In 1882 the Beyreis family came to Marathon County and ever since has been identified with this section. Prior to the Civil War, however, Charles Beyreis, the father, had emigrated to "America and for three years of this war he was a soldier in the Federal service, a member of a New York infantry regiment. After the war he returned to Germany and married there and remained until after the birth of four of his nine children, all of whom survive: Edward, who lives in Marathon County; Bertha, who is the wife of Frank Feldbruegg, of this county; Annie, who is the wife of Philip Conrad of Rib Lake, Wisconsin; Kurt A.; Richard, who lives in Marathon County; Charles, who lives in Wausau; Lena, who is the wife of Louis Hall, of this county; Emma, who is the wife of John M.

In 1910 he was elected to the office of clerk of the circuit and municipal courts, on the Democratic ticket, and subsequently was reelected and has served continuously since January 1, 1911.
