WILLIAM ERNEST SANGER is a well known and respected resident of Fremont Township (in an area once known as Sauerkraut City). He is engaged in farming and dairying with profitable results, was born in Section 35, this township, May 21, 1880, the scene of his birth being the log cabin erected by his father, Gottlieb Sanger, mentioned elsewhere in this volume. Brought up on his parents' farm, he attended district school in his boyhood and when a little older became familiar with all the various branches of agriculture, an occupation he has since followed with much success. In 1903 he took over the old homestead, on which he has made various improvements, including the erection of a modern frame house, to replace the old brick structure; a basement barn, 40 by 70 feet in size; a machine shop, 18 by 52 feet, and a stone silo, 14 by 40 feet. Mr. Sanger raises Holstein cattle, a good grade of horses and Poland-China hogs; also some Shropshire sheep.

He is a member of the Farmers' Co-operative Elevator Company at Chili, being one of its board of directors, and is a stockholder in the bank at Chili and the Wausau Packing Plant. He has also held office on the board of the German Lutheran Church of Fremont Township, of which he is a member. His farm contains 120 acres, and besides raising stock and the usual crops, he also carries on dairying successfully. Mr. Sanger was married, May 1, 1907, to Amanda Viergutz, of Lynn Township, daughter of Albert and Albertina Viergutz. He and his wife have three children, Leona, Ella and Wilbur.
