JOHN WARBLE, a worthy citizen of Hendricks Township, is a native of Jefferson County, Virginia, where he was born April 13, 1818, being the fourth in a family of six children born to Matthias and Elizabeth (Staubs) Warble, who were both natives of Washington County, Maryland.  They emigrated to Montgomery County, Ohio, in 1827, where they continued to reside until our subject grew to manhood in that county, receiving a limited education, such as the subscription schools of those days afforded. June 22, 1839, his marriage with  Elizabeth Snyder  was solemnized.  She was a daughter of  John and Nancy (Miller) Snyder; she was born and reared in Maryland.  To the union of Mr. and Mrs. Warble, ten children were born, of whom these five are now living:  John W.,  Daniel,  Nancy,  now Mrs. George Cooper,  Michael  and  Minerva, wife of  John Patterson.  October, 1878, Mr. Warble suffered the bereavement of losing his beloved wife.
