CHARLES F. GOLDAMMER, proprietor of the old Goldammer homestead in Section 5, Pine Valley Township, was born on his present farm, April 28, 1887, son of Julius and Wilhehnina (Handt) Goldammer. Separate mention of his parents may be found elsewhere in this volume. Charles F., in his boyhood, attended the district school and subsequently continued his studies until he had reached a good high school standard, being, therefore, largely self-educated. Learning the cheese-making industry, he was employed at it from the age of 17 to that of 22 in different parts of the state, and at the end of that time he engaged in farming on the parental homestead, being now the owner of 280 acres of land, which was accumulated by his father. He raises a good grade of Holstein cattle and horses, and is a stockholder in the Pine Valley Butter and Cheese Company, and the Farmers' Co-operative Elevator and Lumber Company of Neillsville.


For three years Mr. Goldammer was a member of Company A, Third Regiment, Wisconsin National Guard. He has held the office of township clerk for three years, and at the election of 1914 ran for the office of county clerk, on the Republican ticket, making a good run. His place is well improved and two years ago he erected a good silo. He was married June 24, 1914,. to Rosa B. Puttkamer, a native of Clark County and daughter, of Fred Puttkamer. He and his wife have one child, who was born Feb. 19, 1916, and named Albert Charles.
