Louis Bruckner, who is an Austrian by birth, was born in the village of Seyfieds, Austria, the son of Matthew Bruckner, also a native of Austria and by trade a shoemaker.

Louis was reared in his home town, receiving a limited education. His parents being poor, he was early thrown upon his own resources and compelled to make his own way. As a youth, he served an apprenticeship as a blacksmith, and when he had reached the age of eighteen, accompanied by a brother, he came to the United States. In 1892, they located at Durand, Wisconsin, where the brother still resides. A short time after arriving in Wisconsin, our subject came to the city of Eau Claire and for three years was variously employed as a day laborer. He finally found a position in a blacksmith shop where he worked at his trade until 1897, when he located at Brackett, in Washington township, and established a blacksmith and wagon shop of his own. He is recognized as a first class workman, and by close application, upright and fair dealing, has succeeded in building up a substantial business. Mr. Bruckner carried on his business by himself until recently, when he took his brother-in-law into partnership, the firm now being known as Bruckner & Guermann. In 1900 Mr. Bruckner married Miss Louise Guermann, and they have two children, Alois and Lloyd Bruckner. The family are all members of the Catholic church.
