HENRY C. ZUEHLKE, who is successfully engaged in the hotel business in Bonduel, Shawano county, was born on the 26th of January, 1864, in the town of Theresa, Dodge. Co., Wis., and is a son of William and Fredericka Zuehlke. In that county he was reared to manhood upon the old home farm, and attended the public schools until fourteen years of age, after which his time was entirely taken up by work in the fields or along other lines of business. He was employed for some time as a laborer along the Wisconsin Central railroad, working on the gravel train, and as a section hand. He has led an industrious, useful life, following any honest pursuit that would yield him a living.
In November, 1888, in his native township, Mr. Zuehlke was united in marriage with Miss Carrie Morenzien,  a  native of Germany, and a daughter of Frank Morenzien, a farmer. They began their domestic life upon the old home farm in Dodge county, where they resided until the spring of 1891, when they came to Bonduel. In the old building which stood on the site of his present hotel, Mr. Zuehlke began the hotel business, which he has since conducted with most satisfactory success. In. 1893 he remodeled and improved his hotel in every way, and to-day it would do credit to a town much larger than the one in which it is located. The rooms are neatly and tastefully furnished, every convenience is provided for the guests, and he sets a good table, thus winning favor with the traveling public. 
In his political views Mr. Zuehlke is independent, supporting the man; rather than the party.  Continuing upon the home farm, in compliance with his father's wishes, he afterward received eighty acres of valuable Dodge-county land, whereon, in 1887, were erected good buildings.  His success in the hotel  business has attended him from the start, and he is a genial and pleasant landlord, who always has a cheery greeting for his guests, and endeavors to make them feel at home. In this he is ably assisted by his estimable wife, and both Mr. and Mrs. Zuehlke have the warm regard of many friends.
