John A. Hippler San Juan County, New Mexico

John A. Hippler, of Bloomfield, was born in Boston, Massachusetts, in 1861, and was graduated from the Boston School of Technology as a civil and mechanical engineer in 1882. He came into the Territory with the South Kansas surveying corps about 1886, and was located at Chama for about eighteen years, conducting a small Indian trading store. He also spent considerable time hunting relics. About four years ago he removed to San Juan County, taking up his abode at Bloomfield, and in 1903 he purchased a ranch of sixty acres, which he has since conducted. It is devoted to the raising of fruit and alfalfa and last year he cleared nine hundred dollars from twenty-two acres of land devoted to alfalfa, apples and wheat. He is practical in all of his methods and has made good use of his opportunities. At present he is justice of the peace for precinct No. 6.
