    JOSEPH A. KLOEB, proprietor of a plumbing and heating establishment and manufacturer of gas stoves, has followed this business in many cities and towns, but has been located at Piqua, Ohio, since 1896. He was born in Piqua in 1857, and is a son of Joseph A. Kloeb, Sr., who was prominent among the people of this community about the middle of the last century. The senior Kloeb was born in Germany but came to the United States and followed his trade as a saddler. He came to Piqua from Cincinnati about 1850, and here was one of the pioneer saddlers. He was organizer of the first fire department of the city, and at the time of his death in 1866 was serving in the capacity of street commissioner.

    Joseph A. Kloeb, subject of this record, was reared and educated in Piqua, where he early in life learned the plumbing business. He has never followed any other business and has worked in thirty-two states of the Union, in the District of Columbia, and in Canada. In 1896 he returned to his native city, where he has built up a large and well paying business. He is a man of good business standing and enjoys a high degree of popularity. Religiously, he is a member of St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church.
