Augusta C. Krause was born Nov. 12, 1880, daughter of August and Anna (Krause) Krause, the parents being of German birth. Augusta's father is still living in Vernon County, Wis., but her mother died Feb. 18, 1916.
Augusta married on April 5, 1904 to Andrew Carl Baxter. She moved to Big Beaver, Dunn County, while Mr. Baxter proceeded with building a store and residence in Section 3, town of Hay River. That spring he completed his house and store and they began business, carrying a small stock of general merchandise. Later he bought another half acre of land, which adjoined his place on the north, and on it built a small feed mill and blacksmith's shop, both of which he owns and operates today. His mercantile business has grown so that he has had to enlarge his store building and he now carries a large and varied stock of general merchandise. He has also enlarged his house and bought 80 acres adjoining his other property, which he operates as a farm. The locality has come to be known as Baxter and as it looks at present it seems like the nucleus of a village.
They have been the parents of six children:
1. George A., born May 29, 1905;
2. Anna H., July 29, 1907;
3. Carl A., June 26, 1909;
4. William L., Aug. 2, 1911;
5. Lillian A., Oct. 27, 1918, and
6. a child who died in infancy.
Son, George A. is now his father's assistant in the latter's various enterprises. the other surviving children are attending school in Menomonie, where their mother maintains a home for them.
