Eugene Nurnberg, a son of John, who conducts the operations of the paternal homestead, was born on January 1, 1868, in the state of Wisconsin, and when he was nineteen years old accompanied his parents to this state, where he has since resided. He was married on May 12, 1892, to Miss Rose Smith, a daughter of Adam and Mary (Duerst) Smith, natives of Wisconsin, where she also was born and reared. They are now residing at Troy, South Dakota, and are engaged in farming, in connection with which they carry on a thriving dairy business. While living in Wisconsin the father served as treasurer of his county three terms, being elected to the office on the Republican ticket. He is a prominent member of the Ancient Order of United Workmen. Eleven children were born in the family, two of whom, Adam and Wilhelm, have died. The nine living are: Nicholas, of Green county, Wisconsin; Catherine, the wife of Charles Kundert, of South Dakota; Matthew, also a resident of that state; Mary, the wife of Frederick Legler, of Pocatello, Idaho; Theodore, living at Monroe, Wisconsin; Rose, the wife of Mr. Nurnberg; Annie, the wife of James Budge, of Rio Blanco county; Bertha, the wife of Nicholas Grenfell; and Clara, the wife of Peter Wells, of South Dakota. The parents and most of the children belong to the Methodist church. Mr. Nurnberg the younger is a popular man in his community, and is rising rapidly to prominence in business circles and in public esteem.
