Saltenberger Jr., William who, as above narrated, is now carrying on the operation of the family farm in the town of Washington, Vilas County, was born at Chicago, Ill., Oct 28, 1890, son of William and Albertina (TULIN) SALTENBERGER.

He has carried on the operation of the property since his father's death on July 16, 1923, having been associated with him in the management of the farm for some years previously. He is a director on the school board of his district, and is president of the Eagle River Co-operative Creamery; he is also a stockholder in the Farmers and Merchants State Bank of Eagle River. He was treasurer of the town of Washington for one year, and in every way has proved a worthy follower in the footsteps of his revered father. He is a member of Eagle River Lodge No. 248, F. & A. M., and of the Eastern Star Lodge. He enlisted July 1, 1918, in the Motor Training Corps and was stationed at Chicago in the training school until Aug. 12, 1918, when he went to Camp Taylor, Kentucky, being transferred to the field artillery replacement depot. He was with the Second Regiment, Battery B., F. A. R.D., until the armistice was signed, and was discharged Dec. 20, 1918.
