Weinkauf, Edward G. (1868 19??)


EDWARD G. WEINKAUF, president and treasurer of the Weinkauf Bros. Clothing and Furnishing Company, at Wausau, is one of the city's enterprising and substantial business men. He was born in 1868, in the town of Texas, Marathon County, Wis., six miles from Wausau, and is a son of Carl and Augusta Weinkauf. The parents of Mr. Weinkauf were born, reared and married in Germany and from there came to the United States and to Wisconsin in 1866, settling on a farm in the town of Texas, Marathon County. The father at first engaged in farming and then bought a saw mill. Both parents survive and reside at Edgar, in Marathon County.  


Edward G. Weinkauf was reared on the home farm and worked for several years as a logger. He was twenty-five years old when he came to Wausau and entered the employ of his uncle, John Patzer, who conducted a saloon adjoining the Ritter & Deutsch Building. Later Mr. Weinkauf bought his uncle's interests and conducted the saloon until 1909 when he went into his present business, which is an incorporated concern, well managed and amply financed.


Just prior to coming to Wausau, Mr. Weinkauf was married to Miss Minnie Volkman, and they have two children, Arnold and Anesta, both of whom attend the Wausau High School.
