Alvah:ALVAH H. BEREMAN and Thomas A. Bereman were brothers and both prominent lawyers during their time, in Mount Pleasant. The former I knew well. We were members of the House in the Tenth General Assembly. We lived in adjoining counties, and I cordially supported him as a candidate for Speaker of the House, but he eventually gave way to Jacob Butler, of Muscatine, who appointed him Chairman of the Judiciary Committee. In that position he displayed fine legal acumen and ability. He was one of the ablest and most influential members of that legislative body, and left a decided impression upon the laws that were framed during it session. He occupied a high position in the profession. He subsequently removed to St. Louis and attained a corresponding one there. He died some years ago. He had been a soldier in the Civil War and was Colonel of the Forty-Fifth Iowa Infantry. [Recollections and Sketches of Notable Lawyers and Public Men of Early Iowa ... by Edward H. Stiles.
