Frederick William Reineking is a well-known educator of Sheboygan County, having been engaged in the profession of
teaching for eighteen years. He was born on the farm where he now lives, September 4, 1852, being a son of Frederick
and Mary Reineking. In early life his time was passed between farm labor and attendance at the district school. For
two years thereafter he pursued a higher course of instruction in the Mission House of his native town, and during
the school year of 1871 and 1872 was a student at the Wisconsin State University. Returning to the farm, he was
engaged in agriculture during the summer season, while in the winter time he was employed as a teacher. For thirteen
terms of eight months each, he was employed to teach the school in his home district, a record perhaps not excelled
anywhere in the State. In the same position he might still have continued, but, his farming interest demanding his
entire attention, he gave up teaching.
Mr. Reineking and Miss Mary, daughter of C. F. Arpke, were married in the town of Herman October 20, 1876, and unto
them have been born seven children, whose names are given in order of birth: Lorenz F., Calvin F., Richard F., Delia
M., Roland F., Esther M. and Elsa M. For sketch of Mrs. Reineking's father, see another page of this volume.
In his political faith, Mr. Reineking is a Republican, though he has no official aspirations. He has served his town
as Justice of the Peace for some eight years. Himself and wife are active and valued members of the German Reformed
Church. Since 1890 Mr. Reineking has devoted himself to farming. He is a young man of exceptional business
qualifications, and of intellectual attainments - in every sense a representative man.
