The parents were natives of Canada, who settled in Fond du Lac anterior to the Civil War period, the father spending his entire active life from boyhood as a lumberman and farmer. He died at Marinette about 1908, his wife dying about the year 1900. Julius EDWIN had very limited educational opportunities in his boyhood as he was employed in the lumber industry at the age of 16 years, work ing in the woods in winter and in sawmills in summer. During his spare moments in camp and on other favorable occasions he would endeavor by private study to add to his stock of useful knowledge and in time his education was much improved. He followed the logging industry mostly on the Marinette River and after that eight years in Oneida County. In 1909 he became agent for the Schlitz Company at Rhinelander, and is still holding that position.
