"HENRY JOHNSONBAUGH was born in Pennsylvania January 14, 1810, and is the fourth of the six children of FREDERICK and EVA (SHAFER) JOHNSONBAUGH, of German descent. He was reared on a farm until he was fifteen, when he was apprenticed to a shoe-maker, whom he served three years, and then opened a shop of his own. In 1831, he came to Wayne County, Indiana; located near Germantown; worked awhile at his trade, and then, for six years, worked in a still-house, earning sufficient money to purchase fifty-four acres of land at $11 per acre; this land he sold in the fall of 1856 for $48 per acre, and then came to this township and purchased 100 acres of his present farm. He was married November 30, 1836, to MISS CHRISTINA, daughter of JOHN and ELIZABETH (SHAFER) CONDO, and born in Pennsylvania December 13, 1816. To this union were born eleven children, seven now living - ELIZABETH, MATILDA, IRA, JOHN, SANFORD, SUSAN E. and EMMA E. MR. JOHNSONBAUGH has served as Township Trustee five years, and has filled several minor offices. He has been called upon to act as Administrator for several estates, and has given thorough satisfaction in every instance. He joined the Lutheran Church when but twenty years of age, and is still a member; his wife is a member of the Baptist Church."
