HERMAN RIEDEL, proprietor of the old Riedel homestead in Section 13, Grant township, is a good representative of the modern American farmer. He was born in the log cabin built by his father in Section 13, Grant township, Feb. 19, 1864, his parents being Gotlieb and Helen (Gluch) Riedel, of whom a memoir appears on another page of this volume. Brought up on a pioneer farm, he had no chance of pursuing advanced educational studies, but acquired the elements of knowledge in the district school, which he attended as he was able, and from an early age he had to make himself useful on the homestead. This training, however, fitted him well for the duties of life in the position he has since occupied and he now finds himself among the prosperous and respected citizens of his township. In 1908 he took over the home farm, on which he raises Holstein cattle and a good grade of other stock, also planting the usual crops with satisfactory financial results.


On June 26, 1912, he was married to Anna Neimetz, and he and his wife have three children: Gertrude, Francis, and Louella.
