August Grams, celery farmer of Eau Claire, WI
I'm looking for stories about August Grams, an immigrant farmer from Prussia who settled in the rural Eau Claire area.He was married to a Mathilde Voigt, they divorced in 1889.She was remarried to a Gustav Paul.August did not remarry-- he was (according to a lawsuit reported on in the Eau Claire Free Press) wooing a wealthy German widow until Mathilde's brother got involved, told the widow what a scoundral August allegedly was, and so on.Usual family dirt that one finds in one's family tree.
Sometime after their divorce, August started a celery farm in Eau Claire on Rust Street.
I don't have much info except for their divorce, August's later suit against Mathilde's brother, and a "lost dog" ad that August placed in the newspaper once.
They had 2 daughters, one who died as a child, the other, Amelia Grams, was my ggrandmother who married a John Brown.
This August is NOT the August of the LaCrosse area or the Milwaukee area.
Thank you for any info you can give.
