Some will take the initiative in adopting modern methods of agriculture and soil preservation, others will doubt; others will have to learn by example, and yet another class will wait until forced by a depleted soil to take up new ways. One of the progressive tillers of the soil in Remsen township, Plymouth county, is Fred Roling, who was born in Dubuque county, Iowa, September 29, 1866 (1867). Mr. Roling is a son of J.(John)B. and Theresa Roling, both natives of Germany. The father immigrated to America when young and single, locating near New Wine, Dubuque county, Iowa, where he married and took up farming. He had worked as a farm hand for some time, both in his native land and in Dubuque county, which he farmed until his death in 1901, his wife having died in 1897. Nine children were born to them , Fred being the only one living in Plymouth county. He grew to manhood in Dubuque county, working on the home farm, and in the winter time he attended the district schools. He worked out for some time as a farm hand. After his marriage he rented a farm eight years, and in 1898 he moved to Plymouth county, buying one hundred and sixty acres in Marion township, for which he paid forty-eight dollars per acre. He carried on general farming on that place for a period of eleven years; then in 1909 sold out and bought his present farm of two hundred and forty acres in Remsen township. He has spent about six thousand dollars in improving the place, which is now one of the choice farms of the township. He is successfully caring on mixed farming, raising large numbers of live stock of various kinds annually for the market. He has a fine home and attractive surroundings. Mr. Roling was married in 1891, to Thresia Funke, and to this union one child was born(Thresia). After the death of his first wife, he married Mary Reisber, a daughter of Casper Reisberg, and ten children have been born to this second union, namely; Regina, Frank, Henrietta, Rosella, Elenor, Martha, Lawrence, Gilbert, & (Deceased) Mary and Elder. Theresa married Frank Nacke, and they have one child, Elmer. Politically, Mr. Roling is a Democrat. He belongs to St. Mary's Catholic church. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Remsen Bell-Enterprise Newspaper, Remsen, Iowa Roling's Observe 50th Anniversary Sunday, October 6, (1946) was the golden wedding day for Mr. and Mrs. Fred Roling, well known couple who have been residents of this community for 48 years. Spending the day quietly in their home with the company of their children, the couple held open house during the afternoon and nearly 100 friends called to wish them well. The anniversary was duly celebrated the following day, Mr. and Mrs. Roling and their family attended a special high mass in honor of the couple, in St. Mary�s church at eight o�clock. The mass was celebrated by the pastor, Mgrs. M. A. Schemel.

Mr. and Mrs. Roling were married in Petersburg, Iowa, October 6, 1869. After farming in that vicinity for two years they came to Remsen and have resided here since. They settled three miles southwest of town and lived there 15 years, then bought their present farm one mile south of the cemetery corner, operating it until they retired to town six years ago. During his life on the farm Mr. Roling served as township trustee first in Marion township, later for several terms in Remsen township; was interested in the rural schools and since coming to town has taken a keen interest also in civic and business affairs.

Fred Roling Claimed by Death Wednesday Rites for Prominent Remsen Man Set for Friday Death Tuesday afternoon claimed Fred Roling, 84, prominent and widely known retired farmer and business man in this area, who passed away in his home after more than a year of failing health and a month of severe sickness. Failing health prompted his retirement from business activity more than a year ago and for many months he has confined himself strictly to his home. He suffered several light strokes during the year and when another attack came a month ago the end was foreseen. Mr. Roling passed away at 12:40 o'clock Tuesday. Born on a farm near New Vienna, Iowa, September 29, 1867, he was the son of John and Theresa Roling. In Petersburg, Iowa, October 6, 1896, he married Mary Reisberg and four years later in 1900 the couple came to Remsen. They settled on a rented farm three miles southwest of town and lived there eight years. In 1908 they bought the old Gebhardt farm one mile south of town and operated there successfully until their retirement to town in 1942. Mr. Roling always took a deep interest in public affairs and while a farmer served as township trustee for many years, also helped organize the Farmers Co-operative Co. here and served this institution as a director from the time of its organization until his failing health necessitated his retirement. Members at the time, in recognition of his long and faithful service, unanimously voted him an honary director. Mr. Roling also was an organizer and served for many years in an official capacity with the Remsen Mutual Insurance Co. No man in the community perhaps more firmly held the esteem of his acquaintances as did Fred Roling. Head of a large and estimable family he was a devoted husband and father, and to his friends was ever loyal and helpful when occasions presented themselves. As a public official and business man Mr. Roling's counsel was sought and his associates respected his opinions and held him in high regard for his sense of justice and honesty. The body is at the Fisch funeral home. Services will be in St. Mary's Catholic Church Friday morning at 9:30 o'clock, and burial in St. Mary's cemetery. Pallbearers will be six grandsons--Frank Nacke, Vernon Nacke, Derald Pick, Wendell Roling, Fred Tentinger and James Pick.
