Strachota, Kilian (25 September 1869 - 19??)

Kilian Strachota, buyer and shipper of cattle and well known in the business in Marathon county for the last fifteen years, occupies his comfortable residence at No. 202 South Fourth street, Wausau, of which city he has been a resident for the same length of time. He was born in Fond du Lac County, Wis., September 25, 1869, and is a son of John and Geneva Strachota, both of whom died there.

Kilian Strachota was reared on the home farm and attended the public schools and continued to work for his father until he married, after which he rented the farm from his mother for five years. After that he moved to Marathon County and having secured an interest in a saw mill near Athens, he went to work in the woods, in Halsey Township, where he continued for a year and then came to Wausau. Here he bought the Farmers Home Hotel and Saloon, which he conducted for almost four years, since selling that business having been engaged in handling cattle, in the buying and shipping of which Mr. Strachota does about $110,000 worth of business annually.

On January 30, 1894, Mr. Strachota was married in Fond du Lac County, to Miss Maggie Schill, a native of that county, and they have had six children: Jennie, Albert, Maggie, Lena, Eleanor and Oscar, all of whom survive except Eleanor, who passed away when not quite one year old. The family belongs to St. Mary's Catholic Church and Mr. Strachota belongs to the Catholic Knights of Wisconsin. He has always taken more interest in business than in political life but has firm convictions of right and expediency and is never afraid to disclose them when called upon.
