---Schubring, William (18?? – 10 July 1904)
WILLIAM SCHUBRING, deceased, for many years was a well known farmer in the town of Wausau and one of its most respected citizens. He was born in Germany but from boyhood desired to try his fortune in America and his opportunity came when he was nineteen years of age and he landed in the United States. He had prepared to come directly to Marathon County, Wis., and when he reached here he located on the farm on which one of his sons now lives. He followed farming and lumbering on the river and during his entire active life was a man of industry and thrift. He did not, however, live into old age, his death occurring on July 10, 1904, when aged fifty-five years. At that time he owned 120 acres of improved land, which he had assisted to clear, and had put up all the substantial farm buildings. His burial was in the cemetery of the Lutheran church in the town or Wausau.
William Schubring married Miss Barbara Deck, daughter of Christian Deck who was born in Germany and brought his family to America. Eight children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Schubring, namely: Fred, who married Louise Borchert, of Columbus, Wis., and they have two children: Lydia and Elmer; Henry, who married Lily Harding, and they have two children: Gertrude and Eleanor; August, who married Talitha Lange and they have two children: Orville and Evelyn; Clara, who married William Trittin and they have two children: Lawrence and Henry; Adolph, who lives at home; Mathilda, who is the wife of Gustave Prey, and they have a daughter named Ruth; and Helen and George, both living at home. Mr. Schubring never took a very active part in politics but usually, voted with the Republican Party. He was a member of the Lutheran Church and gave it support according to his means.
