Henry W. Fromme.

Picture publish date 1906.
Henry W. Fromme

A pioneer family of Kiowa County was that of Henry W. Fromme, who was born in Langenholzhausen, Lippedelmoldt, Germany, Oct. 19th, 1858. He immigrated to America at the age of 21, often recalling to his family that he arrived in Kiowa County with less than a dollar. From New York he worked his way west and spent about six months in the Chicago area, and about 4 years in Missouri before taking advantage of the homestead opportunities in Kansas. He chose a site about five miles Southwest of what is now Mullinville and filed under the homestead act.
