J. TOMER ISEMAN, a farmer of Manor township, was born Jan. 20, 1871, at Kittanning, Pa., son of Jacob and Sarah (Gallaher) Iseman, and grandson of Jacob Iseman.

Jacob Iseman married Barbara Hallabaugh, and became the owner of the farm now owned by his grandson, J. Tomer Iseman. His children were: Elizabeth, wife of John Walker; Harrison; John; Stephen; Catherine, who died young; Andrew; Hannah, wife of David Stitt; Jacob; and Jane, wife of Daniel Gallaher. Jacob Iseman died in December, 1882, several years after his wife�s death. Both were members of the Lutheran Church.

Jacob Iseman was educated in the public schools of his district, and in addition to farming worked as a carpenter. He served his township as assessor and school director. Four children were born to him: John; Mary, wife of Marlin Stitt; Frank, and J. Tomer. The father of this family died June 10, 1896, the mother July 31, 1890. They were members of the Lutheran Church, of which Mr. Iseman had served several years as deacon.

J. Tomer Iseman was brought up on the farm, working for his father while attending district school. Like his father, he has been active in politics, and has served as supervisor and school director. Fraternally he belongs to the Independent Americans and Modern Woodmen of America. Both he and his wife are members of the Lutheran Church of which he has been deacon.

On Jan. 23, 1901, Mr. Iseman married Gertrude Heilman, daughter of John and Ellen Heilman of Manor township. Mr. and Mrs. Iseman have four children: Eleanor, Frank, Richard and Elizabeth.
