Stock-raising and dairying engage the attention of Louis Arnoldi, who owns and operates a farm of eighty acres located two and a half miles north of Sheboygan Falls. He is a native of Sheboygan Falls township, his birth having occurred on his father's farm, a portion of which he now owns, on the 28th of March, 1888. He is a son of August and Catharine (Kohl) Arnoldi, natives of Germany, who emigrated to the United States in early childhood with their parents. They were married in Sheboygan county, where for many years the father was actively engaged in farming. Their family numbered eight, six of whom are still living, our subject being the youngest. The others are as follows: Helen, who married Fred Wedepohl, of Sheboygan Falls township; August, a farmer of this township, whose wife died in 1908; Minnie, the wife of H. E. Boldt, a lumber dealer of Sheboygan Falls; Della, the wife of Joseph Schneider, of Sheboygan Falls; and Freda, who married Oscar Mathias, a veterinary surgeon of Sheboygan Falls.
The education of Louis Arnoldi was begun in the district schools and completed by a four year course in the high school at Sheboygan Falls. Reared on a farm he was early made familiar with the practical methods of tilling the fields and caring for the crops, and by the time he had attained his majority had a thorough knowledge of the duties of an agriculturist. He subsequently bought eighty acres of the old homestead and in connection with general fanning is engaged in dairying and the raising of graded stock, and is meeting with fair success in his business.
On the 10th of December, 1910, Mr. Arnoldi was married to Miss Elsie Boll, a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Joachim Boll, natives of Germany, and they have become the parents of one child, Marion. Fraternally, Mr. Arnoldi is identified with the Equitable Fraternal Union, and in politics he is a democrat. He is a member of one of the well known pioneer families of this section of the county, and is regarded as a diligent and capable young man of excellent character.
