History of St. Joseph County (reference information unknown)
Jonathan Fogleman. On section 26, in Colon Township, lies the well-conducted homestead of the subject of this sketch, eighty acres <~32.5 Ha> of which have been his property since 1859. Subsequently he purchased forty acres <~16 Ha> more, and now has a good farm of 120 acres <~48.5 Ha>, which he has brought to a state of thorough cultivation, and erected thereon the necessary farm buildings. He has built fences, planted trees, and gradually added the improvements which have made his homestead one of the most desirable in this part of the county. A man industrious and economical, he has carved out his own fortune by his steady persistence, while at the same time his straight-forward and upright course has secured him a large measure of esteem and confidence to which he is so justly entitled.
Conrad Fogleman, the father of our subject, and his wife, who in her girlhood was Miss Catherine Walburn, were natives of Lehigh County, Pa., in Southeastern Pennsylvania. After marriage they went over into Berks, the county adjoining, where the father employed himself as a day laborer. He lived to be an aged man and spent his last years in Pennsylvania, passing away on the 7th of July, 1887. The mother died while a young woman, in 1836.
The subject of this sketch was the eldest of the seven children comprising the family household, and was born Aug. 15, 1820, in Berks County, Pa. He remained under the home roof until a youth of nineteen years and received his education in the common school. Then, in 1839, he proceeded to Ashland County, Ohio, and employed himself at farming in the Buckeye State for a period of twenty years. Upon removing thence he came to this county, and soon afterward made his first purchase of land here. The eighty acres <~32 Ha> upon which Mr. Fogleman settled had scarcely undergone any cultivation, and he thus commenced from first principles to build up a homestead. He was married in Ashland County, Ohio, Nov. 25, 1841. He first put up a house for the shelter of his family and gradually added the buildings which have completed a most comfortable homestead. The maiden name of Mrs. Fogleman was Susan Coup, and she is the daughter of Frederick and Mary (Rice) Coup, the second of their six children, born Aug. 2, 1808.
To our subject and his wife there were born four children, the eldest of whom, Mary Ann, died Sept. 24, 1872, at the age of twenty-nine years. Sarah Jane, the wife of Moses Draper, is a resident of Colon Township; Frederick is a resident of Burr Oak. The youngest child died in infancy. Mr. Fogleman votes the straight Democratic ticket and vigorously upholds the principles of his party. He served as Roadmaster in his township a number of years. Both he and his estimable wife are members of the Reformed Lutheran Church, and of the Colon Grange.
