Hahnheiser, Paul (1857 19??)


PAUL HAHNHEISER, furrier, who has been in this business at Wausau since he came here in 1887, is a man of established business reliability and a highly respected citizen. Like many other of the substantial men of Wausau, he was born in Germany, in 1857, and learned his trade under his father, Leopold Hahnheiser, and an uncle, it being a family trade.  

Mr. Hahnheiser has been identified with the fur trade since he was fifteen years of age and his knowledge of furs and their treatment, their fashioning into garments and their preservation is complete. From Germany he went to London, England, and from there, two and one-half years later, in 1885, came to America and two years afterward established himself at Wausau. He owns the brick building in which his store is located and his residence which adjoins it.  


In the city of Philadelphia, Pa., Mr. Hahnheiser was married to Miss Hattie Hunple, and they have five children: Paul, Lorton, Magdalena, Ruth and Hattie. The family belongs to the Catholic Church and Mr. Hahnheiser is a member of the Catholic Order of Foresters.
