Note (fam)March 1895He and Louise Piepho in March 1895 in Horton Township, Osceola, Iowa, United StatesB. 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. Herman and Louise Bremer were active members of Zion Lutheran Church throughout their life in Iowa. Herman held several offices in the church, seventeen years as an Elder. He also held township offices.1

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 the church cemetery.

Mrs. Fred Hartwig (Elsie Catharina Gronewald) was born in Germany June 15, 1865. On the 5th of July she was presented to her Lord in holy baptism. After spending her childhood days under the care of her parents she was united in holy matrimony to Marcus Nitz on the 12th of February 1887, in the Lutheran church at Aurich, Germany. To this union three children were born, namely: Rieka, Gertrude and Folkart. On January 19, 1895, her husband preceded her in death. Then she, together with her three children immigrated to America and settled at Wing, Livingston county, Ill. There she was two years later, on December 7, 1896, united in marriage to Fred Hartwig. To this union were born eight children: Reinhard, John, Henry, Benjamin, Margaret, Lenora and Anna, one baby dying in infancy.

In 1907 the family moved to Ocheyedan, where they have made their home until the present time. Mrs Hartwig was taken ill in the first part of Dec 1928 with gall stone trouble. This proved to be a lingering sickness until the middle of September, when she suffered a stroke which made her condition serious. It was at this time when she also lost her eyesight. After consulting several physicians she was placed under the care of Dr Moe of Sioux Falls. She was taken to his hospital last Wednesday, Nov 13 in order to give her the best of care possible, but her Lord releaved her from her sufffering at 2:45 Friday, Nov 15, at the age of 64 years and 5 months. Mrs Hartwig was a faithful member of the Melvin Lutheran church.

She leaves to mourn her departure, her loving husband and her children: Mr. and Mrs. Jess Turner of Clair, Canada, Mr. and Mrs. Fred Lottman, Logensport, Ind., Mr. and Mrs. Folkert Nitz, O'Dell, Ill., Reinhard and John of Wood Lake, MN., Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hartwig of Ocheyedan, Margaret of Wood Lake MN., Mr. and Mrs. Fred Drenkow of Melvin, and Benjamin and Anna still at home, and sixteen grandchildren besides a large number of more distant relatives and friends.

Funeral services were conducted by the Rev. G.Goeken Tuesday afternoon, November 19, at one o'clock at the home, and at two o'clock at the church. The remains were laid to rest in the Baker township cemetery. Mr. and Mrs. Henry Hartwig of Peoria, Ill., the latter a brother of Mr. Fred Hartwig, attended the funeral.16
