Arnold Muhlheim

ARNOLD MUHLHEIM established the pioneer jewelry business in Ellis County, was active in the affairs of the Town of Ellis for thirty years, and is now enjoying a well earned retirement, living in material comfort and surrounded with every evidence of the esteem of his community.

Mr. Muhlheim came by his trade as a watchmaker and jeweler naturally. He is a native of Switzerland, having been born near Berne October 20, 1856.

In 1889, at Brookville, Kansas, Mr. Muhlheim married Miss Clara Fritz, a native of Pennsylvania. They have three sons: Arnold, who is manager of the jewelry business at Ellis; Berne, who was on the firing line in France with the United States army when the war closed; and Ralph, still at home with his parents.
