Marth, Frank (23 February 1854 19??)

 

FRANK MARTH,* a substantial and well known citizen, residing in section 27, Hamburg town, was born in Germany, February 23, 1854, a son of Carl and Fredricka (Holke) Marth. His parents on coming from Germany settled in the town of Hamburg, this county, and engaged in fanning, the father dying on the farm at the age of seventy-five years, and his wife, the mother of our subject, dying in Wausau, at the age of seventy. They were industrious, law-abiding people and members of the Lutheran Church. Carl Marth being a Democrat in politics; he once served as supervisor of Hamburg. They were the parents of eight children, of whom six are now living and residing in Marathon County, Wis.  

 

Frank Marth was thirteen years of age when he accompanied his parents to Hamburg. At an early age he began to be useful to them, working on the farm in summer and logging in the woods in winter. He is now the owner of 440 acres of land, 120 of which are in the town of Maine and the rest in Hamburg, in section 27, in which his dwelling is located. Of this land about seventy-five acres in the town of Maine are cleared and 100 in Hamburg, the rest being still in timber.  A Democrat, like his father, Mr. Marth has taken an active part in public affairs. He has served as supervisor of Hamburg and was town treasurer for nineteen years. He then served again on the board of supervisors and was chairman of the board for five years, and in the present year (1913) declined further service. He is president of the Berlin Fire & Lighting Company, and is a stockholder in and ex-president of the Hamburg Creamery Company. He is a member of the Lutheran Church, which he has served as treasurer.  

 

Mr. Marth was married in 1884 to Amelia Lange of the town of Stettin, this county, and daughter of Fred Lange. Their children are: Arthur, Alden, Paul, Ella, Walter, Emil, Frankie, Hilda, Lillie, Leo and Harry, all of whom are living.
