Henry Silwold, a highly respected German farmer, residing on Section 23, Malaka Township, was born in Germany in 1822, came to America in 1852, and located in Illinois. Three years later he removed to Wisconsin, where he resided until 1866, and cast his lot among the settlers of Jasper County. When he came to America his cash capital amounted to about $100.00, but by good management, up to the time he located in Jasper County, he had laid by about $1,600.00. He now possesses a comfortable home, and is practically living a retired life during his declining years. Our subject was married when 36 years of age to Charlotte Depping. They became the parents of six children: Henry, an attorney of Newton; Minnie, Mrs. Herman Clausen; Sophia, single; Lottie, married Charles Helming, and resides in Allamakee County, Iowa; Fred, and Mary, single.
