    Biography
    • From Bell's History of Northumberland County 1891: WILLIAM H. HACKENBERG, attorney at law, was born at White Pigeon, Michi­gan, May 14, 1859, son of P. L. and Mary E. (Hood) Hackenberg. His parents removed to Milton in 1861, where he received his education in the public schools, after which he read law with his father, and was admitted to the bar in 1881. He immediately formed a partnership with his father in the practice of law, which continued until 1889, when his father retired from the firm. Mr. Hackenberg's large practice is entirely due to his own efforts and his thorough knowledge of his profession. He is recognized as one of the leading young lawyers of the county, and is a member of the examining board of the Northumberland county bar. Politically he is a Republican; at the age of twenty-one years he was elected justice of the peace, and was probably at that time the youngest man in the State holding that office. After serving one half of the term he was compelled to resign on account of his increasing law practice. Mr. Hackenberg was twice elected burgess of Milton, and was a delegate to the Republican State conventions in 1886 and 1890. In 1878 he married Mary H., daughter of D. H. and Susanna Krauser, of Milton, and by this union they have two children: James Osborne and Nina K.
    Biography
    • Senate — Twenty-Seventh District. 87

      WILLIAM HOOD HACKENBERG,

      the popular young Republican leader from the 27th district (Union, Snyder and Northumberland counties), was born May 14, 1859, at White Pigeon, Mich. One year later his parents removed to Milton, Pa., which has since been the family residence. After a course in the public schools, Mr. Hackenberg learned the printer's trade, but soon abandoned it to take up the study of law, being admitted to the Northumberland county bar in February, 1881. A year prior to this he was appointed justice of the peace to fill a vacancy, and in 1881 he was elected to this office, serving until 1884, at which time he resigned to accept the position of chief burgess. In 1885 he was again elected to the latter office.

      At the state conventions of 1886 and 1890 Mr. Hackenberg capably represented his county, and took an active part in the proceedings. In 1892 he was elected Senator, receiving a very flattering vote. At the beginning of the session of 1895 he was made chairman of the Library Committee, and member of the committees on Compare Bills, Judicial Apportionment, Judiciary General, Judiciary Local, and New Counties and County Seats.

      Senator Hackenburg is one of the most prominent of the younger attorneys of the central part of the state. As a party worker he is invaluable, and he occupies a place among the foremost of our legislators.
