Biography of Nick Bartholme
Winona County, MN Biographies

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.
