Stypczyski, John a resident of Oneida County for 37 years, and who for 32 years has operated a blacksmith's shop in the village of Three Lakes, being now associated with his son Alex, was born in Poland, where he grew to manhood and married Wanda EBEL. In April, 1884, they emigrated to the United States, landing at New York and coming west to Princeton, Green Lake County, Wis., where they remained for a year. They then removed to Oshkosh, where Mr. STYPCZYSKI followed his trade of blacksmith until 1886, in the employ of Straight Bros., in that year coming with his family to Three Lakes. He now changed his occupation, taking a homestead of 80 acres in the town of Gagen, which was then in Forest County, but is now the town of Three Lakes, Oneida County, and there he remained five years, during which time he erected a set of log buildings and cleared a part of the land. In 1891 he left the farm and took up his residence in the village, erecting a blacksmith shop which he has since conducted, and also having a woodworking shop, where he has built many wagons, sleighs and buggies, being an expert workman in both branches of his business. His son Alex has been his helper and associate since he became old enough to be useful, and he, himself, now dues but little of the heavy work. He is widely known and for many years has been one of the most prominent men in his township. In early days he helped to lay out many miles of roads which are now state highways, and for quite a number of years he served as supervisor on the town board. His wife Wanda died in 1900, since which time he has made his home with his son Alex. In addition to this son they had a daughter, Mary, who is now Mrs. David NELSON of Three Lakes.
