Robert J. Stolper is one of the valued and respected farmers of Sheboygan county, where he is engaged in the cultivation of a farm of eighty acres, located in the township of Sherman. He was born July 17, 1862, and is the son of Frederick Stolper, of whom an extended review is published elsewhere in this work.
Robert J. Stolper was reared in his father's home and educated in a German school of Sherman township. He remained under the parental roof until the time of his marriage, at which time his father made him a present of a farm of eighty-one arcres, which he had purchased in 1884, and upon that farm he established his home. He has since improved the place with all the necessary buildings, including a residence, barns and sheds required in the operation of a general fanning and dairying business. He has one of the best and most up-to-date dairy stock farms in this part of Sheboygan county, using at present in his dairy fifteen head of high-grade dairy cattle.
On October 2, 1887, Mr. Stolper was united in marriage to Miss Elizabeth Torke, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Gottlieb Torke, of whom a more extended review appears in another part of this work. Mr. and Mrs. Stolper are the parents of four hcildren: Arno, born June 10, 1891; Ella, born June 26, 1893; Noah, born October 25, 1894; and Selma, born March 23, 1897. Mr. Stolper is affiliated with the republican party, and is a member of the Lutheran church of Sherman township. He is one of the highly respected men of Sheboygan county and is interested in any measure of public concern, seeking to improve the educational, religious and material condition of the people of this section.
