Krause, Charles J. superintendent woods work for the Turtle Lake Lumber Co. at Winchester, Vilas County, was born at Traverse City, Mich., Sept 1, 1879, son of Carl E. and Ida E. (VANDERHAUF) KRAUSE. The mother who died in 1917, was a native of Michigan; the father, who was born in Germany, came to the United States when 28 years old, first stopping at Kalamazoo, Mich., where he worked in a foundry for many years; later he went to Traverse City. He is now employed as camp watchman by the Turtle Lake Lumber Co. Charles J. KRAUSE was reared and educated at Traverse City, and he has followed work in the lumber woods ever since completing school. For the first two years of his industrial career he worked as a lumberjack, and later he ran small crews, building railroads and sleigh roads. He next did jobbing at Traverse City for the W. L. Brown Lumber Co., the Ovaldish Lumber Co., and the Empire Lumber Co. In the spring of 1905 he came to Winchester, and for the following year he cruised for the Turtle Lake Lumber Co., in the region of Marenisco, Mich., after which he ran camps for this company for 10 years. In 1916 he entered upon the duties of his present responsible position as general superintendent of woods work, with direct charge over all wood operations of the Turtle Lake Lumber Co., including the building of railroads and sleigh roads, cruising, and surveying. At present he is operating two monthly camps and two jobbing camps, and has two steam jammers and two locomotives under his charge. He buys and sells all machinery and horses for the company, and has 300 men under him. Executive ability of a high type is called for in this position, and the excellent record Mr. KRAUSE has established merits the fullest credit. He is fraternally affiliated with the Masons and Modern Woodmen of America, belongs to the Blue Lodge and Chapter of the former organization at Hurley and to the Winchester Lodge of the Woodmen. He was married April 14, 1899, at Platt, Mich., to Daisy ARNOLD, and Mr. and Mrs. KRAUSE have had three children, to whom, however, the first born Gladys is now deceased. The others are Ernest, who is living at home, and Hazel, who is Mrs. Julius FRYWOLD of Winchester, Wis.
