CARL STANGE, assistant cashier of the First National Bank at Neillsville, Wis., was born at Schackstedt, Amholt, Germany, Sept. 24, 1859, son of Gotlieb and Frederica (Faatz) Stange. His parents came to the United States in 1875, bringing with them their six children, of whom the subject of this sketch was the eldest. They located in section 18, Sherwood township on forty acres of wild land, the place being thickly wooded and no roads in the vicinity. There was however, an old log building on the land, into which they moved. They 'began the work of improvement with nothing but their hands and were carrying supplies on their backs from NeiIlsville. In time Gotlieb Stange cleared up most of this farm, but neither he nor his wife reached old age, he dying when 54 years old, and she at the age of 43.
Carl Stange began his education in the common schools of Germany and later attended the district school in Washburn Township, this county, and the school in Neillsville. He grew to manhood on the farm, and became a regular farm and sawmill hand, being thus occupied for some years. For two years he was Deputy Register of Deeds, under Herman Schuster. Later he entered the Neillsville Bank as bookkeeper and assistant cashier, which position he held for twenty-seven and one-half years, the last two years being cashier. In 1914 he came to the First National Bank to take his present position as teller. He has shown good ability in financial matters and his courteous manners have made him popular with the patrons of the bank.
