Source: "History of Manitowoc County Wisconsin", by Dr. L. Falge, 1911-1912, v.2, p.73-74.

Otto H. Senglaub, a well known resident of Manitowoc, was born in Sheboygan county, Wisconsin, December 19, 1874, and is a son of Louis C. and Victoria (Stoll) Senglaub. Mrs. Senglaub was a daughter of Frederick Stoll, who brought the family to Manitowoc county during the early '50s, locating at Rockville, Wisconsin, where he carried on farming and also had the first saw and grist mills in that part of the county. Ludwig Senglaub, the paternal grandfather of Otto H., brought his family to Sheboygan county at an early day, from Germany, and there spent the remainder of his life. Louis C. Senglaub, after his marriage, moved to Louis Corners, Manitowoc county, where he had a store and hotel, and later removed to a farm near Kiel, where he was engaged in farming for two years, and in 1889 came to Manitowoc. He was prominent in public affairs, serving from 1889 to 1895 as county clerk, He and his wife were the parents of six children, namely: Otto H.; Victor, who is deceased; Agnes and Helena, who reside with their parents; Rudolph, who is engaged in construction work; and Viola, who is living at home.

Otto H. Senglaub had the advantages of a common-school education. Engaging in business he became interested in the brewing industry of Manitowoc county and was elected to the office of secretary of the Schreihart Brewing Company, one of the most important in these parts, which annually produces as much as thirty thousand barrels.

On March 15, 1899, Mr. Senglaub was united in marriage with Miss Margaret Meyer, of Manitowoc, a daughter of Henry and Trena (Goss) Meyer, pioneer settlers of Manitowoc county. Mr. and Mrs. Senglaub were the parents of five children, the first of whom died in infancy, while those surviving are Raymond, Arthur, Milton and Lyell. Mr. Senglaub's connections with fraternal and social organizations consist of his membership with Manitowoc Lodge, No. 194, Independent Order of Odd Fellows, of which he now serves as secretary; the local aerie of the Fraternal Order of Eagles; and the Musicians' Union, the Marine Band and the Concordia Singing Society.
