His wife Hulda died in 1899 and he subsequently married Anna PETERSON. By his first wife there were three children: Edmund, of Doering; Gertrude, wife of Oscar COLLINS, and Sadie, wife of Herbert FROST. His children by his second wife were also three in number, namely: Inga, Pearl and Emma. Pearl is the wife of Ed FEHLBERG. Edmund NOEL was reared in Merrill, where he attended school. On his parents' farm he learned agriculture, working sometimes on other famrs, and he was also a clerk for three years in the Doering department store. In November, 1922, he opened a general store at Doering, on the plan of a department store, which he has since continued to operate, carrying a good supply of merchandise.
