Biography from 'Centennial History of Crawford County, Ohio 1902) p 810

  On the 'farm in Lykens township which is yet his home Henry J. Oberlander first opened his eyes to the light of day on the 3ist of May,  i847, and throughout his entire life he has been connected with the agricultural mterests  of Crawford county.   He is now numbered among its leadmg and representatives farmers, and wherever he is known is held in high regard.

. His father, Jacob Oberlander, was born and reared in York county, Pennsylvania, and there he manied Elizabeth Allbright They began their domestic life upon a farm in that county and also lived for a time in Adams county, Pennsylvania, .but determined to try his fortune farther west. In 1832 Mr. Oberlander made his way to Richland county, Ohio, hiring a horse ·team with which to accoinplish the journey. Tliere he resided until I835, when he came to Crawford county and entered a tract of land of eighry acres in Lykens township, from the government. The following year he brought his family to the new home and soon they were living in true pioneer style in a. little log cabin containing but one room. The farm was covered with a heavy growth of timber and it required many long years of arduous toil to clear and improve the place. 'Throughout the remainder of his years Jacob Oberlander carried on farming here, and at one time was the owner of four hundred and twenty acres of valuable land. He made many excellent improvernents upon his place and his property became one of the most attractive and desirable farms of the county. He was a member of the Pietist church and an earnest Christian gentleman, who commanded the respect and confidence of all with whom he was associated in the active afiairs of life. He died Januaiy 2I, 1887, at the ripe old age of eighty-three years. On the old homestead Henry Oberlander has spent his entire life. The common.schools aflorded him his educational privileges and under his father's direction he early became familiar with all the duties that fall to the lot of tlie agriculturist. Together they carried on the farming operations until the father·'s death, and Mr. Oberlander of this review has since resided on the old home place devoting his energies to the cultivation of his farm, comprising one hundred acres, of whieh ninety acres is cleared and the greater part divided into fields, which are highly improved. He carries on general fanning and his well directed labors bring to him a good fmancial return. On the 25th of June, 1874, was celebrated the marriage of Mi·. Oberlander and Miss Sarah J. Feltis, of Wyandot county, Ohio, and unto them have been born four children: Irvin J., who married Florence Bogart and is living at home; Lawrence E., who married Ida Spade and is a farmer of Lykens town. ship; Iona B., the wife of John Wisenhour, of Lykens township; and Cora M., the wife of Noah Meck. by whom she has one child, Lena L. Mr. Ober- lander and his family are well known people of the commumty and enjoy the warm regard of a large circle of friends and acquaintances. In politics he is a Democrat, but has never sought or desired once, preferring to give his time and attention to his business interests, in which he is meeting with credit- able success.
