      Subject: Re: Tangeman Family
      To: Jim Burrows <>


      Our records are very close, but contain some key (at least in my line!) differences. To start from the beginning, my research began several years ago when my great grandmother Edna Ring (nee Tangeman) told me many stories about her relatives in Talmage, Nebraska. Fortunately, I wrote most of these stories down before she passed away, and based on this I was able to trace the Tangeman family back to their native German town of Hanover through research at the National Archives and the Daughters of the American Revolution. Here's what I found out:

      John G. Tangeman immigrated to the US in 1832 at age 10 with his parents, living at first in Auglaize County, Ohio. (John was born July 25, 1882, and died November 1, 1904). The Tangeman family which immigrated consisted of his father (whose name, I am fairly certain, was Herman Henry, and he died in Ohio on October 2, 1840), his mother Anna H. (b. 1796), and at least two siblings, his brothers David (b. 1828) and Herman (b. 1830). John also had four brothers, Jackson (b. 1832), William (b. 1836), and twins George and August (b. 1839) who were all born in Ohio.

      Around 1840, perhaps after the death of the father, they all moved to Clayton County, Garnavillo Township, Iowa. They lived here for about 30 years.

      John met and married Anna Maria (I'm fairly certain her maiden name was Harns but not positive) in Clayton County, Iowa around 1848. Anna Maria came to the U.S. in 1837 at age 5 (she was born October 31, 1832, and died May 14, 1889) with her mother (her father died three years before they emigrated from Germany). Mother and daughter first lived in Cincinnati, then moved to Clayton County.

      John G. and Anna Maria had six children that I knew of:

      Henry (or Heinrich), born October 31,1849, died September 21, 1877
      John William, born November 17, 1851 d. 1916
      Herman Henry (b. July 4, 1853, died November 2, 1936)
      Anna b. 1856
      Mary b. 1862
      Alvena b. August 14, 1863, died January 1, 1913)

      I do not have a record of Jenny, and am intrigued by it, especially since you mentioned a person she married. My great grandmother also did not mention Arthur, although I have a line with a question mark next to the names of the children which would seem to indicate there were other siblings she could not quite remember.

      My great grandmother also told me the following:

      - Anna was never married
      - She remembered that Mary was married to a Risser
      - Alvena married Jacob Hopp
      - John William married Lizzie O. Risser in Otoe County, Nebraska. Lizzie was born in Lee County, Iowa on December 4, 1858, and died in 1917. She was the daughter of David and Christina (nee Hubach) Risser.
      - Herman Henry was my great great grandfather

      Other items of interest include:

      - I have a short biography of John William and his brother Herman Henry.
      - I have an illustration of the Tangeman flour mill, which was originally built by John G., and was run by Herman Henry. The illustration is of the "new" fluor mill built in 1884, after the old one was destroyed by a fire. The fluor mill still exists and is operational today, being called the Talmage Fluor Mill. I'm not certain if the mill in the illustration is still standing.
      - I have been to the cemetary near Talmage, Nebraska where most of the Tangemans rest. There is a small church adjacent to the cemetary which contains all of the old wedding, birth, and other records.

      If you would like copies of the biographies and the illustration, let me know. I can either fax them or w them to you.

      I'm sorry I don't have this in GEDCOM format yet - I'm planning to do so shortly and will e-mail it to you if you wish.

      I hope this is of some help.

      Take care and stay in touch.

      JOHN W. TANGEMAN. This gentleman is a member of the firm, well-known in business circles throughout the county, of Becker & Tangeman, doing business at Talmage, McWilliams Precinct. They are handling all kinds of hardware, both for farm, household, and other purposes, agricultural implements, etc. The firm was established in 1882, and succeeded the business house of T. E. Farnsworth. The trade is quite extensive, and has grown to represent a business of about $60,000 annually. This year promises to go some thousand above that figure, for although their patrons are chiefly local, yet the territory drawn upon is very large. The reputation of the firm and their excellent stock account for the large business done.

      Previous to engaging in his present business Mr. Tangeman followed agricultural pursuits in Osage Precinct of this county for about one year. His residence in the county dates from the year 1868; the greater pact of the time he made his residence in that precinct with his father, John G. Tangeman, who was an extensive farmer, and our subject remained until he attained his majority, when he started out for himself.

      The subject of our sketch was born in Clayton County, Iowa, Nov. 17, 1851. He is the second child of six born to his parents. His father was a native of Hanover, Germany, when ten years of age accompanying his parents to this country. They located in Auglaize County, Ohio, removing subsequently to Clayton County, Iowa. There they continued to live for about thirty years. There also are laid the scenes of youth and early manhood of Mr. Tangeman, Sr., and also that of his marriage; his wife, like himself, was born in Hanover. She was but five years of age when her mother brought her to America, and their home was made in the city of Cincinnati. Her father died in Germany about three years prior to the emigration of his widow to this country. From Cincinnati the mother removed to Clayton County, her daughter of course accompanying her. After about one year the mother died at her home, and later the daughter united her fortunes and life with that of our subject, as above mentioned.

      The parents of our subject are now living in Jennings, La., having gone South in the spring of 1888. They had been residents of Otoe County for eighteen years. The father had been interested in milling and farming, and still owns an interest in the flouring-mill in McWilliams Precinct. He is, however, retired from active participation in business affairs. In the Lutheran Church the father and mother are active and respected members, and have so continued throughout their lives.

      The subject of our sketch was educated in Blairstown, Benton Co., Iowa, and received a thorough, serviceable, English education. He came to Nebraska before he was of age, and married Miss Lizzie O. Risser in Osage Precinct, Otoe County. This lady was born in Lee County, Iowa, on the 4th of December, 1858. She is the daughter of David and Christina (Hubach) Risser, both of whom look to the Fatherland as the place of their nativity. There also they were brought up, educated and married, but came to the United States almost immediately after that important and interesting incident. They also at first made their home in Ohio, but removed thence to Lee County, Iowa, where they lived upon a farm until 1870, from there removing as a family to Osage Precinct in this county, where they have since continued to follow husbandry. They also are attached to the German Lutheran Church, in which they were brought up.

      Mrs. Tangeman, the wife of our subject, was educated after she came to this county. She is now the mother of two children, who have received the names of Elmer and Ella. These are now receiving instruction in the schools of Talmage, and with the additional advantages which are theirs in this direction, doubtless their future will be brightened by the roseate halo of successful life. Our subject and wife are members in good standing of the Lutheran Church. Mr. T. indeed holds the office of Deacon, which he has filled since 1888. Politically, he is a Republican, and enjoys the confidence and esteem of his fellows and the community tit large.

      JACOB HOPP. This gentleman is a member of the firm of Tangeman & Sons, of McWilliams Precinct, engaged in the milling trade, and has been so connected since the fall of the year 1884. He has been directly and profitably engaged with the firm, and is a practical miller, having learned the business in all its details in the mill he now operates. Our subject has been a resident of the county for over ten years, living chiefly in Osage Precinct until he began to learn the milling trade.

      The subject of our sketch was born in Lee County, Iowa, on the 29th of July. 1859. He is the fourth child and second son of Plillip (sic) Hopp, now a prominent citizen and successful and enterprising farmer in Osage Precinct, where he has lived for over ten years. He is a practical farmer, thrifty and careful. He had previously lived in Lee County, Iowa, where our subject was brought up and received his education in the district schools.

      Mr. Hopp was about nineteen years of age when he came to this State. He attained his majority while living in Osage Precinct, and continued to make his home with his parents until he came to the Tangeman Mills. He celebrated his marriage in McWilliams Precinct, when he was united with Miss Alvina Tangeman. This lady was born in Clayton County, Iowa, on the 14th of August, 1863, and was but a child of six years when her father, John G. Tangeman, settled in this precinct. To Mr. and Mrs. Hopp has been born one child, who received the name Lillie.

      The religious home of our subject and his wife is within the German Evangelical Church, with which they have been connected many years. He is the School Treasurer of his precinct, an office he has held since 1886. He is also one of the stanch Democrats of the district and takes much interest in political work. Although a young man he has made many friends and is highly esteemed, and without doubt there is before him a future that will grow brighter as the years pass.

      p 648-651

      HERMAN H. TANGEMAN, member of the firm of Tangeman & Sons, who operate the well-known flouring-mill on the Nemaha River, in the northwest part of McWilliams Precinct, has reason to be proud of this enterprise, with which he became connected in the spring of 1882. It is one of the leading institutions of its kind in the county, and is patronized by its best citizens far and near. The property is of more than ordinary interest and importance to our subject, the mill having been established by his father, John G. Tangeman.

      The present building was erected in 1884, upon the site of the old mill which had been destroyed by fire. It has been fitted up with all the modern machinery, including five double-run of rollers, and operating by the patent process so much in favor in this latter day. There is a 60-horse power engine, driven by water, transported from the wheel to the mill by a cable in an even, unobstructed stream over a groove wheel nine feet in diameter. The entire machinery moves easily and without friction, and in a year's time puts out probably 15,000 barrels of flour, besides meat and other commodities. The firm of Tangeman & Sons are able to compete with the best manufacturers of flour in Southwestern Nebraska, and supply a considerable foreign demand, their patronage extending throughout this and adjoining States. A view of the mill with its surroundings is shown on the accompanying page.

      Our subject was the third child of his parents, whose family comprised six children, and was born in Clayton County, Iowa, July 4, 1853. He was reared and educated in his native township, and was a youth of sixteen years when the family came to Nebraska. They settled in Osage Precinct, this county, and the father in 1881 established the present mill business, where Herman H. acquired the practical knowledge which is serving him so well at the present time, Since the retirement of his father he has managed the business in an admirable, manner, and without embarrassment.

      One of the most important events in the life of our subject was his marriage, which occurred Dec. 11, 1881, the maiden of his choice being Miss Hopp. Mrs. Tangeman is a native of Lee County, Iowa, and was born in Charleston Township, Dec. 11, 1861. Her father, Phillip Hopp, a very successful farmer, is a resident of Osage Precinct, where he has lived for many years. The parental family included nine children. Mrs. Tangeman received a fair education in the common schools, and remained with her parents until her marriage. She is now the mother of one child, a daughter, Leonora L., who was born April 6, 1887. Our subject, politically, is a sound Republican, and with his excellent wife, a member of the German Evangelical Church, of Osage Precinct. He has never sought office, but at the solicitation of the people of his school district serves as Director.
