Philip Daubenberger was born in Baden, Germany, Sept. 13, 1837, and received his education in his native country. In 1852 he came to the United States, landing in New York, thence to Albany, N.Y., where he resided two years, then removed to Madison County, Wis., where he spent one year. He then purchased a farm east of LaCrosse, and remained until 1864, when he came to Clayton County, purchasing a large farm in Monona Township, and has resided here since. In 1874 he married Martha Walch, who was born in Austria, Jan. 20, 1850. The fruit of this marriage is three children-- Albert H., Vincent E. and Frederick William.
