Robert Wildman, P. O. Ionia, was born in Ireland, February 25, 1848. Came to America in 1850, and located in Kankakee County, Ill. Came to Solomon City, Kan., and to Jewell County in February, 1870, and took a homestead eighteen miles southwest of Mankato, and is now the owner of the same. He and his brother are the owners of 200 head of hogs, and from 80 to 100 head of cattle. When Mr. Wildman settled in Jewell County, he was compelled to work out by the month, herding cattle etc., until he got a start in the world, so it is plain to be seen that a man can flourish and make money in this county if he will but put forth the effort. He is a member of the A. O. U. W. He was married in Jewell County, Kan., October 28, 1875, to Miss Emma C. Davis. They have three children – Blanche, Lee and Bert E. Mr. Wildman has held the office of Township Treasurer.
