Note: ADAM LEINBERGER. a highly respected farmer residing on section 33, Monitor Township, Bay County, is the son of .John A. and Katherine (Drusslein) Leinberger. A native of this county, he was born in Frankenlust Township, October 14, 1852, and amid the pioneer surroundings of forty years ago, passed his boyhood days. Born to humble circumstances, in which prudence and frugality took an important part, his early life was characterized by simplicity and fixedness of purpose. As he passed his youth upon a farm, he involuntarily grew up with a better knowledge of agricultural affairs than one who is not so reared, and eaily imbibed the ideas of independence as well as mutual responsibility in the life to which he was reared. As he grew toward manhood the country rapidly settled with a good class of residents and among these he began to feel that he was equally responsible for law and order. His firmness and decision of character are the result of the eaily training which he gained anvid the primitive conditions that environed him, while his independent position is due to good judgment and constant exercise of sound common sense.
Prior to the age of twenty-four years, Adam Leinberger found his home beneath his father's roof, but he then established home ties of his own. He was married to Kate Wuepper, who was born in Frankenlust Township, this county, of German parentage. About the time of his marriage Mr. Leinberger removed to Monitor Township and purchased of his father eighty acres, which he has since cleared. Later he purchased twenty acres, and now owns one hundred acres, seventy-five of which have been cleared. His family comprises his wife and their eight children, whose names are as follows: George, born in 1878, Henry, 1880; Katie, 1881; Christina, 1884; Lizzie, 1886; Fred, 1888; Conrad and Clara (twins) 1891.
The religious belief of Mr. Leinberger has brought him into affiliation with the Lutheran Church, to which all the members of his family belong. He is by no means a partisan, but firmly adheres to the platform of the Democratic party party and casts his ballot for the candidates who will uphold its principles. In connection with mixed farming he is engaged in stock-raising, and a fair measure of success has rewarded his efforts in that line. He has a substantial frame residence, a good barn and granary, as well as other necessary buildings, and carries on agriculture according to the hest methods.
