Bruno W. Tielebein, who has spent his entire life in Buchanan county and enjoys an enviable reputation as one
of its representative agriculturists and prosperous citizens, is the owner of an excellent farm embracing one hundred
and sixty acres on section 4, Newton township. His birth occurred in that town, ship on the 16th of May, 1868,
his parents being Frederick C. and Catherine E. (Fisher) Tielebein, more extended mention of whom is made on another
page of this work in connection with the sketch of Otto Tielebein, a brother of our subject.
Bruno W. Tielebein attended the district schools in the acquirement of an education and remained under the parental
roof until twenty seven years of age. Subsequently he cultivated rented land until 1902, when he fell heir to a
farm of thirty five acres on section 4, Newton township, the boundaries of which he extended by purchase to include
one hundred and two acres. He improved the property and later bought more land until his place now comprises one
hundred and sixty acres. He likewise owns a fifteen acre tract of timber land on section 31, Newton township, and
in his undertakings as an agriculturist has won a well deserved and most gratifyin measure of success. In addition
to the cultivation of cereals he raises high grade Poland China hogs and thoroughbred shorthorn cattle, this branch
of his business adding materially to his annual income. He is also a stockholder in the general store at Kiene
and enjoys an enviable reputation as one of the enterprising and substantial citizens of his native county.
On the 27th of March, 1895, Mr. Tielebein was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth C. Schuman, a daughter of William
and Susan (Harmon) Schuman, both of whom were natives of Dubuque county, Iowa. The father came to Buchanan county
in an early day and purchased four hundred acres of land in Newton township, here carrying on agricultural pursuits
throughout the remainder of his life. His demise occurred in October, 1911, but the mother survives and resides
on the old home place.
Mr. Tielebein gives his political allegiance to the republican party and is identified fraternally with the Modern
Brotherhood of America, while his religious faith is that of the Congregational church. He is esteemed by all who
know him and enjoys the respect and confidence of his friends and the general public.
