Biography of George Tromershauser
Iowa County, IA Biographies





George Tromershauser, who has won merited success as a farmer and stock raiser and now owns two hundred acres of excellent land in Sumner township, was born in Germany on the 26th of January, 1869, a son of John and Gertrude (Smith) Tromershauser, both likewise natives of the fatherland. In 1883 they removed with their family to the new world and settled in Iowa county, Iowa, where the father became identified with agricultural pursuits. He is still living in this county and is highly esteemed by all who have been associated with him, but his wife passed away in 1905. They became the parents of five children, of whom four survive.

George Tromershauser remained at home during the period of his minority but upon becoming of age rented a farm. After cultivating leased land for eight years he purchased the farm where he now lives, which comprises two hundred acres of land on section 19, Sumner township. He has given much thought to the improvement of his place and has greatly increased its value as the years have passed. The buildings are well designed and adequate for the purposes for which they are intended and the work of the farm is made easier by up to date machinery and equipment. He gives much attention to the raising and feeding of stock and finds that line of activity very profitable.

On the 25th of February, 1897, occurred the marriage of Mr. Tromershauser and Miss Emma Heitman. Further mention of her parents, James and Katherine Heitman, appears in the sketch of her brother, F. C. Heitman. Mr. and Mrs. Tromershauser have three children: Laura M., who was born on the 29th of August, 1898; Gertrude E., whose birth occurred May 15, 1900; and Tletha Minnie, whose natal day was the 18th of August, 1902.

Mr. Tromershauser is a democrat but has never desired to take an active part in politics. Both he and his wife hold membership in the German Reformed church, to the work of which they give their moral and material support. His salient characteristics are energy, perseverance and unswerving integrity, and these traits have won him a high place in the regard of his fellowmen.
