Biographical sketch of FRED MUNDT from the book entitled, "Biographical Memoirs of Saint Clair County, Michigan," published in 1903 by B. F. Bowen Publishers in Logansport, Indiana.
============================================ This bio spans two (2) pages: 369-370
A native of Germany, and one of the prosperous young farmers of Mussey township, St. Clair county, Michigan, Fred Mundt was born December 3, 1864, and is a son of Charles and Louisa (Myres) Mundt, who came to the United States in 1865 and settled a homestead of forty acres of wild swamp land east of the village of Capac.The forests at that time were filled with game and wild animals of a baser nature.After about a year’s residence on this forty-acre tract, Mr. Mundt abandoned his homestead and bought eighty acres two and a half miles north of Capac, also deep in the wilderness, to which he later added twenty acres, and, as father and son were both good axmen, the entire tract soon succumbed to their sturdy strokes.There was but a rough corduroy road through the woods to the little log shanty which the father and son erected on their forest farm, and the nearest mill was at Romeo, some considerable distance south of Capac, in Macomb county.The religious services of the pioneers were held in a little log school-house, and were conducted alternately by the various denominations of the neighborhood, the Mundt family affiliating with the Evangelical church, of which they were active and devoted members, and to the support of which they were liberal and eager contributors.The marriage of Charles and Louisa Mundt was graced with five children, born in the following order:Louisa, Mary, Theresa, Augusta and Fred, all of whom received good common school educations.Of this family Louisa is married to George Frantz, a well-to-do farmer in Mussey township, and has borne her husband two children; Mary is the wife of William Winters, also a prosperous farmer in Mussey township, but has no family; Augusta is married to Lincoln Hosner, a successful farmer near Romeo, Michigan, and has been blessed with one little daughter.Theresa remains at home with her parents.All have good and comfortable homes, are active in church work, and hold highly respected positions in the communities in which they have their abiding places.
Fred Mundt now has charge of the home farm, which he so ably assisted his father in developing, and of which one hundred acres are under cultivation and improved with a modern dwelling, substantial and commodious farm buildings, and every convenience adapted to the calling of the up-to-date agriculturist.
