Applekamp, Jr., August who is operating the farm mentioned in the sketch of his father, given above, was born at Pelican Lake, Oneida County, Wis., March 26, 1894, and was reared and educated there, remaining at home until Aug. 2, 1918, when he entered the army to take his part in the defense of the nation's honor in the World War. On joining the army he was sent to the field artillery training camp at Louisville, Ky., where his service was cut short by the signing of the armistice, and he was discharged at Louisville Dec. 13, 1918. The following 18 months he spent in the employ of the Langlade Lumber Co., after which he returned home, and since his father's death he has managed the home farm for his mother. He has been very successful in conducting this property, and is well qualified to follow in his father's footsteps.
