KUHN BROTHERS, PAUL C. EMIL, who are successfully carrying on general farming in section 16, Washburn Township, were born in Saxony, Germany Emil, Feb. 27, 1876, and Paul C., Sept. 12, 1878. They were brought to America by their parents in 1881, locating near Milwaukee, where they received a good education and grew to manhood. They worked at various occupations, saving their money, and in 1903 they purchased eighty acres of land in Section 16, Washburn Township, Clark County, the tract being all wild and timbered. They worked early and late and in due time built up a fine farm, with a good dwelling and substantial buildings thereon, and today they and their families are numbered the representative people of the county. While developing their farming the early years they used to work out summers to earn money to on, while they cleared the farm in the winter. They followed general farming, their cattle being of the Holstein breed and of good grade. They are sober, industrious citizens, and take a lively interest in whatever seems to be for the betterment of their county. Both brothers are interested in the Shortville Dairy Company and Farmers Elevator at Neillsville. Paul C. was secretary of the Dairy Company for eight years, and is now its treasurer.


He was married in June, 1913, to Ethel Carter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James A. Carter, of Washburn Township. He and his wife have one child, Ernest Paul, who was born May 29, 1914. Emil Kuhn is unmarried. Ernest Kuhn and Emily Hamenn, parents of Kuhn brothers, were both natives of Germany, where they were married in 1874. In his native land Ernest was a carpenter. They came to America in 1881, their family locating near Milwaukee, where he followed his trade until 1906, when they came to Clark County and bought forty acres. They now reside in Washburn Township.
