Muehlenkamp, Rev. A. E. (31 January 1870 - 19??)

Rev. A. E. Muehlenkamp, pastor of St. Anthony's Catholic Church at Athens, Wis., has had charge of this parish since July 17, 1896, having been assistant priest at Marshfield, Wis., for one year previously. Father Muehlenkamp was born in Monroe County. Wis., January 31, 1870, and is a son of John and Caroline (Stute) Muehlenkamp. The parents of Father Muehlenkamp were born, reared and married in Germany. In 1854, in search of better opportunities for their children and more comfortable surroundings for themselves, they came to the United States and selected a farm in Waukesha County, Wis., for a home, remaining on that land for ten years before moving to another farm in Monroe County. There the rest of their quiet, useful lives were passed and their death took place, burial being at Summit, Wis. They were faithful Catholics and the home influence was such that three of their children chose a religious life. There were seven in the family, all surviving: Frederick; Bertha, who entered the Franciscan Convent at La Crosse, Wis., is known as Sister Cecelia and is now connected with St. Mary's Domestic Science School, at Sparta, Wis.; Charles; John; Theresa, who is known as Sister Andrea, in the Convent at La Crosse; A. E.; and Margaret, who remains with her brother, Father Muehlenkamp, as his housekeeper.

Father Muehlenkamp first attended the common schools in Monroe County and afterward took a business course at Milwaukee. Determining then to enter the church, he pursued his classical studies at St. Lawrence College, Calvary, Wis., studied philosophy and literature at Montreal, Canada, and completed his course in theology at St. Francis Seminary, in Milwaukee County. Wis. He was ordained at the La Crosse Cathedral, June 16, 1896, by Right Reverend James Schwebach. He has a large parish to oversee and is much beloved by his congregation and respected and esteemed by those of other communions.
