Hamerle, Joseph (4 June 1869 19??)


JOSEPH HAMERLE, who conducts a wagon repair shop at No. 407 Sixth Street, Wausau, and is known as a competent blacksmith and horseshoer, has lived in America since 'he was fourteen years of age, but his birth took place in Germany, June 4, 1869. His father, Valentine Hamerle brought his family to the United States in 1883, settling on a farm in Manitowoc County, Wis.  


Joseph Hamerle learned his trade in Manitowoc County and afterward worked as a journeyman horseshoer in that county and also in Marathon County after 1888. Five years later he went to Phillips, in Price County, Wis., where he worked for two years and then returned to Wausau, where he owns his building, which he has occupied since May, 1896. A man of industry and reliability, Mr. Hamerle does a very satisfactory business and is a highly respected citizen.


At Sheboygan, Wis., Mr. Hamerle was married to Miss Clara Harff and they have five children: Daniel, Raymond, Valentine, Gertrude and Isabel. The family belongs to St. Mary's Catholic Church, and Mr. Hamerle is a member of the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin.
