Stanzil, Edward of Three Lakes, who has resided in Oneida County since babyhood and is well known to most of the inhabitants of the county as guide, sportman and highway patrolman, was born in Menasha, Wis., June 28, 1887, son of Edward and Louise (FRENCH) STANZIL. Both parents were born in Wisconsin, the father near Medford and the mother at Menasha, and they were married at Medford, Taylor County. When Edward was a year and a half old his mother came to Three Lakes, where she later married Harvey LOCY. He later died and she afterwards married Henry ANDERSON, and made her home in Three Lakes until her death on April 5, 1923. Edward STANZIL as a boy attended school in Gagen and Three Lakes, Oneida County. He began industrial life as a cook in lumber camps, an occupation that he followed for several years, though during the summers he did guide work for tourists. After that he was engaged in the ice business for 12 years, and then for three years operated a farm. For two years also he had charge of the Three Lakes Rod and Gun Club. Since early manhood Mr. STANZIL has followed trapping and has caught and killed 20 bears in Oneida and Forest counties. He owns a 49-acre tract of lake frontage on Stone Lake, where he spends the summer months. At the present time he is serving as patrolman on State Highway No. 32, near Three Lakes. Mr. STANZIL was married in Clintonville, Waupaca County, Wis., Dec. 2, 1912, to Luetta CATT, who was born in that place Sept. 5, 1895, daughter of James and Alice (WAITE) CATT, her perents being well known farmers near Clintonville, where they are still living. The Stanzil home now includes four children, Lou A., Mildred M., Edward J., and Duane H. The family attend the Congregational Church, while Mr. STANZIL also belongs to the Modern Woodmen of America. He owns his residence on Superior Street.
