Croker, Edward B. one of the representative farmers of Vilas County, was born on the farm where he now resides, May 9, 1897, son of Edward A. and Matilda (MARCO) CROKER. He was educated in the schools of Vilas County, and he learned argiculture from his father and uncle, with whom he had always lived. In 1917 the uncle, Clinton F. CROKER, deeded to him the farm in Section 17, town of Lincoln, consisting of 150 acres, and he is now carrying on the operation of this property. He had made excellent progress, and is recognized as a successful farmer and a progressive, hustling citizen. He has held the office of town clerk for the past six years. He is a member of the Modern Woodmen of America, and he and his family belong to the Catholic Church. Mr. CROKER was married May 23, 1917, to Emma K. SCHMIDT, and Mr. and Mrs. CROKER have two children, Lenore and Edward A., Jr., the latter having been named in honor of his grandfather. It is worthy to note that the Croker family were pioneers in the agricultural development of Vilas County along modern lines, and were the first to own and operate a binder and threshing machine.
