Hohmann, Emil R. (1866 – 19??)
EMIL R. HOHMANN, senior member of the firm of Hohmann & Kuntz, hardware merchants at No. 116 Scott street, Wausau, is one of the old hardware men here, having been in the business for a quarter of a century. He was born in 1866, in Germany, and was four years old when his parents brought him to the United States, they settling in Milwaukee Wis., where his father, F. Hohmann, followed the mason trade. Six years afterward the family moved to Wausau.
From the age of ten to fifteen years, Emil R. Hohman attended school at Wausau and then went to Chicago, where he remained five years during which time he learned the upholstering trade. After coming back to Wausau he entered the employ of R. Baumann and continued with him for thirteen years, then went into partnership with William Kuckuk, the firm during its existence of four years being Kuckuk & Hohmann, his location being at present place, but for eight years afterward was in business for himself on Clinton Street, west side. On January 1, 1912, he bought the stock and store of William Kuckuk, with whom he had formerly been in partnership and returned to the old stand, having B. E. Kuntz as his present partner.
Mr. Hohmann married Miss Emma Marquardt, of Wausau, and they have four children: Irene, Elmer, Adelbert and Harold. He is identified fraternally with the Owls and the Modern Woodmen.
