From Hosmer, SD Centennial Book 1987: RUDOLPH HIEB HISTORY

Rudolph Hieb was born December 29, 1884, at Neudorph, South Russia, to Jacob W. and Caroline (Helm) Hieb. At the age of nine he came to America with his parents. His father homesteaded on the NE 1/4 , Sec. 3, Twp. 125, Range 71. Rudolph farmed with his dad until he was of age to homestead for himself. Since there was no more land left to homestead east of the Missouri River, he had to go west of the river. He left on horseback and headed west to homestead the SW 1/4, Sec. 2, Twp. 15, Range 12 in Perkins County, South Dakota. After his claim was approved he came back to McPherson County and on January 21, 1913, married Maria Walth, daughter of Jacob and Katherine (Eisenbeisz) Walth. They built their farm on the NW 1/4 , Sec. 2, Twp. 125, Range 71 and there they farmed until their retirement in 1952 when they moved to Hosmer, South Dakota. In June of 1965 Rudolph had a stroke which left his left side paralyzed. From that time on he spent considerable time in the hospital. The last six years he was a resident of the Senior Citizen's Home at Hosmer. On February 2, 1972, he died. Maria spent the last four years of her life in the Senior Citizen's Home at Hosmer and died June 28, 1976.

Rudolph and Maria were blessed with 13 children. They are: Mrs. William Althea (Hieb) Buechler Weishaar, Aberdeen; Mrs. Gerald Alma (Hieb) Bratton, Ojai, California; Arnold Hieb, Hosmer; Mrs. Leontena (Hieb) Morlock, Ellendale, North Dakota; Harold Hieb, Aberdeen; Herbert Hieb, Hosmer; Mrs. Randy Erna (Hieb), Huber, Roscoe; Otto Hieb, Hosmer; Robert Hieb, Roscoe; Mrs. Jules Helen (Hieb) Satmary, Brea, California; and Harry Hieb, Caputa, South Dakota.
