Luebner, Oscar (27 December 1877 19??)

 

OSCAR A. LEUBNER, who is a prominent and substantial citizen of Wausau, Wis., active in both business and political circles, is proprietor of a large livery and sales stable and probably does more business in this line than any other liveryman in the county. He was born at Manitowoc, Wis., December 27, 1877, and is a son of Alfred and Rose Leubner, the latter of whom died in 1905.  

 

Oscar A. Leubner was reared at Manitowoc, attended school there and began to learn the drug business. In 1893 the family moved to Wausau and here the father embarked in business as a florist but later, on account of ill health, sold out to Mr. Phillipp and then he and his son started into the livery business, Oscar A., for two years previously having been a druggist for Dr. Taugher, at Marathon City. The partnership continued until 1910, when Oscar A. Leubner purchased his father's interest in the livery and sales stables and has fine and commodious quarters at Nos. 307-309 Fourth Street, which the firm purchased and took possession of in 1904. The business was started in what was known as the Edee barn, on the corner of Forest and Second streets, where it was carried on for seven years before removal to its present location. Mr. Luebner keeps at least twenty-five horses on hand and has suitable equipments of all kinds, including a funeral car. He has additional business interests, being a stockholder in both the First National and the Marathon County banks at Wausau.  

 

Mr. Leubner was married in 1901 to Miss Martha Kramrath of this city and they have one son, Lloyd. Active and interested at all times in the welfare of his home city, Mr. Leubner enjoys a large measure of public confidence and in the spring of 1912 was elected alderman in the First Ward, on the non-partisan ticket. He is identified with the fraternal order of the Modem Woodmen.
