Charles J. Newhouse. Among the well-to-do, thrifty and progressive farmers of Eau Claire county is he whose name heads this brief review. He was born December 17, 1862, and is one of a family of seven children, born to John Newhouse, who was a native of Bilefeld, Germany. The father lived a long and busy life and died at the age of 77 years, and the mother died at the age of 72.


The other children, besides our subject, are: Mrs. Henrietta Shong, Mrs. Mary Richards, Frederic Newhouse, Mrs. Eliza Griswold, Henry Newhouse and William Newhouse, deceased.


Charles J. Newhouse was born on the farm, attended the common schools and assisted in the farm work. He has always followed this occupation and carried on his operations with good success and profit. He now owns 320 acres of fertile land under a good state of cultivation, and well-improved with a fine class of substantial buildings and all the appurtenances and conveniences that go to thoroughly equip an up-to-date model farm.


He is also engaged in stock raising, keeping a fine herd of Holstein cattle and from twenty to thirty head of milch cows, and does an extensive dairy business.


In 1894 he married Miss Cora E. Shong, a daughter of Nicholas Shong, and has two children Earl S. Newhouse and Elizabeth L. Newhouse. In fraternal matters Mr. Newhouse is prominently identified with the Masons. He is a loyal public spirited man and takes active interest in all matters pertaining to the welfare of his town and county. He is a Democrat in politics and has held many local offices.
