MICHAEL MAJERUS name should rank among the first of the old settlers who made a home in the beautiful Whitewater
valley. In 1852 he lauded at the mouth of the Whitewater on the Mississippi and followed the windings of the stream
until he found a spot he thought would suit. There he built himself a shanty, and there he has since remained.
The shanty gave place to a commodious log house, which has, in its turn, given place to one of the handsomest brick
residences to be found in the valley. Mr. Majerus is a man of marked strength of purpose, and he has "hoed
his own row" through life, and can look back at it.s struggles and triumphs with well-earned satisfaction.
Mr. Majerus is a German, born in 1828, came to America in 1851, was married in Germany, and has a family of seven
children. He is a Lutheran and a republican.
