Joseph Hasselhofer is an active, progressive and prosperous young agriculturist living on a one hundred and ten acre farm on section 7 of Wilson township. He was born in Wilson township, July 11, 1884, the son of Charles Hasselhofer, a sketch of whom appears elsewhere in this work. Joseph Hasselhofer was educated in the common schools of Wilson township and also pursued a three years' course in a German school in Sheboygan, being confirmed there in 1897. He assisted his father with the farm work until 1908, when he purchased a forty acre tract on section 7 of Wilson township, upon which he has since made his home. About two years later he added to his holdings by purchasing seventy acres additional from his father and now owns and operates one hundred and ten acres. He is making a specialty of the dairy business, milking on an average about fifteen cows.
Mr. Hasselhofer was married in Sheboygan, November 28, 1908, to Miss Hannah Rammer, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. lgnatz Rammer, the former a well known farmer of Wilson township. Mr. and Mrs. Hasselhofer are the parents of two children: Victor, aged three years; and Dolores, born September 1, 1911.
Mr. Hasselhofer is a democrat but as yet has not actively participated in political affairs. He is one of the progressive and up-to-date young farmers of Sheboygan county and is recognized throughout the community as a young man of enterprise and business ability. He has a wide acquaintance, being greatly respected by all who know him, and is highly esteemed by a large number of friends and neighbors.
