     AUGUST THIES. Some of the finest and best equipped dairy and general farms in Sauk County are found in the Loganville community, and one of these is in Westfield Township, its proprietor being August Thies. Mr. Thies represents a family that has been identified with Sauk County sinee early times, and his own part has identified him with the clearing and developing of the land as well as the substantial and well-ordered industry of modern times. Mr. Thies was born in Westfield Township, on the farm now owned by his brother Herman, on April 25, 1873. He is a son of Charles and Elizabeth (Meyer) Thies, both of whom were natives of Germany. The
paternal grandparents also came to Sauk County after the arrival of some of their children and spent their last days here. The maternal grandparents, George and Elizabeth Meyer, found a home in Sauk County for their last years. George Meyer was a German soldier under the great Napoleon and had marched with the French troops into Russia and witnessed the burning of the Russian City of Moscow. Charles Thies came to America in 1850, when ten years of age, with his two brothers, who located in Dane County, Wisconsin. One of these brothers was Frederick, who was then twenty-one years of age and who passed away recently in April, 1917, at the age of eighty-seven. The other brother was Henry, who spent his life at Cottage Grove in Dane County. When Charles Thies was seventeen years of age he came to Westfield Township with his brother-in-law, Frederick Telker, and bought what is known today as the John Schultz place. He cleared up most of the land contained in that
farm and later sold it. Charles Thies then bought a tract of land which
he subsequently sold to Mr. Luthermann, the present proprietor. His
next purchase was the Briggs farm of 120 acres, and here again he applied himself to the clearing and developing of a farm from practically new land. This constituted the old homestead where August was born and where the son Herman now lives. Charles Thies owned and developed a number of good lands in Sauk County. He bought the 160 acres where his son William resides, and later bought 106 acres nearby, and still later the Lew Tarst farm of 152 acres at Reedsburg. This is the farm now owned and occupied by his son Henry. Charles Thies finally moved to Loganville, where he bought the home of D. B. Hulbert, a good house with seventeen acres of ground. In that home he spent his last years in comfort
and plenty and passed away in 1913, at the age of seventy-three. His
widow still lives among her children and is now eighty-three years of
age. The parents were both active in the Lutheran Church and the father was a democrat. Their children were: Henry, who died in early childhood; William; Charles, of Madison, Wisconsin; Annie, who died in 1893; August; Herman; and Henry. August Thies grew up on his father's farm and attended both the parochial and public schools. In March, 1894, at the age of twenty-one, he married Miss Dora Meyer. She was born on the farm where she and .her husband now reside on July 24, 1873. Her parents, August and Dora (Fredericks) Meyer, were early settlers in Westfield Township and cleared up 100 acres of the farm now owned by August Thies. Mrs. Thies' father died there and her mother is still living.
In the year that he married Mr. Thies bought the Meyer place, and has since developed it into a modern stock and dairy farm. He keeps
from forty-five to fifty head of cattle; including some thoroughbred Holstein cows, and contributes materially to the production of Sauk County as a dairy county. Mr. Thies has all the equipment necessary for stock raising and dairying, including a large bark which in its main dimensions is 34 by 86 feet, with an addition 14 by 46 feet.
In 1917 Mr. Thies was honored by his fellow citizens with election to
the office of side supervisor. He is a republican and a member of the
Lutheran Church. He and his wife have a fine family of nine children,
all of them still living. Their names in order of birth are Martin, Lena,
William, Frederick, Freda, Lydia, August, Dora and Paul.
