August Carl Quade1

M, b. 10 August 1852, d. 24 July 1915
  • Marriage Fact*: Has date of 4/3/1882.1
  • Note: No biographical history of Cottonwood county would be complete without reference to the life and services to the community at large of the late August Quade, a pioneer of that county and for many years one of the most substantial and influential farmers of Storden township and one of the largest landowners in the county. August Quade was a native of Germany, born on August 10, 1852, son of Christian and Julia (Biegel) Quade, natives of that country, whose last days were spent in the home of their son in Cottonwood county, they having come to Minnesota in their old age. Christian Quade and wife were members of the German Lutheran church and their children were reared in that faith. There were three of these children, of whom August was the first-born, the others being Christian and Frederick. The elder, Christian, died; his widow is still living at Jeffers, aged eighty-two years.
    August Quade received his schooling in his native land and at the age of sixteen years, in 1868, came to the United States, locating in Green Lake county, Wisconsin, where he remained about two years, at the end of which time he started for the Pacific coast and was for some years engaged in prospecting in the West, particularly in Washington and Oregon. In 1877 he came to Minnesota and located in Cottonwood county, where he spent the rest of his life. Upon determining to locate here, Mr. Quade homesteaded a tract of eighty acres in Stordent township and pre-empted an adjoining "eighty". He diligently set about improving and developing the same and upon his marriage five or six years later established his home there and continued living there the rest of his life. Mr. Quade was a man of much energy, of large public spirit and of indefatigable industry and prospered from the start of his agricultural operations. He built up a fine place on his homestead tract and gradually added to his land holdings until he became the owner of eight hundred acres of fine land and was regarded as one of the most substantial citizens of Cotonwood [sic] county. In addition to his extensive general farming, he also engaged extensively in stock raising and did very well.
    Mr. Quade was a Democrat and from the beginning of his residence took an active part in local political affairs, having been looked upon as one of the leaders of his party in the central and western parts of the county. For many years he served as treasurer of Storden township; for years was a member of the school board; in which capacity he did much to advance the cause of education in his distric; while as road supervisor he performed a valuable service to the community in the way of highway improvement. He was equally active in church work and for years was one of the trustees of the German Lutheran Church of which he and his wife were devoted members and in the faith of which their children were reared.
    On April 3, 1883, August Quade was united in marriage to Pauline Conrad, who also was born in Germany, daughter of Johann M. and Anna J. (Wendland) Conrad, pioneers of this part of Minnesota, and to that union seventeen children were born, twelve of whom are living, as follow: Ida T., who married H. F. Conrad; Carl F., who married Ella Halter, and William A.F., Amelia A., Herman R., Marie P.M., Gustav M., Walter I., Ella L., John S., Amanda M. and Clara P. August Quade died at his home in Storden township on July 24, 1915, leaving a good memory, which long will be cherished in that community. His widow is still living there and continues to take an active interest in the general management of the large farm. She is ernest in good works, for years one of the leaders in the church in that neighborhood, and takes a warm interest in all proper movements designed to advance the common welfare hereabout.2
  • Note*: Was born in Germany in 1852, and came to America in 1868, and settled in Wisconsin. In 1877 he came to Cottonwood County and homestead the SW 1/4 of Section 14 in Storden township.
    Three friends came here about the same time, one of them being Lamon Grimm, who brought along some alfalfa seed. He gave generous samples to August Quade and Henry Rasche who planted and harvested it. The Government bought the seed of this "Grimm" alfalfa for the unheard of price of $1.00 a pound and sent it to various places over the while United States. Mr. Quade at one time owned 800 acres of land....
    August Quade died July 24, 1915. In 1929 Mrs. Quade sold the farm to her son, John, who with his wife and daughter lived here for a number of years, then sold it to Ray Johnson.3

    In the death of Mr. Quade another name is stricken from the ever lessening roll of Cottonwood County's pioneers, and a solitary woman in the sunset of life and a lonely home are left to attest how sadly he will be missed by wife and family. Altho Mr. Quade was one of those quiet unassuming men traveling along life's highways without much stir, yet he was of German descent and kept building as the years rolled by. He has not only left proof of a substanial growth as he traveled life's pathway, but has given the world a large family of sturdy sons and daughters, who by following the teaching of their parentage are enriching the community in which they reside by their existence.
    Mr. Quade was a man who was always willing to lend a kind hand to those who were in less fortunate circumstances than himself, always ready to assist a neighbor and friend, this was attested to by the host of people who attended the funeral to pay their last respects to a friend who has passed from their midst, who is gone but not forgotten.
    The funeral services were held from the home at one o'clock Tuesday afternoon and 3:30 from the Germantown Lutheran church of which the deceased was a member, Rev. Michaealis conducted the services, taking his text from Romans, 6,22-23.
