Lang, Joseph Jr. (9 October 1886 – 19??)
JOSEPH LANG, JR., one of the leading citizens of the town of Cassel, resides in section 21, five miles southwest of Marathon City, owning 159 acres of excellent land lying in sections 21 and 17, Cassel. He was born at Neillsville, Wis., October 9, 1886, and is a son of John and Mary Waldkirch, and was left an orphan when six months old. At the age of five years he was adopted by Andrew and Benedicta (Bauman) Lang, who were early settlers in the town of Cassel. These good people reared the orphan child as their own and gave him their name, one on which he has always reflected credit.
Joseph Lang obtained his education in the district schools in the town of Cassel and the parochial school at Marathon City. He grew up a farmer and has always resided in Marathon County except during one year, when he traveled in the West. After his return he was married in the town of Cassel to Miss Matilda Lang, a daughter of Emil and Martha Lang, Emil and Andrew Lang being brothers and both fine men. After marriage the young people settled on the present farm which was already improved. They have one child, Emil, who is yet an infant. They are members of St. Mary's Catholic Church. In politics Mr. Lang is a Republican and takes an interest in public matters and commands public confidence to such a degree that in 1912 his fellow citizens elected him town assessor. He is a stockholder in the Cassel-Edgar-Emert Telephone Company.
