Bror Anton Rosenquist, the popular and well known postmaster of Osage City, was born in Sweden, Oct. 10, 1859, the son of Carl J. and Charlotte (Fogelberg) Rosenquist, both of whom were natives of Sweden. The father was a shoemaker and taught his son the same trade. In 1879 Bror Rosenquist immigrated to America and located in Osage City. The next year his father came to Osage City and worked at his trade until his death, in 1882. For some time after coming to Kansas Mr. Rosenquist worked at the shoemaking trade, then became a coal miner, but gave that up to learn the mercantile business. He clerked in a store several years and then bought a store of his own. In November, 1901, he was made postmaster of Osage City, which is a second-class postoffice, and sold his interest in the store he had run for four years. At the present time Mr. Rosenquist is serving his third term as postmaster. He has always taken an interest in public affairs, both of city and state, and for six years represented his ward in the city council. Mr. Rosenquist is a member of the Masonic order, of the Knights of Pythias, and belongs to the Swedish Baptist church.

June 24, 1881, he married Carrie Scofield, whose parents were natives of Sweden, and came to America at an early day. Seven children have been born to this union—five girls and two boys. Mr. Rosenquist believes in higher education and has sent the two elder girls to the State Agricultural College, at Manhattan, Kan., where they graduated with credit.
