Carl Frederick Steinberg was born at Brandenburg, Germany, April 18, 1851, and died at Neillsville hospital at 4:30 p.m., Dec. 10, after a long illness.

He grew to manhood in his native land, learning the trade of stone mason. On November 27, 1876, he was married to Johanna Golz. Eight years later they came to America and settled on wild land in the town of Weston.
