    Joshua Grubb. Among the citizens of Newberry township who have wielded the implements of peace and the weapons of war, and who at all times have proven themselves worthy and loyal men, is Joshua Grubb, now living retired after many years spent in agricultural pursuits. Mr. Grubb has been a lifelong resident of this section, having been born in Newberry township, Miami county, October 23, 1844, a son of John and Catherine (Nolmer) Grubb. The parents of Mr. Grubb were early settlers of Miami county, belonging to the sturdy, reliable type of citizens who did so much to carry on the early work of clearing and development. They lived worthy, useful lives, and passed away on their farm, full of years and with the respect and esteem of those among whom they had passed their careers. Joshua Grubb was reared in his native community, where he acquired an ordinary educational training in the public schools, and remained at home until he entered the Union service for participation in the war between the North and the South. During his service he was under Colonel Nelson, his principal engagement being at Port Stevens. He showed himself a brave and faithful soldier and established a good record. Returning to his home, he soon took up agricultural work on his own account and has continued to be engaged therein to the present time with constantly increasing success. At the present time, Mr. Grubb is the owner of a property consisting of 120 acres, all, under a good state of cultivation, located in Newberry township. He has made all the improvements on this land, which are modern and valuable, and carries on his operations according to the most highly approved methods. Of late years he has lived a somewhat retired life, although he still supervises the operations being carried on his land. Mr. Grubb has always been a good citizen, and during the recent war period generously supported all movements, local and national, which promised to aid in the success of the country in the great struggle. Mr. Grubb married Miss Frances E. Cable, and to this union there have been born three children, of whom two survive: Audrey, who married H. Shellenbarger; and Bertha, who married William H. Ganger. Mrs. Grubb passed away August 28, 1908.
