8 June 1900Reedsburg, Sauk, WisconsinHe was listed as the head of a family on the 1900 Census at Reedsburg, Sauk, Wisconsin.2
     He continued to be engaged in general farming and stock raising operations until March, 1911, when he retired from active work and moved
to Reedsburg, where he purchased a comfortable home at No. 433 North
Locust Street. Here his death occurred November 7, 1915, and here his
widow still resides. Mlr. Grote was a republican in his political sympathies
and support and took an active part in local affairs, being for
several years chairman of the township board of Reedsburg. His standing
in the community was that of an honorable and substantial man,
honest in his engagements and faithful in his friendships. A supporter
of good movements, he was also one of the founders of St. Peter's Church,
of which he and his wife were faithful members.
On October 13, 1867, Mr. Grote was married to Miss Dorothea Huebing,
who was born September 6, 1849, in Germany, a daughter of
Henry and Elizabeth (Harms) Huebing. The parents of Mrs. Grote
came to the United States in October, 1861, and located in Westfield
Township, Sauk County, where Mr. Huebing worked on a farm until
he had accumulated sufficient means with which to purchase a property
of his own in Reedsburg Township. His first residence was a log house,
but after he had cleared and improved his farm he erected more commodious buildings. In the evening of life this reliable citizen and substantial farmer moved to Reedsburg, where his death occurred in January, 1913, when he was eighty-six years of age, Mrs. Huebing having
died aged eighty years, November 25, 1902, while living on the farm in
Reedsburg Township with her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs.
Grote. Mr. and Mrs. Huebing had the following children: Dorothea,
now Mrs. Grote; Catherine, who is the widow of Bernhard Conerus;
William, who is the owner of the family homestead in Reedsburg Township;
Henry; and Annie, who is the wife of Fred Schutte, of Reedsburg.
Mr. and Mrs. Grote became the parents of seven children: Levi,
who died at the age of twelve years; Bertha, who is the wife of John
Sherhorn, of Reedsburg; William, resident of Reedsburg; Albert, twin
of William, who died in infancy; Pauline, who is the wife of Charles
Bodenstab, a lawyer of Chicago; Otto, who owns the Grote homestead
in Reedsburg Township; and Walter, who is employed at the sheet
metal works at Gary, Indiana.

     DENNIS H. DEDERICH is one of the best known citizens of Bear Creek Township, where for a number of years he has carried unusually heavy responsibilities as a farmer and land owner and has done his. share toward developing this section of a peculiarly rich and prosperous Wisconsin
community. Mr. Dederich was born in Bear Valley of Richmond County, Wisconsin,
October 9, 1862, a son of A. D. and Mary (Schaefer) Dederich. His father came from Germany in 1848, the year that marked the revolution in that country and the exodus of so many of its best citizens to America. He and his wife were married at Roxbury, Wisconsin. A. D. Dederich was a wagon maker by trade, but he finally turned to farming and acquired 550 acres. Taking this land in a rough and wild state, he cleared most of it and was in very prosperous circumstances when he died October 20, 1898. His widow passed away October 20,
1892. Their children were Margaret, Gertrude, Peter, Adolph, Tony, Dennis, Gerhard, Ramie, Francis and Joseph.
Dennis H. Dederich grew up on his father's farm, was educated in the local schools, and at an early age began farming on his own responsibility. He established himself at his present home in Bear Creek Township
December 1, 1903. Here he owns 200' acres and thirty acres were cleared up by his own hands. He has built a good house and barns and is conducting a model dairy of thirty-one cows, while he has about forty-two head of cattle. Mr. Dederich is independent in politics and a member of the Catholic Church. He married Philomena Weiser, daughter of Frank and Genevieve (Langer) Weiser, of Bear Creek. Mr. and Mrs. Dederich have six children, named Genevieve, Philomena, Joseph, Gertrude, Margaret and Hilda, all of whom have been carefully educated in the public schools.
