ALBERT C. LARUE, one of the young enterprising farmers of Buckingham, was born in Southampton township, in which vicinity his paternal ancestors have been residents for two centuries, on November 10, 1874; he is a son of John B. and Eva (Cadwallader) Larue. His father, John B. Larue, was born on the same farm as his son in the year 1850, being a son of Marmaduke Larue of Southampton. He was a farmer for several years in Southampton, and then removed to Buckingham, purchasing a farm near Pineville, where he still resides with his son-in-law. He is a member of the Methodist Episcopal church, and in politics is a Republican. The family of La Rue is of French descent, the American progenitors being Huguenots who came to America about the middle of the seventeenth century, and became residents of Bucks county early in the next century. John B. and Eva (Cadwallader) Larue are the parents of four children: viz.: Albert C., the subject of this sketch; Harry C., Alice, wife of Fred Worthington, and Edgar J., all of whom are residents of Buckingham.

Albert C. Larue was reared on the farm in Southampton. From his twelfth year he lived in the family of his uncle, Samuel K. Tomlinson, of Southampton. On February 10, 1897, he married Sarah Rhoads, daughter of Nathan and Rebecca Rhoads, and removed to his present farm in Buckingham, previously purchased by his uncle. He and his family are members of the Methodist Episcopal church. To Mr. and Mrs. Larue have been born three children: Horace Raymond, Earl Stanley and Edith May.
