A. S. ROSENBERGER, physician, Covington; is the only “straight-out” homoeopathist practicing in Covington; he was born in Hancock Co., Ohio, in 1848; his father being a farmer, his early youth was spent on a farm, attending school during the winter; when about 5 years of age, he was the victim of paralysis, his whole left side being affected, but he afterward partially recovered from its effects, and his father determined on giving him an education; accordingly, when 15 years of age, he was sent to the Academy at Berea; afterward attended the Findlay High School, and took a regular scientific course at Oberlin College; commenced the study of medicine in Findlay in 1846-47, reading under the direction and tutorship of Drs. Austin and Detwiler, graduated at the Homoeopathic College at Cleveland in 1870, and commenced practice the same year in Carey, Ohio, afterward practiced several years in Leipsic, and came to this county in 1878. During the past winter, he attended a course of lectures at New York. His increasing practice shows his value as a physician, while the general high esteem in which he is held by the citizens of this vicinity indicates his character as a citizen. He has recently been chosen minister in the German Baptist Church, of which he is a member, and is universally esteemed by the people of his acquaintance. He was married in 1871 to Miss Sabina E. Workman, of Holmes Co.; they have two children.
