JOSEPH BUNDSCHUH, farmer, P. O. Hodge's Park, is a native of Baden, Germany, where he was born January 4, 1833. He attended the schools of his fatherland, and received a liberal education there, and has, since his residence in this country, obtained a fair knowledge of the English language. He landed in New York when twenty-one years old, and came to Cincinnati, where he worked on one of the suburban farms, and also acted as a hotel porter. In 1857, he came to Mound City, when the town was just being started, and remained until he saw the city assume its present stand. Taking a humble position in the place, he lent a helping hand to many of the undertakings. He left the city in 1871, and came to his present farm, a farm of forty acres in Section 32, Town 15. Range 2 west. Mr. Bundschuh was married, in 1861, to Theresa Painter, a daughter of Alban Painter, of Mound City. She is the mother of four children, two of whom are now living — Oderwalder and William Alban. In politics, he is Republican.
