JOHN P. PAGE is the genial and popular
proprietor of the Page House of Dubuque. He was born in the village of
Sure, Germany, on the 26th of July, 1844, and is a son of Francis and
Anna May (Maljet) Page, He was reared and educated in his native land,
and there remained until twenty-six years of age, and in 1870 with the
family crossed the briny deep to the New World, landing in New York City.
They came at once to Dubuque, where the parents made a permanent location,
here spending their remaining days. Mr. Page of this sketch worked at
various occupations whereby he might earn an honest living until 1873,
when he entered the Catholic printing office, where he was employed for
three years. This proved to him a valuable school.
In May 2, 1877, Mr. Page was united in marriage with Miss Theresa Eizmann,

as Alderman from the Second Ward, and is an efficient and capable officer.
He and his family are members of St. Mary's Catholic Church. In connection
with his other property Mr. Page owns a farm in Dubuque County, which
is under a high state of cultivation and adds materially to his income.
