---Sauter, Anton (2 April 1860 19??)


ANTON SAUTER, justice of the peace in the town of Stettin, is a leading citizen and extensive farmer in this part of Marathon County, owning 200 acres of excellent land situated in sections 8 and 17 making his home in the former section, seven miles northeast of Marathon City. He belongs to one of the solid old German families established here more than fifty years ago and was born April 2, 1860, in Marathon County, Wis., on a farm one-half mile south and one-half mile east of his present home farm. He is a son of Ottmar and Theresa (Loy) Sauter.


Ottmar Sauter was born in Wurttemberg, Germany, in 1829, and came to America in 1857 and shortly afterward reached Wisconsin, working on a farm at Watertown before coming to the town of Stettin, Marathon County. He married Theresa Loy, who was born in Austria, a daughter of Anton Loy, and the following children were born to them: Anton, Frank, John, Rosa, Mary, Elizabeth, Francis, Annie, Clara and Ottmar. Clara died in 1881, her burial being at Marathon City. The father, with the help of his sons, cleared up a large farm and was able to assist his children in getting established in life, giving a farm to both the oldest and the youngest sons. When ready to retire from active farm work he moved to Marathon City and lived there into his seventy-fifth year. He was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church, as was also his wife, who died when aged sixty-one years, and their burial was in the church cemetery. He was a stockholder in the Mathie Brewing Company.  


Anton Sauter attended the public schools in boyhood, and afterward, following his father's example, kept busy, working in the nearby mills and on the farm, up to the time of marriage, and then took charge of his present farm which his father gave him as a reward for years of faithful service. Here Mr. Sauter has made all the improvements and has cleared fifty acres of his land by himself. It is well adapted to crop production and also to the growing of cattle and Mr. Sauter devotes considerable attention to raising fine Guernsey and Holstein cattle, his herds making an excellent showing in comparison with others in this section. His two brothers, Frank and John, are prospering in South Dakota. The former, a cigar-maker by trade, took up a homestead in South Dakota in 1885 and still later a tree claim there. John Sauter is a carpenter by trade and continues to work at the same, renting out the farm he acquired in South Dakota. The Sauters are all substantial men and reliable citizens of their communities. Anton Sauter has been clerk of School District No. 5, town of Stettin, since 1893 ^"d for the past ten years has been a justice of the peace.  


On October 30, 1888, Mr. Sauter was married to Miss Catherine Lang, a daughter of George and Kunigunda (Temple) Lang, former residents of the town of Cassel. To Mr. and Mrs. Sauter the following children have been born: Joseph, born August 24, 1889, died May 24, 1890; Mary, born October 16, 1890; Regina, born January 7, 1892; Edward, born May 16, 1893, died August 17, 1893; Annie, born June 2, 1894, died August 25, 1894; Frances, born July 28, 1895; Frank, born August 3, 1897, died November 17, 1898; Adalina, born April 22, 1899; Emma, born November 11, 1900; Olive, born July 24, 1902; Laura, born May 9, 1904; Anton, born July 3, 1905; Flora, born July 23, 1966; and Cecelia, born May 6, 1910.
