Elmer Franz Heinrich Maschman was the ninth of thirteen children born to Ben and Anna Maschman. While his parents surname was Maschman (as indicated by numerous records and their burial markers), many records show Elmer and his brothers Loren and Melvin using the surname "Marschman" (with an 'r') once they reached adulthood.

Elmer joined the United States Army on April 5, 1945 at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas and had risen in rank to Staff Sergeant by the time he was discharged on December 6, 1946.

Family histories state that Elmer married Irene Brunkow on December 3, 1944, "before he went into the service". However he listed his marital status as single on his enlistment records dated the following April. After the war, Elmer and Irene moved to the town of Western where he farmed.
