ALBERT F. VOGT.
Among the up to date and prosperous farmers of Iowa county is Albert F. Vogt, who owns and operates land on sections
4 and 5, Washington township. He was born on the 14th of March, 1878, in Marengo, of the marriage of Franz A. and
Anna (Renz) Vogt. Both of his parents were natives of Germany, but they emigrated to the United States in early
life. The father first settled in Iowa City, whence he removed to Marengo. He later became a farmer of Iowa township
and still lives upon the homestead. He is seventy three years of age and his wife is sixty four years old. They
are the parents of seven living children: George, Philip, Albert F., Henry, Anna, and Edward and Wanda. twins.
Albert F. Vogt was given the usual educational advantages and attended the public schools. He also assisted his
father with the work of the farm and since reaching man's estate has continued to devote his energy to agricultural
pursuits. He owns a good farm on sections 4 and 3, Washington township, and in addition to raising the usual grains,
breeds Duroc Jersey hogs, finding his stock raising especially profitable.
Mr. Vogt was married October 16, 1902, to Miss Mary L. Doerzman of Washington township, a daughter of Michael and
Frederika Doerzman. She was the fourth in order of birth in a family of five children, the others being: Henry,
Anna, William and Ella. By her marriage she has become the mother of two children: Eleanor, who was born on the
3d of September, 1905; and Loyal, who was born on the 28th of March, 1910.
The democratic party has in Mr. Vogt a stanch supporter and he has never been remiss in any of the duties of a
good citizen. He is identified with the German Lutheran church and his religious faith is a vital force in his
life, as in the teachings of the church are found his standards of conduct. Those who know him value his friendship
highly and he is much esteemed in his locality.
