"ADDLEMAN -- At his home in Piqua, Kansas, Saturday, December 17, 1904, of pneumonia and heart trouble, R. H. Addleman, aged about 58 years. Mr. Addleman was born in Butler county, Penn., May 27, 1847, and was married to Barbara Hoffman August 29, 1869. He came to Kansas in 1887 and settled at Piqua, where he has since resided. One child was born to Mr. and Mrs. Addleman, a daughter, who is now Della Herdman. He was a member of Yates Center Lodge No. 99 A.O.U.W. and the Fraternal Aid Association. He leaves besides his wife and daughter, three brothers and four sisters. The funeral was preached in the M.E. church at Piqua Monday by Elder G. H. Lamb, and the services at the grave were in charge of the Yates Center A.O.U.W. lodge. Mr. Addleman was a good citizen, an old soldier and a Republican, and was a delegate we believe to every county convention that has been held since he came to Piqua. That town and the county at large looses a good citizen."

"In 1887 ROBERT ADDLEMAN came to Piqua. He had a well drill and drilled many water wells in town and this relieved the water situation. Mr. Addleman had the first steam threshing machine in the community. It was an upright engine about eight feet high and mounted on two high wheels. He pulled this machine from one job to another with a yoke of oxen. The separator was pulled by a team of horses. It was a small machine and did not have a straw carrier so two men stood at the back of the machine and pitched the straw away. The threshing season often lasted until late fall as much of the grain was stacked. Addleman also had a small grist mill that he operated in the winter. He was father of Mrs. Thomas HERDEMAN." [Lester Harding, A History of Piqua & the Vicinity]
