Charles F Dallman

Born: November 19, 1857
Died: September 21, 1921

CHARLES F. DALLMAN, a pioneer resident of Antigo, was born November 19, 1857, at Winchester, Wisconsin. He attended school at that place and spent his youth and early manhood in the place of his birth. June 1, 1882, he was married to Miss Elizabeth C. Keen, at Winchester. His wife was a daughter of the late D. W. Keen, one time Antigo mayor. Shortly after their marriage they moved to the then village of Antigo, having made their home in Antigo for thirty-nine years, until his death September 21, 1921. Charles F. Dallman was one of the early Antigo citizens and as an architect and contractor he provided plans for and constructed more public buildings than any other Antigo or Langlade County citizen. He erected the public library, the city hall, scores of schools in the rural districts of Langlade County and also many other buildings. These public buildings are a monument to his progressiveness and his thrifty spirit.

Mr. Dallman is survived in life by his widow and three children: Lydia, now Mrs. Dudley Burton, of Fergus Falls, Minnesota; Hulda, now Mrs. Edward Van Deuren, of Antigo; Daniel Dallman, of Chicago, Illinois. One daughter, Ida, died in 1905.

The late Mr. Dallman was one of the active members of the Unity Evangelical church and had much to do with its advancement and progress. He was fraternally affiliated with the Beavers and Fraternal Reserve Association. He lies buried in the old Antigo cemetery.

The life of Charles F. Dallman serves as an excellent example of the rewards that come only after a life of probity, industriousness and integrity. Mr. Dallman was a man of upright character and highly esteemed by all who knew him.
