    Notes 
    •        By 1905, the Robert Lange family had moved from South Dakota to Wisconsin. It is my conjecture [DLL] that after marriage in Wisconsin, Emilie and Robert went to South Dakota to establish a homestead. When they had met homestead criteria, they probably sold the farm, moved back to Wisconsin, and bought a farm in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. This conjecture will need proof.

  • Notes 
    •        Art Lange was the brother of Max Lange and the Uncle of Dale Lange. According to an undated letter from Loris Schlegelmilch (Daughter of Art and Alma), Art was born in Madison, SD when Robert and Emilie lived in South Dakota. He was a dairy farmer in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, south of Fairchild, Wisconsin from 1916 to 1967 when a home was purchased in Fairchild, Wisconsin. He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Fairchild.
             Like most of the Lange brothers, sons of Robert and Emilie Lange, Art was a farmer, dairy farmer. He was a very gentle soul, according to Dale, who never got angry, who was always kind, respectful, generous, and helpful. Dale spent some summers on Art's farm outside of Fairchild. Dale loved to go with Art wherever he went whether out in the field at threshing time, or to Humbird to sell milk, or in the barn to milk the cows. And, Dale's first visit was when he was seven years old, 1941. Mildred sent him on the bus to Eau Claire with a change of buses in Minneapolis. There were several visits thereafter.
             According to Judith Anne Schlegelmilch (Macke) [JAS 01], Art logged in the winter for extra money and obtained some of the logs for the farm house from that work. He met Alma Arndt in church. "Grandpa went to church and sat in the front of the church to watch Alma. Alma was the organist for the (St. Paul's) Lutheran church in Fairchild.
             In the 1900 U.S. Federal Census, Art or Archie is found in Wentworth Township, Lake County, South Dakota, with his mother and father and five siblings: Ella, Otto, Paul, Walter, and Max. He is a seven year old, single, white male, who was born in South Dakota. His birthday is in December and the year was 1892. [RL 07.]
             In the 1905 Wisconsin State Census, Arthur Lange is a 12 year old, white, single male. He was born in South Dakota of parents who were both born in Germany. He lives with his parents, Emilie and Robert, and one sister, Ella, and five brothers (Otto, Paul, Walter, Max, and Armin [Armie]). They all live in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. [RL 12.]
             In the 1910 U. S. Federal Census, Arthur H. Lange is an 18 year old, white, single male. He was born in South Dakota of parents who were both born in Germany. He speaks, reads, and writes English. He is employed (most likely by his father) as a laborer on the home farm. He is still in school. He lives with his parents, Robert and Emelie, and six siblings (Ella, Otto, Paul, Walter, Max, Armie) in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. [RL 09.]
             The WWI Draft Registration Card for Arthur Herman Lange contains little new, but it does indicate the following:

             Arthur H. Lange is found in the 1920 U.S. Federal Census. He is the head of household, 26, white, male, and married to Alma Arndt. He has one daughter, Loretta E. Lange. He can read, write, and speak English, although both of his parents were born in West Prussia and spoke German. He is a farmer, working in general farming, working on his own account. He lives with his wife, Alma, and a daughter, Loretta, in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. [AHL 05.]
             In the 1930 U. S. Federal Census, Art Lange is a 37 year old, white, married male. He is married to Alma Arndt. He married when he was 23 years old. He was born in South Dakota of parents that were both born in Germany. He is not in school, but he reads, writes, and speaks English. He is a farmer working in the area of general farming. He was working at the time of the census. He owns his farm. He also owns a radio. Art has not been a veteran of any U. S. military service. He lives with his wife, Alma, and two daughters, Loris and Phyllis, in Cleveland Township, Jackson County, Wisconsin. [AHL 08.]
             His daughter, Loris, provided his birth year as 1893. Both the WWI Draft Registration Card and his retroactively filed birth date in South Dakota indicate that the year is 1892. Thus, I have changed the birth date for December 21, 1893 to December 21 1892. [AHL 06.]
             The obituary for Arthur Lange, published in the Eau Claire Leader-Telegram, November 06, 1971, reads:
