CHRISTIANER, GEORGE H. , agriculturist, Morgan County, Ill., living on his farm in Section 34, Meredosia township, was born near Beardstown, Cass County, Ill., October 18, 1858, the son of J. F. and A. M. (Hobrook) Christianer, both natives of Germany. In 1836 the father, who was a farmer, emigrated to America from Hanover, Germany. George H. Christianer was educated in the schools of Cass County, and when of age engaged in farming on his own account. In 1885, he moved to his present farm and now owns an estate of 220 acres located in Sections 34 and 35. He was married October 16, 1884, to Sophia Hofener, daughter of Fred Hofener of Christian County, and a prominent farmer whose home was then near Taylorville. To Mr. Christianer and wife have been born three children-Bertha, Otto and Rosa (who died in infancy). Mr. Christianer and family are members of the Methodist Episcopal Church, at Meredosia, and he is a Republican in politics. His farm is well improved, and has been brought to its present high state of cultivation largely by himself.
