O. E. Aber    

O. E. Aber, merchant, P.O. Industry, was born in Allegheny county, Pa., in 1852. The family came from Germany at an early day. John Aber, grandfather of O. E., was a native of Allegheny county, Pa., and a farmer. He had twelve children, of whom John, the eldest, was born and remained on the farm until he was twenty-four years of age. For a time John was engaged in school-teaching, and, later, in mercantile business, which he followed until his death. He married Marie Katz, who bore him three sons and three daughters, of whom O.E. is the youngest. Coming to Beaver county in 1861, the father located at Industry, where he became a prominent merchant up to the day of his death. He was succeeded by his eldest son and son-in-law, our subject being engaged as clerk, and finally becoming sole proprietor. He (O.E.) was married in 1873 to Eliza, daughter of Richard Walton, of this county, and one child, Cora Bell (now deceased), was born to them. Mr. Aber has eighty acres of well cultivated land and thirty-three cows, whose milk is daily shipped to Pittsburgh. He and his wife are members of the Presbyterian church. In politics he is a Republican.
