Fred Dankemyer, 307 West Sixth Street, was born in Sheboygan County, Wisconsin, on December 7, 1881. His parents moved to Fremont, Clark County, when he was a year and one-half. After his school days were over, he assisted on his father’s farm until he was 17, after which he operated a portable sawmill and threshing outfit at various points in Clark County for nine years. Disposing of this equipment in 1911, he bought his father’s farm and operated it until 1919. During each fall while running this farm, he served as an engineer of threshing machines in the harvest fields in the vicinity of Ledgerwood, North Dakota. Next he conducted a restaurant, and pool and billiard parlor at Chili, two and one-half years, following which he moved to this city. Since coming to this city, he has followed carpenter work most of the time.
