     When he was seven years of age, he came to America with his parents, Christ Gramm and Christina (Strobel) Gramm and three other children. They settle north of Bethune at the Tuttle community where he grew up and later worked on the Cox ranch and the J. J. Pugh ranch on the Republican river. He then took up his homestead and started his own farm and cattle operation. His main interest was taking care of his cattle and he kept this interest all his life.

     In 1916 he was united in marriage to Lydia Stutz of Bethune. To this union five children were born, three sons and two daughters.

Preceding him in death were his parents; three brothers, Jake, Christ and Bill; and one sister (Elizabeth) Mrs. John Schaal.

     Mr. & Mrs. Gramm celebrated their golden wedding anniversary in 1966 and in November of 1976 they were again able to have their relatives and friends with them to celebrate their 60th anniversary.
