ERIC SCHUBRING,* who carries on general farming and dairying on his 112 acres, situated seven miles northeast of Wausau, was born on the old Schubring place, in the town of Wausau, Marathon County. Wis., in 1877, and is a son of Frederick and Amelia (Ventzke) Schubring.
Frederick Schubring and wife were both born in Germany and he was an early settler in Marathon County, coming here in 1864. In 1866 he returned to Germany and was married there, and when he came back to Marathon County he settled on what is still known as the Schubring homestead. He was an industrious man and in the course of years accumulated a large fortune in land, owning 292 acres at one time, being one of the largest land owners in this section, and at the time of his death he still held 120 acres. He followed farming during all his active life, dying at the age of seventy-four years. His widow survives and lives on the old home place with her son, Leo. There were six children in the family and four survive: Frederick, who is in the lumber business at Wausau; Rhinold, Leo, and Eric.
Eric Schubring obtained his education in the public schools and afterward worked on the home farm until December, 1902, when he purchased his present place, on which he has made all the excellent improvements, including the building of the farm residence. He is a stockholder and is treasurer of the local creamery.
Mr. Schubring married Miss Anna Hafermann, who was born in the town of Wausau, and they have three children: Verna, Herbert and Orval. The family attends the Lutheran Church. In national political contests Mr. Schubring is a Republican, but in local matters he exercises his own judgment, putting man before party.
