EDWARD H. TRAUCH

EDWARD H. TRAUCH. In Bedminster township there are few more popular men than Edward H. Trauch. Mr. Trauch is a grandson of Peter Trauch, for many years a prominent farmer of Williams township, and later of New Britain where he died.

William H. Trauch, son of Peter Trauch, mentioned above, was born in 1847, in Williams township, and at seventeen years of age became the teacher of a school in Tinicum township, working on a farm during the summer. At the end of two years he gave his attention entirely to farming, and after his marriage was employed for three years on the farm of his father-in-law, and then purchased his present home farm in Bedminster township, where he has since resided. For twelve years he has held the office of supervisor. He is a Democrat in politics, and belongs to the Lutheran church, being a member of the church council. He married Mary Jane, daughter of Elias Trauger, of Bedminster township, and of the twelve children born to them ten are now living: Emma Laura, Ella Nora, Ira Elias, Minnie May, Clara, Edward H., mentioned at length herinafter; William, Samuel, Susanna, and Mary.

Edward H. Trauch, son of William H. and Mary Jane (Trauger) Trauch, was born July 22, 1874, in Bedminster township, where he obtained his education in the common schools. At the age of nineteen he went to Kellerís Church, where for two years he was employed as a salesman. He then accepted a position with Lewis Keller, the proprietor of the extensive department of Bedminsterville, where he remained four years. In June, 1900, he purchased the bakery business of William Yost, of Bedminsterville, which he now so successfully conducts, the patronage having greatly increased under his management. He has filled various election offices, but is not an office seeker. He is a member of Maratina Castle, Knights of the Golden Eagle, and Ottsville Lodge, No. 32, Shield of Honor. He is a Democrat in politics, and belongs to the Lutheran church. Mr. Trauch married, November 20, 1897, Maggie, daughter of Titus Snyder, a prominent farmer of Bedminster township, and they have three children: Ildah, Elsie and Mary.
