    Hans J. Brockmann

    From "History of Davenport and Scott County" Vol. II by Harry E. Downer-S. J. Clarke Publishing Co. 1910 Chicago.

    Surnames: Brockmann, Meyer, Hagedorn, Evaldt, Klindt, Lensch,

    Hans J. Brockmann has since 1906 been living retired in Eldridge, Iowa, in the enjoyment of the fruits of thirty-five years of agricultural activity. He is a native of Holstein, Germany, his birth having occurred in the town of Louderbeck, December 19, 1843, and is a son of John and Anna Brockmann, the former being a blacksmith by trade. Mr. Brockmann attended the German schools and spent his early manhood in his native land.
    In 1872 he with a company of friends, concluded to come to America, accounts of whose marvelous natural resources, equality of rank and general opportunity had been widely circulated in the old country. They landed in New York and eventually came on to Davenport, settling in this locality. Mr. Brockmann secured a position on a farm, which he held for one year. At the end of that time he rented two acres of land and he and his wife lived upon this place of r five years. By the exercise of thrift and economy they were then able to rent a farm of eighty acres and for three years devoted their energies to its cultivation. Then removing to the vicinity of Mount Joy, Scott county, they rented the Meyer farm for four years, after which they took the management of the Christ Hagedorn property in Lincoln township and remained here for eleven years. By this time their patient industry was to be rewarded. They had reached the coveted goal of independence and they bought the present homestead of one hundred and sixty acres, for which they paid twelve thousand two hundred dollars. Here they lived for the ensuing decade, making many improvements and yearly increasing the value of the property. Three years ago Mr. Brockmann relinquished farming and, having built a fine residence in Eldridge, removed there with the idea of making it his permanent home.
    In January, 1873, Mr. Brockmann was united in marriage to Miss Lena Evaldt, a native of Germany, her parents having lived and died in the fatherland. Five children have grown up beneath the home roof: Amelia married Lewis Klindt, of Sheridan township, and is the mother of four children, Harry, Amanda, Leona and a baby; Clara married John Lensch, of Sheridan township and has five children, Amanda, Emiel, Leona, Raymond and Edna; Rudolph is a resident of Eldridge; and Meta and Harry are at home.
    Mr. Brockmann enjoys the esteem of those who know him, and he served for a number of years as road superintendent while living upon his farm. Iowa undoubtedly owes much of her wealth and progress to her agricultural interests and it is to such men as our subject, self-made, prudent, thrifty and upright, that she is particularly indebted.
