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.
