Arthur Mallmann, who is conducting a saloon at the corner of Indiana and Thirteenth streets, in the building known as Standard Hall, was born in Sheboygan on the 9th of November, 1888. He is a son of Frederick Mallmann, who was born in Germany in 1842 and there passed the first nine years of his life. In 1851, he emigrated to the United States with his parents, who located on a farm in Sheboygan county. There he was reared to manhood and assisted with the cultivation of the farm until 1861, when he enlisted as a private in Company H, Ninth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry, and went to the front, remaining in the service for four years and four months.
When mustered out he returned to Sheboygan county and learned the shoemaker's trade, which he followed for many years and he was also employed in some of the local factories. About ten years prior to his death he withdrew from active work and lived retired. Mr. Mallmann was twice married. To him and his first wife there were born five children, three of whom are still living, as follows: William; Albert, a resident of Sheboygan and a painter by trade, who is married and has four children; and Minnie, the wife of Ernest Muhs, a cabinet maker of this city, by whom she has had four children. Mr. Mallmann chose for his second wife Miss Minnie Laese, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. Laese, both natives of Germany, and to them were born eight children, our subject being the fifth in order of birth. The others are as follows: Annie, who was a school teacher, now the wife of Julius Rosenthal of this city, by whom she has had two children; Emma, who married Earl Diehl, a machinist, living in Davenport, Iowa; Alfred, an employee in a brewery in Sheboygan, who is married and has one child; Edwin, a saloon keeper in Sheboygan, who is married and has two children; and Ella, Leona and Arnold, all of whom are living at home.
Arthur Mallmann attended the public and parochial schools of this city in the acquirement of an education and then learned the upholsterer's trade, which he followed for eight years. He gave this up in 1911, and on April 21 of that year engaged in the saloon business at his present stand.
In this city on the 3rd of October, 1911, Mr. Mallmann was married to Miss Augusta Pease, a daughter of Charles and Hattie Pease. The father is deceased but the mother is still living and makes her home in Sheboygan. One child has been born to Mr. and Mrs. Mallmann, a daughter, whom they have named Hazel. Fraternally the connections of Mr. Mallmann are confined to his membership in the Rangers and he maintains relations with his trade through the medium of his affiliation with the Retail Liquor Dealers Association.
