Rosenberry, Marvin Bristol (12 February 1868 19??)

 

 

MARVIN BRISTOL ROSENBERRY, attorney at law at Wausau and a member of the prominent law firm of Kreutzer, Bird, Rosenberry & Okoneski, has been a resident of this city for the past twenty years. He was born in Medina County, O., February 12, 1868, and is a son of Samuel C. and Mary (Hitchcock) Rosenberry, and a grandson of Samuel Rosenberry, who moved from Montgomery County, Pa., to Medina County, O., about 1840.  

 

Samuel C. Rosenberry, who still resides with his wife on his farm in Kalamazoo County, Mich., to which he came in 1868, from Medina County, O., is one of the highly respected retired residents of that section. In 1862 he enlisted for service in the Civil War, entering Co. I, 103rd O. Vol. Inf., and remained until the close of hostilities, receiving his honorable discharge in 1865. He is a carpenter by trade and for many years of active life followed farm pursuits. On September 20, 1866, he was married in Ohio to Mary Hitchcock and a family of four sons and four daughters was born to them, namely: Marvin B.; Alice, who is the wife of Herman Stofflet, a farmer in Montana; Bertha, who is the wife of Jason Harrison, residing in Kalamazoo county, Mich.; Erva, who is the wife of Fred Hitchcock, a farmer in Cass county, Mich.; Ada, who is the wife of John Stofflet, a dentist in business at Bishop, Calif.; Walter Samuel, who is manager of the Rose Lake Lumber Company, at Rose Lake, Idaho; David Dudley, who is superintendent of the Elk River Lumber Company, of Elk River, Idaho; and Harry Lloyd, who died August 25, 1900.  

 

Marvin B. Rosenberry was six months old -when his parents came to Michigan. He attended the public schools and the State Normal School and then entered the University of Michigan and was graduated at Ann Arbor in the law class of 1893. In August, of that year, he opened his law office at Wausau, having prepared for college in the law office of Silverthorne, Hurley, Ryan & Jones, of this city. Mr. Rosenberry practiced alone for about eighteen months. On January 1, 1895, he became associated with partners and the firm of Bump, Kreutzer & Rosenberry continued until January 1, 1901, when it was dissolved, following which the firm of Kreutzer, Bird & Rosenberry was organized, this continuing until Mr. Okoneski was admitted to partnership on September 1, 1908. Although his practice has absorbed the greater part of his time, Mr. Rosenberry has given some attention to outside interests and was one of the organizers, in 1905, of the Wisconsin Valley Trust Company, of which he is vice president and is also president of the Edgar Land Company and of other concerns. Although business and professional life have laid heavy burdens on him, Mr. Rosenberry has never been disposed to forget the duties of good citizenship and in what he believes to be a worthy cause is an enthusiastic worker. A stanch Republican he served as chairman of the county Republican committee from 1898 until 1904 and was very active in the campaign in the latter year.  

 

On September 2, 1897, Mr. Rosenberry was married to Miss Catherine Landfair, daughter of Capt. John A. and Florence (Winslow) Landfair, and they have two children: Catherine and Samuel Landfair, a daughter, Florence, being deceased. The family belongs to St. John's Episcopal Church, in which Mr. Rosenberry is junior warden. He is a Knight Templar Mason and an Elk and belongs to the leading organizations of his profession in the country and to the University Club at Madison and the Wausau City and the Wausau Country Clubs.
