Hugo Neumann was born in Langenlongsheim, Germany, December 19, 1838 and was the son of William (Wilhelm) Gottlieb Neumann. He was inducted into the German army at an early age, and when his family migrated to America Hugo was unable to go with them because the Kaiser would not release him from the army. After being honorably discharged and before he went to England, he secured a copy of his father's (Wilhelm Gottlieb Neumann) war record of 1813-1814.
While working in England he married Jane Hardiman who lived in Land Port, Portmouth (home town of Charles Dickens). She was reared in a beautiful home, enjoying many advantages and luxuries. She was cultured and was a picture of English elegance.
After Hugo and Jane came to America, they settled on a farm near Cambridge, Illinois, where his father's family had settled. It was difficult to farm in those days and Jane required time to adjust herself to the hardships, privations, and physical labor, which a farmer's wife had to endure at that time. It was many years before she became reconciled. They had four children, Rose, Hattie, Alice and Arno.
The Hugo Neumann family in time moved to Hubbard, Iowa, where they took up a homestead and farmed until 1896. Then Hugo and Jane retired and went to Marshalltown, Iowa to live with their daughter, Hattie. Hattie Neumann had married Charles Harper who was a salesman. They had one son, Arno Harper. In 1904 the two families moved to Omaha, Nebraska
The years in Omaha were pleasant memories to Hugo and Jane. Hugo Neumann died 1925 at age of 87. His wife Jane died in Toledo 1928. They were buried in Red Oak Cemetery near Cambridge, Illinois.
