North Central Ohio Biographies

John G. Dauber, who is identified with the Loudonville Times as editor and publisher, was born at Attica, N. Y., July 29, 1872, the son of George and Sarah (Lorentz) Dauber.

George Dauber, deceased, was a native of Alsace-Lorraine. In early life he emigrated to the United States and settled at Attica, N. Y., where he followed his trade as a blacksmith. Later, he became interested in the carriage and wagon manufacturing business in partnership with a brother, under the firm name of Dauber Brothers. Mr. Dauber died April 9, 1873, and is buried in Attica. His widow was born at Eden, N. Y. She died at Loudonville, Oct. 29, 1930. To Mr. and Mrs. Dauber were born three children: John G., the subject of this sketch; Della and Martha, both unmarried, live at Loudonville.

John G. Dauber was fifteen years of age when he removed to Loudonville with his mother and sisters. He completed his schooling in the Loudonville schools, and began his career as a grocer's clerk. After several years he engaged in business with G. P. Weber, under the firm name of Weber & Dauber, grocers, but two years later disposed of his interest in the business. He has since been interested in newspaper work, being identified with both the Loudonville Advocate and Loudonville Democrat. In April, 1898, he enlisted for service in the Spanish American War, and saw active service with Company I, Eighth Ohio Volunteer Infantry. He took part in the expedition against Santiago, Cuba, and was present at the surrender of that city to American forces. In 1915 Mr. Dauber purchased a half interest in the Loudonville Advocate, and two years later took over the interest of his partner, H. E. Zimmerman. In 1920 the Advocate was consolidated with the Loudonville Democrat, the name of the new publication being the Loudonville Times, and Mr. Dauber has since been associated with John P. Bowman in the enterprise.

On Nov. 27, 1924, Mr. Dauber married Miss Elinor M. Keller, of Massillon, Ohio, the daughter of Charles E. and Minnie (Herbst) Keller, the former a native of Ohio, and the latter of Pennsylvania.

Politically, Mr. Dauber is independent. He is affiliated with the Knights of Pythias and the Knights and Ladies of Security.
