 From the Portrait and Biographical Record of Sheboygan County, Wis., 1898:

Charles F. and Henry F. Wandersleben, Page 443


CHARLES F. and HENRY F. WANDERSLEBEN, editors and proprietors of the Nordwestliche Post, of Plymouth, are natives of Sheboygan County, being sons of Henry C. and Catherine (Saal) Wandersleben.  A sketch of the father will be found on another page.

    Charles F. was born in the Chair City, May 16, 1854, and two years later he accompanied his parents to Plymouth, which has since been his home.  He was educated in the public schools, and after leaving school he learned the trade of miller, which he followed for some fourteen years.  During that time he worked in various places, but always made his home at Plymouth.

    On the 8th of September, 1886, occurred the marriage of Mr. Wandersleben and Miss Amelia Westendorf, a daughter of Christian Westendorf.  Unto Mr. and Mrs. Wandersleben two children have been born, a son and a daughter:  Oscar, who died in infancy, and Wilma.

    In the same year of his marriage, Mr. Wandersleben, in company with his brother, Henry F., established the Nordwestliche Post, published at Plymouth.  The paper is a seven-column quarto Democratic weekly, which they have conducted successfully for nearly seven years.

    Henry F. Wandersleben, junior partner of Wandersleben Bros., was born in Plymouth, June1, 1859.  His education was obtained in the public schools of the city of Plymouth, and on the completion of his school work, Mr. Wandersleben learned the printer's trade.  In 1886, in company with his brother, C. F., he founded the Nordwestliche Post, at Plymouth.

    Mr. Wandersleben was united in marriage, October 30, 1887, to Miss Mary Lange, a daughter of Fred Lange.  Mrs. Wandersleben was born in Plymouth, March 20, 1868.  Of this union two children have been born, Hilda and Ada.

    In his political views, Mr. Wandersleben espouses the principles of the Democratic party.  The Nordwestliche Post is also Democratic.  It is a popular German paper, read quite largely throughout Sheboygan County, and one that has steadily increased its circulation from the time of its first issue.  Its publishers are wide-awake and popular journalists.  In connection with the publication of their paper, they are doing a good jobbing business.  Anything in that line is given prompt and careful attention.
