  • FRED C. KRUSE is proprietor of the Roseland Stock Farm in Westfield
    Township. His career is a stimulating example of what may be accomplished
    by a man of energy in pursuit of a definite ambition and a determination
    to make a home and achieve something out of the ordinary
    in farming.
    Mr. Kruse is a native of Westfield Township, where he was born March
    18, 1868, a son of Herman and Annie (Luehrsen) Kruse. His parents
    were both natives of Germany. In 1853 they came to New York City,
    'where his father engaged in the wholesale candy manufacture for a
    number of years. He realized considerable capital in that and in the fall
    of 1867 came west and invested in land in Westfield Township of Sauk
    County. For a 160-acre farm he paid sixty-five hundred dollars. That
    was a rather high price for land at that time. The father spent the rest
    of his years here and died in 1883. The mother, who was born August
    9, 1828, lived to the venerable age of eighty-nine. There were four children:
    Henry; Lucy, who died in 1903; Fred C., and Annie.
    Fred C. Kruse grew up on a farm, attended school at Loganville,
    and when only fourteen years of age he started out to make his own way
    in the world. Nothing has ever been given him and by looking out for
    himself he has steadily made progress to his present prosperous and satisfying
    situation. He learned'the milling trade and worked at it two
    years. Then for four years he worked in mills and on farms, and always
    having an eye to the future he saved his wages until he could buy forty
    acres in Westfield Township. That was the nucleus of his present estate
    and he has since added to it until the Roseland Stock Farm comprises
    136 acres. He cleared up a large part of the land with his own sturdy
    right arm, and in getting the land ready for cultivation he sold any
    number of cords of wood at eighty cents per cord. Most of the returns
    from this timber he invested in permanent improvements, and he now has some of the best building equipment found in the township. His
    stock and dairy barn is 40 by 84 feet. For the past eleven years Mr.
    Kruse has been handling thoroughbred Holstein cattle. He has a dairy
    of about twenty-five cows and keeps about forty-five head of livestock.
    Another feature of his industry is the breeding and raising of high class
    poultry. His farm is operated on a business plan and under the firm
    name of Fred C. Kruse & Sons.
    Mr. Kruse has always been interested in movements directed to
    improve the condition of the community, and especially the local schools.
    He has served as school director, but has never been an aspirant for
    offices in the political sense. He is a republican and a member of the
    Lutheran Church. November 29, 1892., he married Miss Anna Hasz. She
    was born in Loganville in 1870, a daughter of Christ and Dora (Westedt)
    Hasz. Her parents were early settlers in Sauk County and her father
    died here at the age of fifty-five and her mother at fifty-one. Five children
    comprise the family of Mr. and Mrs. Kruse: Conrad, who married
    in 1916 Elsie Feldtman, of Loganville; Paul; Edwin; Martha, who died
    at the age of four months; and Clara.
