ROBERT M. HERMAN, of Herman & Siggins, druggists and grocers, Tionesta, was born in Centre county, Penn., November 10, 1853, and is a son of John and Nancy (Shirk) Herman, natives of Pennsylvania, and of German descent. The subject of our sketch, who was reared and educated in his native county, at the age of eleven years started in life for himself as a farm hand, and after a varied career he came in 1874 to Forest county, Penn., locating in Tionesta, where he was employed in the freight depot of the railroad there, three years. While engaged there he learned telegraphy, and was appointed agent and operator at Hickory station, a position he filled acceptably for four years. He then embarked in the manufacture of lumber on West Hickory creek, which he followed for two years, at which time he returned to Tionesta, and carried on the general merchandise business two years. In November, 1886, he became associated with Dr. James B. Siggins, in his present business, in which he has since continued. In 1878 Mr. Herman married Alferetta Paup, of Tionesta, and they have two children: Harold and June. In politics Mr. Herman is a Democrat.
