Parents

Family: Alma Sorensen (b. June 6, 1884, d. February 11, 1967)

Biography

  • Birth: Herman R Graf was born on March 2, 1876 in Town of Osborn, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: He and Alma Sorensen were married in 1904.
  • Death: Herman R Graf died on December 1, 1953, at age 77.
  • Note: HERMAN GRAF, a progressive farmer and substantial citizen of Seymour township, who is engaged in extensive operations of an agricultural nature on a fine farm of eighty acres on section 3, was born March 2, 1876, in the town of Osborne, Outagamie county, Wisconsin, and is a son of Gottlieb and Johanna (Peots) Graf. Gottlieb Graf was born in Germany, and was there married to Wilhelmina Bauman, who died in the Fatherland, leaving four children: Carl, Wilhelmina, Augusta and Anna, and he was married a second time to Johanna Peots. To them there were born four children in Germany, William, Elbert and two who died in infancy, and six in the United States: Eliza, Bertha, Herman, Emma, Martha and Ida. In 1871 Gottlieb Graf came to the United States, and for four or five years followed the trade of mason in Osborne, but subsequently took up eighty acres of wild land in Osborne township. Later he purchased and cleared three forty-acre tracts, and engaged in agricultural operations until his death, December 19, 1905, when he was seventy-two years of age. Mrs. Graf still survives her husband, being now in her sixty-ninth year. Herman Graf received his education in the district schools of Osborne township, and remained at home with his father, assisting him in the duties of the home farm. He accompanied his parents to Seymour township, and is now the owner of the original eighty-acre tract on which his father first settled on coming to this section. The farm is a fertile, well-kept property, which yields large crops, and Mr. Graf also engages extensively in fine stock raising. He was married in 1904 to Elma Sorensen, who was born June 6, 1884, a daughter of Nels and Mary Sorensen, residents of Shawnee county, Wisconsin, and to this union there have been born three children, namely: Raymond, born June 23, 1905; Harry, born November 26, 1907, and Mabel, born February 11, 1910.
