Francis E. TAYLOR as a boy attended common and high school at Iola and subsequently took a commerical course. In 1915 he came to Merrill and for one year thereafter was in the employ of the Iron company. He then bought an interest in the concern, becoming manager of the plant, of which he is now president and the largest stockholder. He is a member of the Elks and Rotary Club and occupies a high position among the successful business men of Merrill. Mr. TAYLOR was married in Merrill, in January, 1911, to Anna GATIEN, daughter of Joseph and Margaret GATIEN. Her parents were early settlers here, the father following the trade of shoemaker. Both are now deceased. Mr. and Mrs. TAYLOR are the parents of a son, Donald, who was born May 14, 1914.
