Our subject, the senior member, was born in Germany on the 4th day of July, 1833, where he grew to manhood. In 1852 he came to the United States and located in Fremont, Ohio, where he remained but a short time when he came to Iowa and located in Muscatine. In November, 1859, he came to Marengo and commenced merchandising in a small way and continued successfully until the winter of 1860, when he was burnt out losing all; but with a will and determination to succeed they once more got a start and to-day stand among the first and most prosperous. About the year 1870 they bought the Marengo Woolen Mills, which had been previously operated by a stock company—with little success, and have made many improvements, have been very successful, and they now give employment to about twenty men and keep their mills running all the time.
