Hermann Tiedemann.

Hermann Tiedemann, devoting his attention to general agricultural pursuits with excellent results, is the owner of a well improved farm comprising one hundred and twenty acres on section 2, Jackson township.  He was born in Germany on the 11th of July, 1878, and was reared by a grandmother to the age of ten years.  At this period of his boyhood he was adopted by his uncle, Michael Tiedemann, who had emigrated to the United States some years previously and had taken up his abode among the pioneer settlers of Adair county, Iowa.  Here our subject joined him on the farm which is now in his possession, finding a good home and loving foster parents under whose wise direction and kind care he grew into worthy manhood.  Subsequently, however, the uncle returned to Germany, passing away in the country of his birth.  In 1903 Hermann Tiedemann purchased the home farm of one hundred and twenty acres from his uncle and has since successfully operated the place, the well cultivated fields being given the careful supervision which results in abundant and profitable harvest.

In December, 1901, Mr. Tiedemann was united in marriage to Miss Frieda Buckholtz, a daughter of Fred Buckholtz, of Washington township.  To them have been born three children, namely:  Fritz, Helen and Gertrude.  Mr. Tiedemann gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is widely recognized as a substantial agriculturist and esteemed citizen of the county in which he has now resided for more than a quarter of a century.
