Henry G. Plagmann, who is devoting his time and energy to agricultural pursuits on section 18, Hilton township,
was born in Iowan county on the 12th of January, 1887, a son of Jochim Plagmann, extended mention of whom is made
elsewhere in this work. Mr. Flagmann of this review was reared and educated in this county and has passed his entire
life here, being convinced that no better opportunities can be found elsewhere. He owns one hundred and twenty
nine acres of land on section 18, Hilton township, which is well improved, and is meeting with gratifying success
in his farm work. He was trained to farming and as he profits by experience, seeking always to eliminate unnecessary
waste of time, money and energy, he is a factor in the agricultural advancement of his locality.
On the 14th of January, 1914, Mr. Plagmann married Miss Ella Hursh, a native of Sussex county, New Jersey, and
a daughter of B. B. and Ella (Everitt) Hursh, both likewise natives of that state. Her mother died when Mrs. Plagmann
was only ten days old and her father married again. They resided in Iowa for a few years but then removed to Canada,
where he passed away. In the family were four children, all of whom are living.
Mr. Plagmann is a democrat. He takes the interest in matters affecting the community welfare that is the duty of
every citizen under our representative government. The successful conduct of his work as an agriculturist has won
him the respect of those who know him.
