In 1893 he came to Rhinelander, Oneida County, and engaged in logging and farming and later for awhile in the saloon business. In 1909 he came to Monico, bought a small hotel building and engaged in the hotel business. He has enlarged and greatly improved the building, having installed a steam heating plant, hot and cold water and electric lights, and is now conducting a first class commercial hotel with profitable results. He is also a stockholder in the Northwestern Oil Co. at Rhinelander and owns two fine farms in Oneida County, one at McNaughton and the other at Monico, in addition to other village property in Monico besides his hotel. He is a member of the Catholic Church and, fraternally, of the local lodge of Eagles.
