He was the son of Abraham Ala and Maria Karinini. He immigrated to the U.S. in 1887 and married Anna Hirtita on January 21, 1893. The couple had seven children: Raino (1894-), William (1896-), George (1897-), Allie (1898-1973), Norman (1900-), Rupert (1904-1968), and Irene (1909-1983). Anna died in 1910. Herman was trapped on the Italian Hall staircase with his daughter Irene. Although he lost his own life, he was able to save young Irene; her arm was badly broken. The Ala family is included in the 1910 census for Osceola under the surname Ellen; Anna's name is given as Felice.
