HISTORY OF UNION COUNTY.

BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCHES.JOHN HOBENSACK, County Sheriff, Marysville. Sheriff Hobensack inherits the blood of the German, who with his progenitors, bequeathed to posterity the valor of the illustrious name.

"Our Ancestry, a gallant race,

Patterns of every virtue, every grace."

The grandparents of John and Hannah Hobensack, with the maternal connections, John and Rachael Fetter, emigrated to the American shore in 1773, and founded homes in the wilderness of the Keystone State, where they lived, sorrowed, rejoiced and died. Their rude cabins have long since given place to the commodious residences of their children, and the advance of civilization has embraced their settlement in the populous Montgomery County. They were patriots of the Revolutionary war, and both were officers through that struggle. The paternal head subsequently erected a large distillery, where he carried on an extensive business to the close of his life. Isaac and Emily (Fetter) Hobensack, the parents of our subject, were both natives of Montgomery County, Penn. They subsequently moved to Bucks County, Penn., where she died in 1876. He was a farmer by occupation, but at this time is living in retirement at his home. The subject of this sketch, whose portrait appears in this work, was born in Bucks County, Penn., September 16, 1833. He was reared on the homestead, and on August 5, 1862, joined the legions of the Union army as a private in Company F, First New Jersey Cavalry. He was subsequently commissioned Second Lieutenant, and received rapid promotion to First Lieutenant and Captain of the company. For meritorius conduct on the field, he was brevetted Major, Lieutenant Colonel and Colonel of the regiment, and gave a gallant record to ibis arm of the service, participating in all the hard. fought battles of the Army of the Potomac. He was wounded at Cedar Mountain, Va., August 9, 1862, and carried off the field. During action at Brandy Station, Va., and while in command of the Second Battalion, he, with eighty-seven of his men, were taken prisoners. He was stripped of his boots and hat, and taken to Centerville, Va., in the midst of the rebel army. During the first night of confinement, he with several others, escaped to the Union lines. He was spin wounded at New Hope Church, Ga., but continued in active service to the close of the war. In 1866, he occupied a farm in the north of Union County, Ohio, where be resided until his election as Sheriff in October, 1880, at which time he took up his residence in Marysville, and assumed the duties of his office. His abilities and integrity as an officer needs no comment.
