Biography of Philip S. Daubenspeck
Rush County, IN Biographies





PHILIP S. DAUBENSPECK, a well known and substantial farmer and stock man of Union township, proprietor of an excellent farm there, was born in that same township and has lived on the farm all his life with the exception of a period of twelve years when he was engaged in the grain business at Glenwood. He was born on June 25, 1866, son of Harvey and Margaret (Hinchman) Daubenspeck, and grew to manhood on the home farm in Union township, receiving his schooling in the neighborhood schools. From the days of his boyhood Mr. Daubenspeck was well trained in the ways of the farm and after completing his schooling he remained on the farm, assisting his father in the operations of the same for about ten years, at the end of which time he became engaged in the grain business at Glenwood and was for twelve years thus engaged. In 1900 he returned to the farm to take up the operation of the same in his father's behalf and has since remained there, having taken over the farm after his father's death in April, 1917. Mr. Daubenspeck has a well kept and well improved farm of 230 acres, and his operations are carried on in up to date fashion. He for years has given special attention to the breeding of hogs, in connection with his general farming operations, and is accustomed to feed out from 500 to 800 head of hogs a year, thus long having been recognized as one of the leading feeders in this section. He also feeds a hundred or more head of cattle annually and has done well in his live stock operations. He has an excellent farm plant, with spacious barns and feeding pens, the plant including a cattle barn 70x160 feet and three others 40x60 feet and two 100 ton silos, and keeps things up about the place in real "ship shape" style. In 1915 Philip S. Daubenspeck was united in marriage to Anna Cook, daughter of Wilson and Louise Cook, and he and his wife have a very pleasant home on rural mail route No. 2 out of Glenwood, where their friends are ever sure of a hospitable welcome. In his political leanings Mr. Daubenspeck is a Republican and has ever given a good citizen's attention to local civic affairs, though not what may be called an "active" politician in the sense in which that term generally is used. He does, however, take an active interest in general community affairs, movements that have to do with the advancement of agricultural interests hereabout, and his influence in that behalf has been an ever widening one.
