     Henry and Louise (GADE) HARMS had eight children: Frederick married Martha HARTIG, and resided in Westfield; William married Elsie GOETSCH, a resident of north Westfield; Mary, wife of Walter GOETSCH, a farmer in the town of Washington; Henry married Amanda PETERS, and residing in the northwest corner of Washington; Dorothea, wife of Albert KOENECKE, a farmer on Babb's Prairie, town of Reedsburg; Ludwig married Emma ROEWER, living in Westfield, and on the HARMS farm; Ernest, married Loraine ZIMMERMAN, of Loganville, and resides in that village, and Lydia, wife of Paul MEYER of Westfield; they occupy the Fred MEYER, his father's homestead. HENRY HARMS. For upwards of half a century the name and career
of Henry Harms have been identified with Sauk County. The first work
he did in the county was, as a harvest man, and the accumulations that have made him one of the most prosperous farmers in Westfield Township have been the result of a slow and toilsome progress.
Mr. Harms was born in Germany, November 14, 1852, a son of Frederick and Margaret (Bodenstab) Harms. The family came to Sauk
County in 1869, settling in Westfield Township, where his father hired
out his services toi others for several years, but about 1873 bought the land where his son Henry now lives. The old homestead consisted of eighty acres and its first improvement was a log house. It was gradually brought under cultivation, and the father lived there for a. number of years, finally going out to Nebraska with his son William. He died in that state in 1917, at the advanced age of ninety-three years and three months. Iis wife also passed away in Nebraska, aged ninety-one, in 1915. Thus they were of hardy and vigorous stock and their lives were prolonged beyond the normal expectation of years, though both of them were hard workers. They were active members of the Lutheran Church. Their five children were Henry, William, Dorris, Fritz and Catherine. Dorris died in 1915, at the age of fifty-six. Henry Harms acquired his early education in Germany. 'He was old enough to do a full day's work when he arrived in Sauk C'ounty in July, 1869, and a few days later he was earning a wage as a harvest hand in Dane County, Wisconsin. For several years he worked; saved and finally invested his earnings in the old homestead of eighty acres. He has since added two other eighties, making his home farm 240 acres. Still another eighty came under his ownership, but he sold that to his son Frederick and later he bought 160' acres which is now owned by his son William. All these tracts of land are in Westfield Township and they represent a
splendid estate for one family. Mr. Harms has invested much of his income in buildings and other improvements, and he has one of the finest barns in the township, 42 by 108 feet in ground dimensions. Many years ago Mr. Harms had some experience in hop growing, formerly one of the chief industries of the county. He runs a fine dairy of Holstein cattle, keeping about forty head of cows besides a large amount of young stock. He has rendered public service on the school board and is an active republican. He and his family worship in the Lutheran faith. In 1880 Mr. Harms married Miss Louisa Gade. She was born at Reedsburg, Wisconsin, in 1858, a daughter of Fred and Dora (Schroeder) Gade. Her parents, both now deceased, were among the pioneer settlers of Reedsburg. Mr. and Mrs. Harms have eight children, the four younger ones still living at home. Frederick, the oldest, married Martha Hartig, who died in 1904. The son William, another practical and progressive young farmer of Westfield Township, married Elsa Goetsch. Henry married Amanda Peters. The daughter Mary is the wife of Wlalter Goetsch. The four younger children at home are Dora, Ludwig, Ernest and Lydia. Henry J. Harms immigrated in 1869.

     WALTER GOETSCH of Washington Township is owner of one of the
largest and best equipped farms of that township, and is a representative
member of that great body of industrious and thinking producers who
earn every cent they get by adding honestly to the wealth of the world.
Mr. Goetsch was born in Washington Township of Sauk County
June 10, 1885. He represents the second generation of a hardy family
that has had much to do with the clearing and development of the lands
of Wisconsin. His parents Otto and Anna (Krueger) Goetsch, who now
live at Reedsburg retired, were both born in Germany and on coming
to America settled in Dodge County in 1861 and five years later moved
to a new tract of land in Washington Township, clearing up and developing
a farm for the use of their sons and daughters. Their children were:
Walter, Esther, Elsie, William, Arthur and Otto. All except Arthur
and Otto are married and established in homes of their own. Esther is the wife of Ernest Soltwedel. Elsie married William Harms of Westfield
Township. William married Alma Wieslow.
Walter Goetsch grew up and received his education in Washington
Township, and on May 8, 1912, married Marie Harms, daughter of Henry
and Louise Harms. Mr. and Mrs. Goetsch have one small daughter,
Margaretta, now four years old.
The Goetsch farm comprises 200 acres, including some of the best
soil in Washington Township. It has a notable group of building improvements,
and most of the buildings were constructed out of the native
stone. One special feature of the farm is a large stone silo, and that
gives tone and character to the quality of farming carried on by Mr.
Goetsch. Mr. Goetsch besides growing the staple crops keeps about sixty
head of cattle and runs a large dairy of about forty-three cows. In
politics he is independent and is a member of the Lutheran Church. Walter August Goetsch obtained US Social Security Card at Wisconsin; last residence Hillpoint, Sauk, Wisconsin. On 12 September 1918 at World War I Draft Registration, Sauk, Wisconsin. On 23 June 1925 attended surprise birthday celebration for Ernest Harms.
