      History of Barron County. Page 966. Charles F. Museus, veteran of the Civil War, retired business man of Chetek, was born in Christiania, Norway, March 25, 1847, son of H.B. and Katherina (Strum) Museus, who brought their family to the United States in 1851, came into Wisconsin by way of Milwaukee, and settled about four miles from Oconomowoc, Jefferson County, Wis., where the father had a farm and also worked at his trade as a carpenter. In 1880 they came to Barron County, and settled on a farm of 40 acres in Turtle Lake Township, a son, Nels C., securing a similar tract adjoining. The father erected a pleasant home but did not cultivate the land, devoting his time to carpenter work in the neighborhood. The mother died at the age of seventy-five. Later the father took up his home with his granddaughter, Mrs. Christ Wold, near Haywood, Wis., where he died at the age of eighty-eight. Of the nine children in the family six died young, one being drowned. Halvor F. and Nels grew to adult years, but both are now deceased. Charles F. had but little chance for an education, and started out for himself at an early age. Three members of the family enlisted in the Civil War. The father and Halvor F. fought at Island No. 10 on the Mississippi. Charles F. was in the 28th Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. He served along the Tombigbee River, as well as at the attack on Fort Blakely and the Spanish Forts. Later he was sent under Sheridan to the Mexican border to protect Texas from becoming involved in the troubles incident to the overthrow of Emperor Maximillian I, and the withdrawal of the French.
