ANDREW WALZ
Among the worthy citizens which Germany has contributed to the agricultural community of Louisa county is numbered the late Andrew Walz. He was born and reared in the fatherland, where he resided until 1852, at which time he emigrated to the United States, locating in Johnson county, Iowa, and there he was engaged in farming for eight years. At the expiration of that period he removed to Louisa county, where his wife, who previous to her marriage was Miss Elizabeth Lindberg, passed away in 1879. The father survived for thirteen years thereafter, his demise occurring on the 15th of May, 1892.

Mr. and Mrs. Walz were the parents of seven children, three of whom survive: Mary E., John C. and Martin S. All acquired their educations in the common schools of Iowa. They have never married and Mary Walz is keeping house for her two brothers, who are engaged in general farming and stock raising, making a specialty of the breeding and raising of Poland China hogs. They own a farm of one hundred and thirty three acres on sections to, 15 and 2 of Jefferson township, which is well improved and highly cultivated. Their residence is very comfortable and pleasant, while the barns and outbuildings are substantially constructed and conveniently arranged. The property is well fenced and drained, and the fields thoroughly tilled. Careful attention is also given to the grounds which are kept up in a manner that adds much to the attractive appearance of the place. In fact throughout the community in which they reside the Walz brothers are recognized as progressive and enterprising agriculturists whose success is the well merited reward of capably directed effort and untiring energy.

The political views of the brothers coincide with the principles of the republican party, for whose candidates they always cast their ballot. They take an active and helpful interest in all township affairs. Both are highly regarded in the community in which they live and where they are counted among the substantial citizens.
