Wischulke, William (History 1858)







----Source: 1918 History of Clark County, Wisconsin

WILLIAM WISCHULKE, a thriving farmer of Section 18, Lynn Township, was born in Schlasinn, Germany, June 27, 1858. His parents came to the United States in 1866 with four children: William, Elizabeth, Anne and Carrie. Locating in Clark County, Wis., Gottlieb, the father, bought 120 acres of land in Section 18, Lynn Township, and, building a log house and barn, set to work to clear and develop a farm-a task that he in time accomplished. On this place the son William was reared, in early youth helping his father and later going into the woods for the winter logging and assisting on the drive in spring. This occupation, alternated with farming in the summer, he followed for twenty-two years. On May 7, 1882, he was married to Dora Hanke, daughter of Gottlieb Hanke, her father being a farmer who came to this country from Germany in 1868, she having been born in Schlasinn, Germany, Dec. 6, 1862. He has since resided on his farm in Section 18, which he obtained from the family estate. He has eighty acres of land and is conducting a good farming business.


He and his wife have three children: Clara, now Mrs. Moldenhauer, a farmer of Clark County Edward, who is residing at home, and Walter, who has a farm of his own in Clark County.
