"GUSTAV F. KOEHLER, who is a German by birth, having been born in Prussia, April 19, 1854, is a son of Gotthilf Koehler, who was also a native of the Fatherland, born in 1817. The father is one of five children, three of whom were August, Charles and Hulda. The parents died in Germany. In that country Gotthilf Koehler first served as a coachman, then acted as a valet for a lord and afterward became a shepherd. At the age of twenty-six he was married to Johanna Sager, and to them were born Wilhelmina, Herman, August, Frank, Gustav F., and George, three of whom, Frank, August and Gustav F., are living. The family decided to make America their future home, so in 1857 crossed the Atlantic, came direct to Wisconsin, and located on a farm near Bloomfield, Waushara county. Two years later they removed to Marathon county, Wis., where the mother died in April, 1861. The father was again married, this time to Henrietta Tews, and they became the parents of three children. His wife died in 1865, and later he wedded Amelia Tews, and to them have been born seven children who are yet living -- Johonas, Amelia, Hulda, Herman, Bertha, Frederick and Walter. They now make their home on a farm near Merrill, Wis. For three years the father served as a soldier in the German army, and since coming to this country has ever been a loyal and worthy citizen."
