Ike Lubinski, a leading and successful Polish farmer, of Eau Claire county, residing in the town of Fairchild, was born in West Prais, German Poland, near Nakel, August 10, 1855; the son of Frank and Anna Lubinski. In 1872 he came to the United States and located at Humbird, Jackson county, Wis., where he remained one year and then removed to Alma Center, where for seven years he was employed as a farm hand. In 1881 he came to Fairchild, Eau Claire county, and rented a farm of 80 acres, which he carried on for one year, and then rented another farm of 120 acres. In 1884 he purchased a farm of 120 acres, where he now resides, to which he subsequently added by purchase, 200 acres adjoining, making in all 320 acres of the finest farming land in Eau Claire county, all of which he has under a high state of cultivation, and all accomplished by his own industry, thrift and perseverance. 

Mr. Lubinski has been married twice. His first marriage was to Mary Muzen in 1881, who died in May, 1895, by whom he had six children as follows: Tillie, Josephine, Plowdy, Raymond, Vera and Ike W. His second marriage was February 11, 1896, to Miss Pauline Rosallia Thomas, by whom he has four children: Paul, Christine, Joseph and Rosallia. 

Mr. Lubinski is one of the thrifty and progressive farmers of the county and employs modern and up-to-date methods in his farming operations, and takes pride in making his one of the model country homes. He takes a commendable interest in all public matters and has served four years as a member of the town board of Fairchild, and is prominently identified with the Polish Roman Catholic Church. Mrs. Lubinski is a daughter of Mr. Frank and Frances Thomas, natives of Germany, who were prominent pioneers of Arcadia, Trempealeau county, Wisconsin, where they settled on a farm of 160 acres, which they cleared and improved and on which they still reside.
