  • MR. AND MRS. ALBRED BERNIEN. Mr. Alfred BERNIEN, widely known implement dealer of the city of Reedsburg, was born May 20, 1891, in the town of Ironton, Sauk Co., Wis., son of John and Minnie (SASS) BERNIEN. His father was a native of Macklinberg, Germany, born in the year 1859. At the age of eleven years, in company with his parents, John and Marie (DRENKHAHN) BERNIEN, he came to America. The family spent a short time in Chicago, and then came to the town of Ironton, where our subject's father grew to manhood and married Minnie SASS. This lady was born in Germany, 1871, and came with her parents to the United States when she was but a small child. Her parents were Henry and Maria SASS. After their marriage John and Minnie BERNIEN located in the city of Reedsburg, where their deaths occurred, his June 17, 1911, hers, Dec. 10, 1922.
    Alfred BERNIEN grew to manhood in Reedsburg, where he always resided. He was educated in the Reedsburg High School, and early in life engaged in the sale of farm implements, in which business he has been very successful.
    On June 22, 1916, he was united in marriage to Miss Rosetta HUEBING, of Reedsburg. She was born in this city, May 24, 1893, and was a daughter of William S. and Henrietta (LUEHRSON) HUEBING. Her father was a native of Germany, born Aug. 14, 1860, son of Henry and Elizabeth (HARMS) HUEBING. In 1862 the HUEBING family came to this country, locating on a farm south of Reedsburg. William S. HUEBING grew to manhood on that farm and continued to reside upon it even after his marriage, which occurred March 20, 1881. A few years later the family removed to Reedsburg, where, for about eight years, he was a carpenter and contractor. Returning then to the farm, they resided there until about 1915, when they again located in Reedsburg, where they now reside. Rosette HUEBING grew to womanhood in the home of her parents, and since her marriage to Alfred BERNIEN, has been a constant resident of the city of Reedsburg.
    Mr. and Mrs. BERNIEN have two children, Elenor Lloyd, born Oct. 1, 1918; and John William, born Feb. 27, 1923.
    Mr. BERNIEN is one of the foremost farm implement dealers in Sauk County and enjoys a country-wide patronage. As a public spirited citizen of Reedsburg he enjoys considerable prominence in local affairs, and for the last nine years has been alderman from the First War. For several years he has been a member of the Chamber of Commerce, of which organization he was president during the year of 1927. Mr. and Mrs. BERNIEN are active in the Country Club and zealous members of the St. Peters Lutheran Church.
