AUGUST GARLOFF
Among the people who knew him, August Garloff was held in the highest esteem for his many deeds of kindness and good qualities. He was born in Minnesota, where his father, John Garloff, was a farmer and later followed the same occupation near Sebastopol, Sonoma county, Cal. August Garloff received his education in the public schools of Minnesota, and during this time he also learned farming in all its details. On coming to Sonoma county he became superintendent for Harrison Mecham, on the old home ranch, continuing this until Mr. Mecham's death, and thereafter he operated the ranch until his decease at the Petaluma Hospital, May II, 1911. He was married in San Francisco, September 3, 1907, to Miss Hattie Mecham, who was born on the old home place near Stony Point and is the daughter of the late Harrison Mecham. She received her education in the Petaluma high school.

Mr. Garloff was a natural genius and inventor. Being a good mechanic, he invented an oil burner for cook stoves and brooder houses, known as the Garloff burner, which has been demonstrated a success and is much appreciated. Mrs. Garloff is making her residence at the old homestead, where she is looking after her interests and enjoys the association of many friends.
