Biography reproduced from page 461 of the History of Kossuth and Humboldt Counties, Iowa published in 1884:

William Robe, son of Dydrich and Martha (Fisher) Robe, was born in Hanover, Germany, June 15, 1840. In 1853 he emigrated to Clayton Co., Iowa, and engaged in farming near Guttenberg. He remained there about three years, and removed to Kossuth county, locating on the northwest quarter of section 15. He now owns 200 acres of good land. He was united in marriage with Augusta, daughter of Charles and Caroline Harsh, who live two miles north of Algona. The result of this union is five children—Anna, John, Minnie, William and Emma. Mr. Robe is a republican.

(Transcriber’s note: The section 15 referred to was located in Cresco township.)
