WILLIAM REISNER, who is successfully farming a tract of 100 acres of land in Section 3, Lynn Township, where he has resided nearly twenty-five years, was born in Sherman Township, Sheboygan County, Wis., July 18, 1873, son of Charles and Anne (Cucke) Reisner. The father was a farmer in Schlasinn, Germany, who came to the United States with his family in the early sixties by sailing vessel, being eight weeks on the water. Locating first in Milwaukee, they stayed there but a short time and then went on to Sheboygan County, where Charles Reisner bought eighty acres of wild land, on which he built a log house and barn and began the work of developing a farm. There he resided for about forty-five years, during which time he cleared all his land. He and his wife reared seven children-Gottlieb and Louise, who are now deceased August, who is a farmer on the old home place in Sheboygan County Charles, a farmer in Clark County William, Lynn Township Herman, who is farming at Whiternore, Iowa and Julius, a farmer at Rosebud, Mont. William Reisner grew to manhood on the family homestead in Sheboygan County, in his boyhood attending the district school in the neighborhood. He worked out to some extent, both in Shebygan County and in Clark County, to which he came when he was 21 years old. After being thus occupied here for three years, he bought his present farm of 100 acres in Lynn Township, Section 3, and worked on it while residing for two years longer at his brother's.

On Dec. 6, 1899, he was united in marriage with Emrna Faber, who was born Dec. 5, 1881, in Marshfield, Wis., her father, Peter Faber, being now a farmer in Clark County. After his marriage, Mr. Reisner took up his residence on the farm with his wife, and has since been engaged in its development and cultivation, giving his chief attention, however, to dairy farming. He has made good progress and is one of the prosperous citizens of his township. He was treasurer of the school board for three years, and served four years as school clerk. He and his wife have two children-Margaret, and Elmer, who died in 1916, age 9 years 1 month and 9 days.
