  • ALFRED TRUEB. Many productive and useful years have come and gone since Alfred Trueb took activei charge of the farm where he now resides in Honey Creek Township near the Village of Plain. Mr. Trueb is one of the progressive and successful men of Sauk County and has spent all his life in this one community. He was born on the home farm where he now resides on August 24, 1859. His parents, John and Elizabeth (Walder) Trueb, were both born in Switzerland, were married there, and arrived in Sauk County in 1854. On coming to this county John Trueb bought the homestead of 160 acres. Thirty acres had already been cleared, but it was largely through his individual industrious efforts that the remaining acreage was subdued to the uses of agriculture. Subsequently he acquired by tax
    sale forty acres more in Troy Township. John Trueb had much to do
    and very little to do with in the early days. He used oxen to perform
    the heavy work of the farm and also the hauling of produce to market at Merrimack and Spring Green. The breaking of the virgin soil was also performed with ox teams. His chief crops as a farmer were wheat and hops. John Trueb continued the active management of the old home farm until 1884, when he turned it over to his son Alfred and then went to live with his older daughter in Honey Creek Township, where he died in 1899. His wife passed away in 1878. They had six children: Anna, wife of Fred Mellentine, who died in Honey Creek Township in 1916; Barbara, who taught school for a number of years, and afterwards married M. Phifer and died in 1884; Mary, Mrs. Rudolf Alexander, living on a farm in South Dakota; Herman, who is married and lives in South Dakota; Salina, who died in childhood; and Alfred. All these children grew up on the old home farm and received their education in the local district school. Alfred Trueb has always lived at home and in 1884 he married, and from that time forward has managed the home place. The maiden name of his wife was Augusta Militine. They have one child, Lily, Mrs. Paul Zech. The mother of this daughter died, and in 1896 Mr. Trueb married Emelia Geise. They have a family of five children, all of them still at home, constituting a bright and attractive family circle. Their names are Edna, Lurena, Gilbert, William and Esther. Since taking over the old homestead thirty-three years ago Mr. Trueb has done much to increase its productiveness and its value. He has rebuilt structures and now has under his individual ownership 304 acres. This is devoted to mixed farming, and he has something more than a local reputation as a stock raiser and dairyman. He has been successful in the breeding of Norman horses and the Shorthorn Durham cattle. Mr. Trueb is a stockholder in the Sauk City Creamery. He is a republican and his family are members of the Black Hawk Church.

  • 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.
