  • FRED W. LUHRSEN. The blacksmith who has wandered so long
    through song and story, the man of hard muscles, strong physique, genial
    manner, ready wit and innumerable companionable qualities, seems to
    have a living counterpart in Fred W. Luhrsen, owner and proprietor
    of a blacksmithing establishment at Reedsburg. Increasing prosperity
    and popularity have hovered around this shop ever since the owner sent
    out the first merry clang of his anvil here in 1892, although he had been
    in business here eight years before that time. Mr. Luhrsen was born near Madison in Dane County, Wisconsin, February 21, 1857, and is a son
    of Christopher and Christina (Ensh) Luhrsen.
    Christopher Luhrsen was born in Germany, in 1822, and was there
    married to his first wife, with whom he came to the United States about
    1851. There Mrs. Luhrsen died, and in the metropolis Mr. Luhrsen was
    married a second time, to Christina Ensh, who had been born in 1826,
    also in Germany. In 1855 they came to Wisconsin and settled in Dane
    County, near the City of Madison, residing there until 1857, when they
    removed to Westfield Township, Mr. Luhrsen there purchasing a farm.
    After some years passed in agricultural pursuits in Sauk County he
    removed his family to Loganville, where for a period he was engaged in
    merchandising, but eventually returned to agricultural pursuits, buying
    a farm one mile east of the village mentioned, where he passed the remainder
    of his life and died in 1906, at the age of eighty-four years. Mrs.
    Luhrsen died September 22, 1917, having reached the remarkable age of
    ninety-one years. They had a family of eight children: Elizabeth,
    Nicholas, Fred W., Anna, Emma, August, William and Edward, of
    whom all are living except William.
    Fred W. Luhrsen was reared on the home farm and received his
    education in the public schools of Westfield Township and the parochial
    schools of the German Lutheran Church, of which. faith his parents were
    devout members. When he was nineteen years of age he learned the
    blacksmith trade. In 1876 he came to Reedsburg, and in 1884 he established
    a business: of his own, since that time having built up a prosperous
    business. During forty-one years Mr. Luhrsen has not lost in time over
    two months, a remarkable record and one which speaks well for his great
    industry and energy. The present blacksmith shop of Mr. Luhrsen is one
    of the busiest and best managed establishments of its kind in Sauk
    County. Its forge and anvil have been in almost constant operation
    since 1892, when the present shop was built, and the trade which rewards
    the owner's enterprise and skill in continuous and appreciative, being
    recruited both from the city and county. He has the most modern and
    practical appliances of his trade, and his work is invariably well done
    and satisfactory. In addition to his shop he has a comfortable and
    attractive residence, located at No. 628 Main Street. Politically Mr.
    Luhrsen is a prohibitionist. He has never cared for public office, although
    always a good citizen and a supporter of public-spirited movements. He
    and Mrs. Luhrsen are faithful members and supporters of the Church
    of God.
    Mr. Luhrsen was married in 1880 to Miss Sarah Coiling, who was born
    at McKeesport, Pennsylvania, December 14, 1850, a daughter of Daniel
    and Sophia (Gerss) Colling. Mr. and Mrs. Colling came to Westfield
    Township, Sauk County, in 1855, and here spent the rest of their lives
    on a farm, the former dying iri 1881, at the age of seventy-four years,
    and the latter in 1891, when eighty-one years of age. Mr. and Mrs.
    Luhrsen have five children: Agnes, who is the wife of Walter Thomas,
    living near the City of Milwaukee, and has had four children, Beatrice,
    who died in infancy, Glenn Douglas and Marshall; Walter, of Red Lodge,
    Montana, who is. married and has two children, Richard and- Gertrude;
    Josie, who is the wife of P. J. Smart, of Carthage, Missouri, and has had four sons, Howard F., Stanley (1), deceased, Stanley (2) and Russell;
    Vernie, a traveling salesman for an automobile company, with headquarters
    at Missoula, Montana, who is married and has one son, Robert;
    and Lillie, who is the wife of Victor Seagraves, of Woonsocket, Rhode
    Island, and has two children, Richard and Gerald. Mrs. Luhrsen has
    one half-sister: Sophia, of Avada, Colorado; and two sisters: Sarah;
    and Nancy, the wife of Charles Schulte, now living on the Colling
    homestead.
    Mr. Luhrsen has acquired a competence through his labor, and, what
    is better, has won the regard of hosts of friends and the confidence of
    theentire community. His patrons come from many miles in the country,
    and for many of them he has been doing work for more than a score of
    years. His life is a lesson of industry, frugality, honesty and good humor.
