JOHN H. McINTYRE. Few names are more familiar to the citizens of Greensburg than is that of John H. McIntyre. He is a son of John and Sarah (Wentzell) McIntyre, and was born April 18, 1875. He received his education in the common schools of Hempfield township, finishing his studies at the age of sixteen, when he went to learn the painter's trade with his uncle L. P. Wentzell. That he was as diligent and apt to learn in the shop as he had been in the school room is proved by the fact that in the course of time he bought out his uncle, and has since successfully conducted a paint shop in Greensburg. He has displayed much business enterprise and is in all respects a useful and worthy citizen. He married Bertha, daughter of Joseph R. and Emma Klingensmith, and they are the parents of two children: William and Grace.
