August P. Tielebein of Newton township, is the owner of one of the best improved farms of Buchanan county, supplied with all modern accessories, conveniences and equipments. He has always lived in this county and has not only been an interested witness of its growth and development, but has aided in various projects for the public good. He was born in Newton township, September 4, 1866, a son of Frederick C. and Catherine E. (Fisher) Tielebein, of whom mention is made in connection with the record of Otto Tielebein, on another page of this work.

Mr. Tielebein of this review spent his youthful days upon the home farm and he knew the joys and pleasures as well as the duties that fall to the lot of the farm lad. His education was such as the public schools afforded, supplemented by a course in the Highland Park College at Des Moines, from which he was graduated with the class in pharmacy in 1909. At the age of twenty six years he left the old homestead and purchased one hundred and twenty acres of land on section 5, Newton township, which he at once began to develop and improve. At a later date he added to his original holdings and now owns one hundred and seventy acres in that farm, which he has brought to a high state of cultivation. He has since operated the land with the exception of four years, during which he was engaged in the drug business at Ryan, Iowa, and five years spent upon a ranch in South Dakota, where he took up a homestead and to it added until he became the owner of thirty three hundred acres in one piece. That place is well stocked with forty two head of horses and three hundred and eighteen head of cattle. He employs a man to conduct and cultivate that ranch and on the 2d of March, 1914, he returned to his old home in Newton township, having one of the best improved farms in the county.

On the 19th of July, 1893, Mr. Tielebein was united in marriage to Miss Mary A. Daubenberger, a daughter of Frank and Catherine Daubenberger, the former a native of Germany and the latter of Pennsylvania. Her father was a youth of fourteen years when he accompanied his parents on their removal to America He took up the occupation of farming, which he afterward followed, and after cultivating a farm in Clayton county, Iowa, for a number of years removed to Buchanan county, securing a tract of land in Middlefield township, whereon his remaining days were spent. He died in 1900 and is survived by his widow. Mr. and Mrs. Tielebein have become the parents of one child, Hazel C., born July 8, 1894. They are members of the Methodist Episcopal church.

In politics Mr. Tielcbein is a progressive republican, and he belongs to the Masonic fraternity, with the purposes of which he is in hearty sympathy. He has served as school director and as assessor of his township and his influence is always on the side of advancement and improvement His life has indeed been a busy and useful one, in which there has been much hard labor, but his industry has been crowned with success and he is today one of the substantial agriculturists of Newton township
