Charles H. Daub, one of Eau Claire county's enterprising and public spirited farmers, is a native of Germany and was born in Siegen, Province of Westphalia, September 12, 1855, a son of Jacob and Polaxiney (Klapperd) Daub. His parents emigrated to the United States with their family in 1868 and a short time after arriving in America came to Minnesota and settled in the town of Lewiston, Winona county. They raised a family of seven children, as follows: Theodore; Amelia, who married August Stocker; Charles H.; Frederick; Augusta, wife of Henry Miller; Lena, wife of Herman Schneider, and Albert.
Raised on the farm from fourteen years of age by A. E. Blake, where he now resides, Charles H. attended the district schools, receiving a limited education. He practically cleared the farm of 200 acres, improved it with substantial buildings, erecting his commodious residence, which is fitted up with all modern conveniences, including bath, hot and cold running water and other home comforts usually found in large cities. His land is in a high state of cultivation, which, with its buildings, contain all the modern labor-saving devices and appliances that go to make a model and up-to-date country home. He carries on general farming and stock raising and does an extensive dairy business.
In addition to his farming operations Mr. Daub was for twenty years a salaried man in the employ of the Eau Claire Lumber Company, serving several years as shipping clerk and the last few years in disposing of their personal property, at the same time giving his attention to his farming interests. At one time he was known as one of the largest and most prominent growers of strawberries in northern Wisconsin, selling and shipping as high as $200 worth of berries per day, but during the latter years he has given his whole attention to farming and dairying.
In the early 80's Mr. Daub was united in marriage to Miss Emily, daughter of Corbett Chase, a native of New Hampshire and a descendant of an old and respected family. To this union four children have been born: Ruth, Ralph, Fritz and Hazel.
Mr. Daub has always taken a keen interest in the affairs of his county and state, and as a Republican was elected in 1908 as a member of the general assembly, receiving 1,685 votes as against 1,055 by his opponent, Elmer E. Tobey.
