Biography of George M. Heimann
Iowa County, IA Biographies





George Martin Heimann, who owns and operates a farm of one hundred and sixty acres in Sumner township, pays particular attention to the raising of stock and is meeting with gratifying success in that connection. He was born in this county on the 6th of January, 1882, and is a son of James and Catherine Heitmann, an account of whose lives appears elsewhere in this work.

George M. Heimann remained at home until he became of age and then rented a farm, which he operated for eleven years. He saved his money with the aim of purchasing land eventually and now holds title to a quarter section on section 27, Sumner township, which is well improved. He raises and feeds many head of stock annually and also grows the grains best adapted to the soil and climate of Iowa. He is aggressive and energetic and allows nothing to remain undone that would add to his success as a farmer and stock raiser.

On the loth of February, 1909, Mr. Heitmann was married to Miss Rose K. Conrad, a daughter of Christ and Mary Conrad, further mention of whom appears in the sketch of J. C. Conrad. Mr. and Mrs. Heitmann have two children: Glova C., who was born November 14, 1909; and Wilbur C., born February 10, 1912.

Mr. Heitmann is a democrat and consistently supports the candidates of that party at the polls but has never desired to hold office. Both he and his wife belong to the German Reformed church and the uprightness of their lives has gained them many sincere friends. Although he is yet a young man Mr. Heitmann has secured a large measure of material prosperity and is accounted one of the successful stock raisers of his township.
