History of Winneshiek County Vol. II George W. Kruse, who is successfully engaged in general farming and stock-raising in Washington township and who is numbered among the most successful and progressive of the younger agriculturists of this vicinity, is one of Winneshiek county's native sons, born July 10, 1881. His parents, Joseph and Mena (Kramer) Kruse, were also natives of Winneshiek county and the father turned his attention to farming here at an early age, being today in control of one of the finest agricultural properties in Washington township. His wife passed away in February, 1913.To their union were born eleven children: George W., the subject of this review; John, of Jackson township; Catherine, the wife of Nicholas Lusson, of St. Lucas, Iowa; Casper and Louis, both residing in Jackson township; Frances, living in Washington township; Edward, who also makes his home in Washington township; Philip, deceased; Martin, of the same township; Cilla, who has passed away; and Cilla, residing in Washington township.
George W. Kruse was reared under the parental roof and by assisting his father with the work of the homestead gained at an early age a comprehensive and practical knowledge of the essential details of farm operation. He remained at home until he was twenty-five years of age, when his father gave him eighty acres of land on section 26, to which Mr. Kruse of this review afterward added eighty more, turning his attention to its cultivation as an independent agriculturist. Upon the property he has made excellent improvements, erecting fine outbuildings and installing the necessary machinery, and the place is today valuable and desirable in every particular, its condition being a visible evidence of the owner's well directed energy and thrift.

On the 20th of June, 1911, Mr. Kruse was united in marriage to Miss Catherine Greteman, a daughter of Jacob and Susan (Lusson) Greteman. Mr. Kruse is a member of the Roman Catholic church and is connected fraternally with the Knights of Columbus. He is a democrat in his political beliefs and is now serving as township trustee, discharging his duties in a straightforward, capable and practical manner. He is, however, not an active politician, preferring to give his undivided attention to his business affairs, which are capably conducted so that he is justly classed with the progressive farmers of his native county.
