Louis Bemelman, deceased. In the death of the late Louis Bemelman, of Monroe Township, Turner County lost a worthy citizen and excellent farmer, as well as one of the early settlers of the county. The estate upon which he had been living for many years consists of 320 acres, and bears a full line of improvements, including every convenient arrangement in the way of buildings and the adornments with which persons of good taste surround themselves. The land was carefully and thoroughly tilled, made to produce abundantly, and in the quality of the crops raised compared favorably with others in the township.

Mr. Bemelman was born in southern Germany, Sep. 27, 1835, and was reared in the fatherland until 17 years of age, at which time he accompanied his parents to America, first locating with them in New Jersey and later in Kane County, ILL. In 1858 he located on a farm near Dundee, ILL., later removed to Cook County, in the same state, and in 1869 settled in the state of Minnesota, on a homestead of eighty acres. This property he improved and lived on for a period of ten years, adding in the meantime another 80 acres to his original possession and in 1879 he sold out and started for Dakota Territory.

On arrival he pre-empted 160 acres, and also entered a timber claim, and on this land passed the remainder of his days. He was one of the first settlers of Monroe Township, was well known and highly respected by all that knew him.

This union was productive of four children, of whom we note the following: Minnie became the wife of Evert King, a farmer of Brainerd County, MN; Henry J. who lives in Turner County, SD; William operates the home farm in his mother's interests, and Anna is also at home
