Ludwig Bier Biography
Ludwig Bier, boot and shoe maker and merchant, Erie, was born in Hesse-Cassel, Germany, Oct. 29. 1845, and at fourteen learned the boot and shoe making, and followed this occupation there until 1895, when he came to America and settled in Erie, where he has since been successfully identified with his present industry.

Eight sons were born to this union, viz.: William George, John Frederick and Fred (both deceased), Charles Frederick, Ludwig Rudolf, Arthur Russell, Edward (deceased) and Frank Garfield. Mr. Bier and family are members of the German Evangelical Church. He is an active member of the K. of P. society.
