Goerling, Charles (21 February 1871 19??)


CHARLES N. GOERLING, under sheriff of Marathon County, belongs to one of the well known families of this section and was born at Wausau, Wis., February 21, 1871, and is a son of Nicholas and Henrietta Goerling, descendants of two of the oldest families of Marathon County.


Charles N. Goerling was reared at Wausau, attended school here and, with the exception of five years spent on a farm in the town of Stettin, has always been a resident of his native place. Prior to accepting his present responsible office, appointed to the same on January 6, 1913, by Sheriff Abraham, he was in the retail liquor business on Washington Street. For eighteen years Mr. Goerling was connected with the Wisconsin State Militia, a member of Co. G., 3rd Regiment, W. N. G., entering as a private and being promoted until, when he resigned from the organization he was lieutenant of his company. Lieutenant Goerling was no carpet soldier either, but took part with his regiment in its movements during the Spanish American war at Porto Rico.  


Mr. Goerling married Miss Marie Behm, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Behm, residents of Athens, Wis., for the last twenty-eight years, and our subject and wife have six children: Lillian, Carl, Elmer, Arthur, Grace and Edwin. He is somewhat active in politics as a wide-awake, interested citizen, while fraternally he is identified with the Eagles.
