1897 Biography - Leonard Wiedman

Wiedman, Leonard, was born in Wurtemburg, Germany, January 3, 1863, and came to America in 1883. He learned the trade of joiner in Germany, and after working for W. A. La Deux for one year, entered the employ of Gombert & Thompson and was in that mill for thirteen years. Mr. Wiedman is second assistant chief of the fire department and was trustee of the village for two years. In the spring of 1896 he was again nominated for trustee by the Democratic party and received the largest vote cast in the caucus. He was one of the first water commissioners of the village and was on the Board of Health two years. An idea of Mr. Wiedman's success as a business man can be obtained from the fact that he owned three lots and a house before he was married and has never owed any man a dollar. He married Bertha Gombert, and they have two sons, Edward and George.
