Paul Mohr

Mr. Mohr was born in Sheboygan Falls, July 25, 1884, and is the son of Mr. and Mrs. William Mohr, both of whom were natives of Germany. They were married in their native land and emigrated to the United States in 1880, settling first in Sheboygan, Wisconsin, where they continued to reside for a period of three years. Later they removed to a farm in Sheboygan Falls township and the father was there engaged in agricultural pursuits until 1907, after which the family removed to Johnsonville, where Mr. Mohr purchased five acres of ground upon which he established his home and retired from active business life.

To Mr. and Mrs. Mohr were born four children, all of whom survive, namely: William, who is married and is engaged as a carpenter in Plymouth; Augusta, who is the wife of Ferdinand Mais; Otto, who is married and resides in Merrill, Lincoln county, Wisconsin; and Paul, the subject of this sketch.

Paul Mohr was reared in his father's home and received his early education in the public schools. He remained under the parental roof during the early years of his life and later purchased forty acres of land two miles north of Sheboygan Falls. He afterward disposed of thirty-five acres of that property, reserving for himself the ground on which the buildings stand and where he is at present engaged in the saloon business, having in connection therewith a dance hall.

He is also the owner of a blacksmith shop which he operates in connection with his other business interests. Mr. Mohr is very successful in the conduct of his business and is a man well known throughout the county and city of Sheboygan.
