Henry Sorg

M, b. 1838, d. 15 December 1928
Father*Philip John Sorg
Mother*Mary Hiltz
     HENRY SORG. One of the best known and highly respected residents
of Sauk County is Henry Sorg, who now lives retired on his
valuable farm of 414 acres, which is situated in Troy Township. For
many years before retirement he led the quiet, steady, industrious life
of a farmer, devoting himself entirely to the peaceful pursuits of agriculture,
but there was a time when, for three long, wearisome, dangerous
years, he was a soldier in the Union army and marched and fought with courage, self sacrifice and determination side by side with
other brave men, and through their combination of effort the disunion
of the states was prevented. Not gladly but from a sense of duty he
responded when President Lincoln issued his first call for patriots,
and when his duty had been well performed he quietly returned home
and again took up the peaceful pursuits that meant much more to him
than military glory. During his long residence in Sauk County he has
proved a man of solid worth and sterling character.
Henry Sorg was born in Germany, in 1839. His parents were
Philip John and Mary (Hiltz) Sorg, both of whom were natives of
Germany. They immigrated to America when he was young, and
after living for two years in the State of New York made their way
to Washington County, Wisconsin. The father was a man of great
industry and he desired to establish a permanent home in Wisconsin.
He worked as a farmer for five years in Washington County and then
came to Sauk County and bought a farm of 160 acres in Honey Creek
Township. He cleared that land and lived on it for twelve years and
then moved to Troy Township and located on the place on which Henry
Sorg now lives. The father died on this farm in 1900 and the mother
died two years later.
Henry Sorg grew to manhood in Honey Creek Township and
attended 'the district school as opportunity was afforded. He assisted
his father on the farm until 1861, when he enlisted for service in the
Civil war, becoming a member of Company D, Ninth Wisconsin Volunteer
Infantry. Mr. Sorg served three years in this organization and
took part in many battle engagements but sustained no permanent
injury, and at the close of his term of enlistment was honorably discharged.
When Henry Sorg returned from the army he was married shortly
afterward to Miss Caroline Kruhl, a daughter of August Kruhl and
wife, natives of Germany, but then residents of Honey Creek Township.
Seven children were born to Mr. and Mrs. Sorg, namely: Carrie,
deceased, who was the wife of Marion Farris; Henry, who married and
lives in Sauk City; Hattie, who married George Barto and they live
/2 mile west of Mr. Sorg; Philip, who resides on his father's farm,
carries on the farm industries, and has a family of his own; Fred, who
lives with his family on his farm in South Dakota'; William, who is a
resident of St. Paul, Minnesota; and Louisa, who is deceased, was the
wife of John Baker.
After his marriage Henry Sorg settled on the next farm west of the
one on which he now lives, containing 220 acres, which he bought and
there all his children were born. He then came to his present farm,
where he has 414 acres of well developed land. His main business was
general farming for many years, but he also raised fine stock and to
some extent engaged in dairying. Whatever Mr. Sorg undertook he
accomplished through his industry and good judgment and he became
so successful a farmer that many of his neighbors from time to time
adopted his methods.
In politics Mr. Sorg has been a republican since -he ast his first vote
but he has never been anxious to serve in public office, though, owing to his interest in general education he accepted membership on. the
school board and during the ten years that he so served his sound,
practical advice and counsel were recognized as being of great value,
both to the school children and to the taxpayers of the township. Mr.
Sorg is a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church at Castle Prairie.
