Little, Peter B. a well-known merchant of Minocqua, was born in Canada, May 31, 1866, son of Michael and Jane (BLANCHARD) LITTLE. The parents were natives of Canada, whence, about 1873, they removed to the state of Maine. There the father operated a tannery for about three years, after which they return to Canada and spent the remainder of their lives in that country. Peter B. LITTLE was reared in Canada and the state of Maine and came to Wisconsin in 1886, locating at Chippewa Falls, where he spent seven years in working at the barber's trade during the summer months and logging in the woods during the winters. He then went to Fairchild, Wis., but a short time later returned to Chippewa Falls and went from there to Morse, where he remained three years. He then spent one year in Rhinelander, and in 1892 came to Minocqua, where he established a barber shop and operated it for the succeeding 18 years. He is now operating a confectionery store and is one of the useful and progressive business men of the community. He erected his present building in 1912, it being a two-story brick structure 25x40 feet in dimensions, and he makes his home on the second floor of this building. Mr. LITTLE was married at Minocqua, April 12, 1893, to Lena SMITH. One child, Erwin J., was born to Mr. and Mrs. LITTLE; he married Emma OLSON and is now in business with his father.
