Briese, Oscar H. (19 February 1875 19??)


OSCAR H. BRIESE, who is one of Wausau's industrious, useful and well known business men, his carriage and wagon making plant being at No. 407 Sixth Street, came here from Columbia County, Wisconsin, where he was born February 19, 1875. His parents are August and Bertha (Frick) Briese. They were born, reared and married in Germany, and the father learned the wagon-making business before he came to the United States and located in Columbia County, Wisconsin, where he yet lives.  


Oscar H. Briese learned his business with his father and worked with him for three years before coming to Wausau, having previously worked for three years in the railroad car shops at Creston, Iowa. In addition to manufacturing wagons and carriages he has a department for saw filing. His first location after establishing himself at Wausau was at No. 23 Washington Street, in 1910 coming to his present place. His comfortable residence is at No. 702 Stark street, Wausau.


Mr. Briese was married in 1901 to Miss Minnie Esch, of Columbia County, Wis., and they have one daughter. Alberta. He is a man of quiet tastes, devoted to home and family and is identified with but one fraternal organization, that being the Royal Arcanum.
