Henry J. Stange, Danube, was born Sept. 6, 1889, in this county, the son of John and Ulricka (Brown) Stange. He attended school at Renville, and on finishing the course there went to work for Mayer Wolpert & Co., storekeepers at Renville, with whom he remained seven years. Leaving there he went to Minneapolis where he entered the National Business College. Coming to Danube in 1912 he purchased an interest in the Danube Mercantile Company of which he became secretary and treasurer. Later he made vice president. This company owns the Danube Meat Market and the Danube Produce Company, Mr. Stange being manager of the latter concern. A Republican in politics, he is now serving his community as recorder. His faith is that of the Evangelical church. Mr. Stange was married Sept. 3, 1913, to Martha H. Summerfield of Renville county, born at Danube, the daughter of August and Otellia Summerfield. One child, LeRoy Edmund, has been the result of this union.
