Henry J. Buchholz.

Henry J. Buchholz, who is engaged in stock-raising in Lee township and who is highly esteemed by those who know him, is a native of Germany, born July 28, 1884.  His parents, Fred and Sophia (Eichstandt) Buchholz, are likewise natives of the fatherland.  In 1885 the family crossed the Atlantic to America and made their way westward to Adair county, Iowa, locating upon a farm northwest of Greenfield, where the parents still reside.  All of their six children are living.

Henry J. Buchholz remained at home until he attained his majority and then rented land for six years.  At the end of that time he had accumulated sufficient capital to enable him to buy one hundred and sixty acres on section 29,Lee township, where he has since resided.  He has a well improved farm and as the land is productive and his methods are practical he raises good crops annually.  He is a progressive and efficient agriculturist and stock-raiser and has given especial attention to feeding hogs for market.

On the 14th of January, 1909, Mr. Buchholz married Miss Emma Warrior, who was born in Nebraska, a daughter of Henry and Laura (Lau) Warrior, both natives of Wisconsin, who in 1895 removed with their family to Adair county, Iowa.  They are still residing in Lee township.  Mrs. Buchholz received a high-school education.  By her marriage she has a son, Marion F., whose birth occurred on the 3d of July, 1913.

Mr. Buchholz is a republican and there has never been any question as to his public spirit or loyalty to the general good.  Both he and his wife take an active part in the work of the Methodist Episcopal church, to which they belong.  His prosperity is the result of his enterprise and sound judgment---qualities which insure his continued success---and his personality is such that he has gained many warm friends.
