    Louis was a harness maker. In 1880 a fire started in downtown Baraboo at
    Oak and Third Street and swept away about 1/4 block. The fire was fought
    with men forming bucket brigades and using water that was obtained from a
    large cistern near the present location of the court house. Louis Platt
    was one of the merchants whose business was burned. His harness shop with
    about $150 of supplies and machinery was lost. Years later his wife
    indicated that much of this loss occurred after the fire when his stock
    was taken by onlookers. He had learned his trade from August Ringling,
    father of the Ringling brothers who had the great 'Ringling Brothers
    Circus'. For many years Louis made all of the fancy and ornamental
    harnesses for the circus. His death in 1904 was from a stroke of apoplexy.

    In addition to his own seven children, Louis was guardian to his niece
    Mary Platt, daughter of Jacob (Johann Jakob) Platt.

    O. R. Clement says Louis died 26 Apr.
