CHARLES F. BROERMAN, who is one of Shelby county's most respected citizens, is a large landowner in Ohio, having 291 acres in his home place in Cynthian township, and eighty-two acres in Wabash township, Darke county, about seventy-five acres of his land being in timber and pastures. He was born in Germany, January 29, 1864, and is a son of Frank and Elizabeth Broerman.
The parents of Mr. Broerman came from Germany to the United States in 1867 and settled on land in Shelby county, O., located one mile west of Fort Loramie. That place continued their home as long as they lived. They were members of St. Michael's Catholic church.
Charles F. Broerman was three years old when his parents brought him to Shelby county and he attended school in the Walkup special school district in Cynthian township and afterward engaged in farm work and after his marriage settled on his present place. He set about making improvements, erected the comfortable residence and remodeled or repaired all the other buildings, put down tilings where necessary and built substantial fences. He has carried on fanning and stock raising with very satisfactory results and is numbered with the prosperous agriculturists of this section.
Mr. Broerman married Miss Catherine Kuether, who was born in Auglaize county, O., a daughter of Henry Kuether, and they have had seven children, namely: Emma, Clara, Frank, John, Robert, Leo and Adeline, the youngest dying at the age of one month. Mr. Broerman and family are members of St. Peter and Paul Catholic church at Newport, O., and for the past four years Mr. Broerman has been church warden.
