Mr. Ladwig was born on November 18, 1887, in Germany and came to America as a young man. On October 20, 1910, he was married to Emma Krumm in Iowa. After their marriage they moved to the town of Hull and engaged in farming until a short time ago when they retired and moved to the city of Colby, Wis.
