CARL G. SPAETE, who is engaged in general farming and dairying in Washburn Township, was born in Schlasinn, Germany, Jan. 20, 1892. His father, Gustave, was a blacksmith in the village of Maliers, near Breslow, who came to this country alone, although married, locating in Milwaukee, where three months later his family came. After staying there six weeks they came to Clark County, where Gustave Spaete rented eighty acres of wild land in Section 30, Grant Township. Two years later he bought forty acres of wild land in Washburn Township, where he now lives, having increased the size of his farm by the purchase of two more tracts of forty acres each. Carl G. Spaete acquired his education in the district school at Carlisle Corners. He worked out a little and also on the home farm, and when 18 years old purchased eighty acres of wild land in Section 7, Washburn Township, which he is now clearing in winter. Iris mother, before her marriage, was Louise Kranz, her parents, Ernest and Louise Kranz, being farming people who came to this country from Germany in 1892. Carl G. Spaete has one sister, Louise, now the wife of Joseph Horeled, a farmer of Washburn Township.
