Raybert E. Misbach is a well known representative of mercantile interests in Williamsburg, where he is engaged
in the clothing business as a member of the firm of Lewis & Misbach. He was born on the 26th of February, 1868,
upon his father's farm in Sumner township, where his boyhood days were spent, during which period his time was
divided between the work of the fields and the acquirement of a public school education. He supplemented the training
received in the rural schools by a course in the Williamsburg high school, from which he was graduated with the
class of 1904.
Mr. Misbach then started out in the business world, accepting a clerkship in the general store of J. F. Lytle,
and later he engaged in the grocery business with Elmer Pugh as a partner. Later he became interested in the clothing
business, and for four years he has been a member of the firm of Lewis & Misbach. They are now accorded a liberal
patronage and the public regards it a pleasure to trade with them because of their progressive and enterprising
methods and the straightforward manner in which they conduct business.
Mr. Misbach was united in marriage to Miss Lottie James a native, of Iowa county, and they have a daughter, Catherine
E. The parents are members of the Congregational church, to which they loyally adhere, and Mr. Misbach belongs
to Stellapolis Lodge, No. 391, F. & A. M. He is numbered among the young business men of the county and is
classed with those whose enterprise is bringing about present day progress and prosperity in Williamsburg.
