Nicholas R. Klug, who is prosperously engaged in farming and stock raising in Caledonia township, was born in
Houston county, on a farm five miles west of Caledonia village, Jan. 24, 1877, son of Richard
and Mary (Klos) Klug. His parents later moved to a farm three and a half miles west of the village, and on these
two farms he was reared to manhood, being occupied with agricultural work until reaching the age of sixteen or
seventeen. He then worked for two years at the carpenter's trade. Since then he has been engaged chiefly in agriculture
in its various branches of crop raising, dairying and Stock raising. In 1904 he came to his present farm, which
then contained forty acres, but which he has increased to an area of 120 acres. Here he is raising graded and registered
Holstein cattle and other good stock. He has built a new barn and outbuildings, using for a residence the house
which stood on the place when he took possession of it. He was one of the founders of the local creamery, serving
on the building committee, and has since been a shareholder in it. He also holds shares in the stock and grain
company. A member of the Catholic church, he served on the building committee of the school.
