NICK BARTHOLME was born in Luxemburg, Germany, in 1824, emigrating to this country in 1849, visiting the states
of Missouri and illinois before finally settling in Minneiska in 1855, when he landed on the island opposite where
the village now stands. Mr. Bartholme suffered every privation incident to first settlement. One year, owing to
malarial affection, was only enabled to earn $21, and that was by cutting twenty one cords of wood, and he had
to support himself and family on that a whole winter. Mr. Bartholme is identified with the village of Minneiska
from its first inception, engaging in every and any occupation that presented itself. He has a snug homestead in
Mount Vernon, adjoining the village, and is now, and has been for many years, employed in the grain elevator of
Brooks Bros. He was married in 1851 to Miss Mary Waggoner, and has a family of seven children.
