Youngquist, Fred superintendent of the sawmill at Winchester operated by the Turtle Lake Lumber Co., was born at West Troy, Mich., March 20, 1881, son of John and Christine (BERGSTROM) YOUNGQUIST. The parents were both born in Sweden; they came from that country to the United States in 1876, first settling on the Muskegon River in Michigan and later removing to West Troy. They came to Wisconsin in 1889 and were residents of McNaughton, Oneida County, for five years, during which period the father worked in the mill operated by the McNaughton Lumber Co., but which was later owned by Bradley & Kelley. For the next 12 years they lived at Woodboro, the father remaining in the employ of the George E. Wood Lumber Co. there until they furnished operations. Then for seven years they lived at Bundy, after which they were in Odanah for a short time and came from there to Winchester in 1920; the father is now working for the Turtle Lake Lumber Co. here. Fred YOUNGQUIST was reared in Wisconsin, receiving most of his education at McNaughton and starting to work in the mill there at the age of 12 years. He continued with his parents at the various towns in which they resided in Wisconsin, and came to Winchester in 1919 in his present capacity as sawmill superintendent for the Turtle Lake Lumber Co. His position is a responsible one, but Mr. YOUNGQUIST is a splendid executive and has made a good record. He has a very wide circle of friends here, and he and his family take an active part in the social life of the community. Mr. YOUNGQUIST was married at Woodboro, Wis., March 16, 1901, to Miss Ida May BOGIE. Mr. and Mrs. YOUNGQUIST have had ten children, of whom eight are now living, namely: Conrad, Irene (now Mrs. Jaems HIVERNAUGHT of Winchester), Alvine, May, Robert, Fred, James, and Louise. One died in infancy and two others are also now deceased.
