. He then resumed farming; he had previously owned
eighty acres, which he traded for eighty acres of his present farm, and
purchased another eighty acres. He carries on general farming, and has
made all modern improvements.
Mr. Rosenberg married, in Benton county, Charlotte A. Marr, who was
born in Michigan, and came as a child with her parents to Benton
county. She is a daughter of Charles and Sarah (Waite) Marr, both now
deceased. They came to Benton county in the spring of 1868, and after
living in Jackson township several years removed to Madison county,
Nebraska, where they died. Mr. Marr was a staunch Republican and was
always active in county affairs while living here. He and his wife
removed to Nebraska in 1884; he died June 23, 1899, and his widow May
10, 1902, at the age of sixty-four years. Mr. Rosenberg and his wife
have one son, Herman E., of Minneapolis, where he is employed as
bookkeeper for a roofing manufacturing company; he married Miss Rebecca
Hirschfield, of Cedar Rapids, and they have one son.
