Deininger, Louis (2 April 1859 – 19??)


 LOUIS DEININGER, who is one of Marathon County’s well known and highly respected men, resides on his valuable farm of 160 acres lying in section 26, town of Cassel, was born at McKeesport, Pa., April 2, 1859, and is a son of Anson Michael and Maggie (Herly) Deininger. Anson Michael Deininger was born in Germany and was sixteen years of age when he came to America and went to work in coal mines in Pennsylvania. He married Maggie Herly, who was also born in Germany, and they had seven children, four of whom yet live. Louis was about seventeen years old when the family came to Marathon County and located on the present home farm. At that time the entire tract was covered with heavy timber but the father, with the help of his sons cleared ninety acres. The father put up a residence on the site of which Louis Deininger later built the present comfortable brick residence. The parents died on this farm, the father living to the age of ninety-two years. Louis Deininger attended the schools of Burnham, Pa., but after coming to Marathon county found little time for books, work awaiting him on the farm and in the woods and in the saw mill at Mosinee. He here carries on general farming and on this place all his children have been born.


He married Miss Annie Golbach, who was born in the town of Cassel, a daughter of Albert Golbach, and they have three children: Joseph, Rudy and Mary. The family belongs to St. Mary's Catholic Church. Mr. Deininger is a stockholder in the Edgar-Cassel Telephone Company, in the State Bank at Marathon City, and in the Marathon City Brewing Company. While never active in political life Mr. Deininger is a well informed man concerning public matters, and never fails to cast his vote for the Democratic Party.
