Jacob Sieg. Indianapolis' enormous and substantial development has created an active market for the superior grades of brick, and thus has been developed one of the greatest industries here. Other cities receive their brick, as a rule, from a distance. Indianapolis, on the other hand, has several of the finest yards in Indiana, within or near her boundaries. One of the active, thoroughgoing men engaged in this line of business is Jacob Sieg, who for ten years has been active as a brick manufacturer. He is a man of the soundest judgment and marked executive ability and is specially qualified to guide aright such important interests as these. Mr. Sieg owes his nativity to Ripley County, Indiana, born February 25, 1856, and is a son of Godfred and Maggie (Wagner) Sieg, both natives of Germany. Before marriage both came to the United States, and were married in the Buckeye State, where they resided many years. The mother is now deceased, but the father resides I Ripley County, Indiana, where he is engaged in farming. They were the parents of nine children, as follows: Louisa, single and a resident of Indianapolis; Catherine married Andrew Ramsberger and now resides in this city; Frederick married Miss Susan Biel, and makes his home in Ripley County, Indiana; Maggie, now living in Greensburg, Indiana, has been twice married, but both her husbands are deceased (she first married Peter Mack, and after his death, George Clark); Sarah, single, resides in Ripley County, Indiana; Henry, also a resident of Ripley County, is single; Jacob, subject; Sophia, single, and a resident of Ripley County; and John, single and a resident of Ripley County. Our subject, who is expert in all that concerns brick making, gives his undivided attention to this business, and has met with unusual success. He is single.
