Biography of John Luders


Luders, John, Elma, p. o. Elma Center, was born in Germany in 1839, a son of John Luders, who came to Elma-in 1853, and died in 1855, leaving three sons, William, Christ and John. John Luders began life at the age of sixteen by working on a farm by the month, and by strict economy saved enough to buy a small piece of land near Elma Center, where he began farming for himself. He has continued to add to the first purchase, until at the present time he has a farm of 225 acres. In 1862 he married Sopha Cook, and they have two sons and three daughters. Mr. Luders has always taken a keen interest in the affairs of the town and was for some years highway commissioner and for three years assessor; in 1895 he was elected supervisor, which office he still holds.
