These are just some random documents from my last trip to Wausau. I don’t know if or how they fit in anywhere, but thought I’d throw it on the blog so I wouldn’t forget it.

I know there are a lot of Kruegers in Wausau, but the reason I noted this one is that Harvey Krueger had talked earlier that day about “going out to Borchardt’s” to visit Krueger relatives out there when he was a boy. He watched the cattle for them during the summer. No idea how August and Emily Borchard fit in to our family, or even if they do. Just noting what Harvey said. I got the impression from the discussion that these were Kruegers from the Carl Bertold Krueger side of the family.
