Henry Sixel

Henry Sixel resides in Mosel township, which was also the place of his birth, his natal day being April 2, 1885. He is a young man of enterprise and determination, whose labors are bringing to him good success. His father, George Sixel, was a native of Germany and on coming to America made his way into the interior of the country, settling in Sheboygan county, Wisconsin. He became closely associated with agricultural interests and his labors produced good results.

Henry Sixel was reared on the old homestead farm with the usual experiences that fall to the lot of the boy whose parents are in moderate circumstances. He worked in the fields from the time of early spring planting until crops were harvested in the late autumn, and through the remainder of the year attended the district schools, thus laying the foundation for the education to which he has since added by reading and experience. Farm life proved congenial to him and after putting aside his text-books he devoted all of his attention to the development of the home place. In 1908 he began farming on his own account on the old homestead and he is today cultivating one hundred and ninety acres of rich and productive land, devoted to general farming. He has studied the best methods of putting in his crops and caring for the harvests, and each year he adds to his . income through his diligence and careful management.

In April, 1908, Mr. Sixel was united in marriage to Miss Adelia Langenhahn, a daughter of Fred Langenhahn, of the town of Meeme, in Manitowoc county, Wisconsin, where he follows the occupation of farming. Mr. and Mrs. Sixel have one child, Arno. In politics he is independent, voting for men and measures rather than for party, and his religious faith is indicated by his membership in the Evangelical church of Mosel township. His life has been quietly spent, yet his labors have been fraught with good results and he has made for himself a creditable place among the enterprising young farmers of the county.
