Creator Sketch

A. H. Boegeman was born in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1851. He started his career as a priest but later left the church to learn the boot and shoemaking trade. Mr. Boegeman served in the Indiana Legislature before settling in Hillsboro, Texas.

Boegeman spent several years running his shoe business in Hillsboro until he sustained injuries leaving him disabled, shortly after the death of his wife in August 1926.

A. H. Boegeman died in 1930 at the age of 75 and was survived by his two daughters: Nina M. Boegeman, a graduate of Texas Christian University, and Mrs. C. D. Houghton, of New York.
