HENRY SCHUBRING, general farmer and well known citizen of the town of Wausau, who resides on his eighty acres situated six miles northeast of Wausau, was born on the old home place in 1877, and is a son of William Schubring, who, for many years was a highly respected farmer of this town. He was born in Germany and came from there to the United States when nineteen years of age, and when he reached Wisconsin he settled on the farm on which he spent the rest of his life, his death occurring July 10, 1904. He married Barbara Dick, who was also of German parentage, and they became the parents of eight children, Henry being the second in order of birth.  

 

After his school days Henry Schubring assisted in the work on the home farm and remained with his parents until he located on eighty acres received from his father and continued there until May 18, 1911, when he came to his present place, this being the old Rheinhart farm. Although he did not find it necessary to replace any of the buildings, he remodeled many of them and did other improving, taking pride in making this one of the best kept and most attractive properties on this road. Under his excellent methods his land proves very productive and Mr. Schubring is numbered with the town's prosperous citizens.  

 

In June, 1904, Mr. Schubring was married to Miss Lillie Harding, who was born in Marathon County, a daughter of Daniel and Minnie (Webber) Harding. Daniel Harding was a son of Valentine Harding and they came to Marathon County very early, from Illinois, and were among the pioneer millwrights, and Daniel Harding was also a farmer. He married Minnie Webber, who was born in Germany and she survived him and was married second to John Heckbarth. To her first marriage wife of Mr. Schubring; three children were born to her second marriage. Mr. and Mrs. Schubring have two interesting little daughters: Gertrude, who was born April 18, 1905; and Eleanor, who was born January 25, 1911. The family and all its connections belong to the Lutheran Church, of which Mr. Schubring is treasurer. In politics he does his own thinking and casts his vote for the candidate he feels sure is able and honest, without regard to party.
