    This photograph of my great grandparents was probably taken in about 1898 at the 25th wedding anniversary of William and Helena Brumm (they appear older than 24 and 19 years old, respectively).

    William and Helena were married April 1, 1873. They farmed in rural Des Moines County, Iowa, near the town of Kingston. They raised seven children. A biography of William, his family, and Helena and some of her family, was written in 1905 in the book, A Biographical Review of Des Moines County, Iowa.

    Caricature of Charles G. Bosch
    The Charles G. Bosch Company, located in Burlington, Iowa, was the family business for Leslie Thomas "Les" Brumm. He worked for them as a bookkeeper as early as 1905, and was named the "proprietor of a plumbing business" on the 1910 federal census, indicating he had probably purchased the business before that date. The name of the business didn't change as nearly as can be told. Les died in 1941, and all of his family soon dispersed to Oregon and California soon thereafter.

    This cartoon was published in 1913. Possibly it is a caricature of Les.

    Histories
    The Biography of Charles G. Bosch (1854-1921)
    The Biography of Charles G. Bosch (1854-1921)
    Leslie Thomas "Les" Brumm began working for the Charles G. Bosch Company in Burlington, Iowa, by 1904. Later he and his family owned and managed the business. This is a biography of Charles G. Bosch, its founder.

    The Text of the biography is:

    Charles G. Bosch, conducting a profitable and growing plumbing and electric business in Burlington, belongs to that class of men who do not seek to figure prominently in public affairs nor occupy a spectacular position in public regard, but who by reason of their substantial qualities constitute a most valuable element in citizenship. Burlington claims him as a native son. He was born May 14, 1854, his parents, who were natives of Germany, having come to this country about 1851 or 1852, at which time the father opened a grocery store on West Washington street. In their family were seven children but only two survive, Charles Bosch and Mrs. Joseph Spies, both of Burlington. The father passed away almost four decades ago, after which his widow became the wife of John Dabb, who was a baker, conducting business on Washington street. The surviving daughter of that marriage is Mrs. Herman Wolfert, of West Burlington. The mother has passed away, however, and she and her two husbands now rest in Aspen Grove cemetery.

    Charles G. Bosch pursued his early education in the German subscription schools and also attended the public schools of Burlington. He was eighteen years of age when he secured a position in the drug store of C. P. Squires, and subsequently he obtained employment in the plumbing establishment of Stewart L Hayden. At a later period he worked at the plumber's trade in Chicago and Denver, and with the passing years his skill, ability and resourcefulness steadily increased. In 1880 he built the gas plant in Creston, Iowa, which he operated for two years, and on the 1st of November, 1883, he established a plumbing business on Main street in Burlington, so that he has now been connected with the business for more than three decades. The beginning was small but as time passed on he had to increase his facilities to meet his growing trade and today he is conducting a very gratifying and successful plumbing and electric business.

    On the 10th of October, 1882, occurred the marriage of Mr. Bosch and Miss Blanche Louisa Whitehead, a daughter of Josiah Whitehead, of Creston, Iowa. She died in 1910 and was buried in Burlington. In 1912 Mr. Bosch married Miss Clara Lau, of Burlington, a daughter of Nicholas and Caroline Lau. Her father conducts a meat market in this city. Mr. Bosch owns residence property in the city and also has other valuable real estate in Burlington. Fraternally he is connected with the Woodmen of the World and he also belongs to the Silver Lake Club. His political indorsement (sic) is usually given to the democratic party although he does not hesitate to vote independently if his judgment sanctions that course. He has been secretary of the Business Men's Club, in which he still holds membership, and he is likewise a member of the Commercial Club. He cooperates in every movement for the benefit and welfare of the city and is a consistent and faithful member of the German Lutheran church, which has found in him a generous supporter as have various charitable organizations. His life has been well spent, and the salient traits of his character are such as win high regard. His business ability has gained for him the trust of contemporaries and colleagues, and his devotion to the public good has placed him high on the roll of Burlington's progressive citizens.

      personal email from Dale Brumm, Leslie's nephew: "The information I have on Leslie Brumm is he was born 11-18-1874 died 06-28-22. The death date is wrong because I looked in the family bible and his death was listed as 1941 - no month or day. This is probably correct since I remember of us going to his store that was on the East end of Jefferson street in Burlington. It seems to me that he was in the plumbing business, but I could be wrong on that. That would have been in the mid to late 1930s. One thing I remember about going there that he had an automatic hand saw sharpener in operation and that was the first time I has saw one. Dad never talked much about his brothers and they were not close. He was more friendly with Burt the last years.  Hope this clears up the wrong information. Dale"
