JOSEPH BOLL. A well-known Antigo lumberman, who has been a resident of Langlade County since 1882 is Joseph Boll, who was born on August 16, 1878, at Clark's Mills, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin. When four years of age he moved with his parents to Antigo, then a small village. Here he grew to manhood, having during his boyhood attended the parochial schools and the Antigo High School.

From his youth he has followed the lumbering business, working at one time with the late B. F. Dorr, first civil engineer of the city, as a surveyor and cruiser, for six years. He was twelve years associated with the Kingsbury & Henshaw lumber company as their foreman and since the reorganization of the Henshaw Lumber Company has remained as foreman of the plant.

Mr. Boll was married in November, 1899, to Mary Yentz. To this union six children were born. They are Roy, born on June 25; Lila, born August 4; Iola, born January 9; Clayton born July 17; Marie, born May 4, and Chester, born September 4.

Fraternally Mr. Boll is a member of the Eagles, and Antigo lodge No. 662 Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks. The Boll residence is at 206 South Clermont street. Mr. Boll takes a keen interest in sports, is a lover of the great out-of-doors, and delights in spending a day or two at a good trout stream or a week in the tall timber during the deer hunting season.
