Schilling, John F. president and cashier of the Bank of Minocqua, was born at Almond, Wis. Early in life he received a good business training, and in 1891 he came to Minocqua and established the Bank of Minocqua as a private institution. The bank was successful from the start, and in 1903 it was incorporated under the laws of Wisconsin as a State Bank. It has been a most valuable addition to the business life of Minocqua, and its founder has taken an active and useful part in all the development of the village. He has one of the finest homes here, modern throughout, facing on Lake Minocqua and commanding a wonderful view of the lake in all its native beauty. His present banking quarters, which he erected in 1922, is of brick and is splendidly appointed. Three children have been born to Mr. and Mrs. SCHILLING, the latter of whom before her marriage was Ella M. KLINE. These are Lois A., John T., and David H. Lois A. is a student in the high school and the two youngest attend the grade schools. Mr. SCHILLING is one of the leading citizens of the village and the family are well thought of in every way.
