Note*March 1895Herman John Bremer and Louise Piepho Herman and Louise returned to Iowa after they married, and built a comfortable home on the virgin prairie land. In 1899 Herman Bremer purchased 128 acres in the north west corner of section 18, Fairview township for $3575. This land was used for pasture in the early years. Prior to the road grading on the north side of section 18, the steep hill was the site of hill climbing competition for cars. According to reports, few cars ever made the forward climb, but the competition was always challenging. Tobogganing, skiing, and sledding were the winter activities on the hill. This land is now (1997) farmed by Wayne Bremer. As Herman's family increased, the house became cramped, so remodeling was done and finally in the early 1900's several rooms were added. During late 1929 Herman and Louise built a new smaller home. At that time Harry and Emma Bremer moved into the big house. In the mid 1930's the smaller house was moved one half mile east to Fairview section 18. Herman, Louise and Albert lived there until 1939 when Herman and Louise moved into Ocheyedan. In 1917 Herman bought another 160 acres, this quarter was in section 24 of Horton township, the northeast corner. This farm was bought for $24,000. The farm became Carl Bremer's, then Dennis Bremer's and at present (1997) is farmed by Keith Bremer.

Passed Away at His Home in Ocheyedan; Services Held in Horton
     Herman Bremer, a highly respected citizen of Horton township and Ocheyedan for the past 47 years, passed away at his home in Ocheyedan Wednesday evening of last week. Mr Bremer's sickness dates back 17 years when he became afflicted with cancer in the roof of his mouth. During the last few years the disease spread rapidly as no medical aid seemed to help him. Until a few weeks before his death Mr Bremer was able to be up and around and to make visits to the business district.
     Herman Bremer was born at Endor, IL, on February 1, 1869, and died on October 29, 1941, at the age of 72 years, 8 months and 14 days. He joined the Lutheran church at Crete, IL, where he grew to manhood. In the spring of 1894 he came to Osceola county, settling in Horton township, where he took possession of his farm. The next spring he returned to Illinois, where he was united in marriage to Louise Piepho at Eagle Lake. Mr Bremer and his bride returned to this county, settling on the farm in Horton township, where they lived until 1939, when they moved to Ocheyedan to spend their declining years.
     He is survived by his widow and five children: Carl, Albert, Mrs Edna Philiph, Harry and Mrs Ora Reuter, all of Ocheyedan; 17 grand-children; two sisters, Mary Rinkenberger of Dyer, IL, and Frieda Reckow of Brethren, MI.
Mr Bremer was an honored and respected man in his community always lending his aid for the best. He was entrusted with various offices in Horton township during his long residence there and served as an elder of the Horton Lutheran church for about 17 years.
     Services were held at the home in the south part of town Sunday afternoon, after which the body was taken to the Horton Lutheran church, where the last rites were held, Rev E J Kallsen, his pastor, paid an eloquent tribute to Mr Bremer's life. Interment was made in he church cemetery.

They stayed with Pete and Marie Lynott in Sioux City for a few months. In Nov 1945 they moved in with Earl and Vera Mortensen on their farm near Anthon, IA. On 3 Dec 1945 they bought a farm and applied for a loan from the Federal Land Bank. The farm was 120 acres located in Section 25 of Kedron Twsp, Woodbury Co, IA. On 1 Mar 1946 they moved to that farm and stayed there until 1 Mar 1952. They sold the farm, sold most of their belonging at a farm auction, packed their remaining belonging into a trailer which they towed behind them to Los Angeles. (He drove the entire distance himself, with only a few hours rest, arriving 2 or 3 days later -- this was before interstates.) After arriving in LA, they stayed with his sister and family, May and Elmer Brown at 2400 Elm Grove St, Los Angeles, CA, then they found a rental house and moved to 2949 Partridge, Los Angeles, CA for about three weeks. During this time he worked for Lockheed Aircraft, again as a riveter. Too many changes had happened in California since 1945 and they were not happy there, so they packed up their belonging in a trailer and moved back to Iowa, again driving non-stop. They arrived back in Sioux City exactly 5 weeks after they had left, and only hours before the bridge into Sioux City from Nebraska was closed because of flooding. (I remember arriving late at night, and seeing nothing but water on both sides of the road when lightning would flash).
