The 1860 federal census shows Herman living in Milwaukee, Wisconsin with his wife, Cynthia B. Page and the following children: Katie, age 11, born in Wisconsin J.

Herman listed himself as a farmer that year, with real estate worth $40,000 and personal property worth $10,000.

On April 10, 1869, Herman put in for a passport for travel to Europe for his wife [unnamed, but described in detail], and their daughters Kate, age 20; and Anne, abe 10; and their son, Paul, 8 years old.

There are a number of property transactions around this time which indicate that Herman was speculating in land.

There was a description of him: Age: 55 Stature: 6' Forehead: full Eyes: blue Nose: straight Mouth: ordinary Chin: medium [?] Hair: grey Complexion: florid Face: oval
