From: Compendium of History and Biography of Central and Northern Minnesota Chicago, Geo. A. Ogle & Co., 1904), page 645

Earnst Engisch, a representative farmer of Wilkin county, Minnesota, residing in Akron township, is one of the truly self-made men of his locality. He began when a young boy to make his own way, and his experiences and self training have placed him among the substantial citizens of his county. He has followed farming exclusively and is well versed in the art and has prospered to a marked degree and is now the owner of a valuable property. He has a wide circle of acquaintances and is universally esteemed and respected.

Mr. Engisch was born in Germany in 1855. His father, Andria Engisch, followed farming in Germany. He died many years ago. Our subject was reared in his native land and there received the advantages of a common school education. He began working at farm labor at the age of fifteen years and in 1888 decided to try his fortunes in the new world. He landed at New York city and from thence came direct to Wilkin county, Minnesota. He took a homestead farm and built a claim shanty 12 by 14 feet and began permanent residence on his farm. He had oxen for his first farm work and broke some of his land with oxen at his plow. He worked persistently and steadily improved his farm, and now has one hundred and ten acres of land, all of which he has placed under high cultivation. He has erected good buildings and has built up a home of great comfort, and is one of the substantial agriculturists of Akron township.

Mr. English was married in 1883 to Miss Tena Max, who was born in Germany in 1862. Mr. and Mrs. Engish are the parents of five children, namely: Emma, Rudolph, Clara, Eddie, and Edna. The oldest two children were born in Germany and the other children were born in Wilkin county, Minnesota. Mr. Engisch is an intelligent and enterprising citizen and he keeps pace with the times and lends his influence for good government. He is identified with the Republican party politically.
