Edward Roehrborn is one of the successful and up-to-date farmers of Sheboygan county. He was born in Wilson
township, this county, April 6, 1866, and is a son of Charles and Barbara Roehrborn, the former a native of Germany.
The father, in company with his parents, emigrated to this country at a very early day. On reaching America the
family located on a farm of eighty acres in Wilson township and later purchased a farm in that township of one
hundred and sixty acres. To Mr. and Mrs. Charles Roehrborn ten children were born, seven of whom still survive:
Bertha, who became the wife of Henry Pfeifer and has two children; Gustave, who survives his wife and with his six
children lives on the old homestead in Wilson township; Edward, the subject of this review; Minnie, at home; Lucy,
who is the wife of Charles Reinhart, of Chicago, and has two children; Amelia, living in Wilson township, who
married Otto Timming, now deceased, and has five children; and Charles, who by his marriage has three children and
now makes his home with his father in Wilson township.
Edward Roehrborn was educated in the common schools and remained under the parental roof engaged in farming until he
was thirty-three years of age. He then moved to the city of Sheboygan, where he became a laborer in the brickyard
and continued in that occupation for seven consecutive years, after which he removed to South Dakota and in that
state remained for some time. He then returned to Sheboygan county, where he purchased a farm of one hundred and
seven and a half acres located in Sheboygan township on section 33.
On the 5th of January, 1895, Mr. Roehrborn was united in marriage to Miss Leona Bollmann. She is a daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Christian Bollmann, both of whom are natives of Germany. To Mr. and Mrs. Roehrborn five children have been
born. Mr. Roehrborn is numbered among the highly successful farmers in the county of Sheboygan. His beautiful farm
of one hundred and seven and a half acres located two miles southwest of the city of Sheboygan is one of the highly
developed and scientifically conducted farms in northeastern Wisconsin. The commodious buildings and farm machinery
equipment with which this property is improved place it well to the front of the most perfect agricultural establ
ishments to be found anywhere throughout the middle west. Here Mr. Roehrborn is engaged in the breeding and raising
of pure-blooded, high-grade stock and beef cattle. He is widely known throughout the county and is regarded as a
man of the highest integrity, ready under all circumstances to give his influence and assistance to any measure of
public interest affecting the welfare of the people in the community in which he lives.
