Peter Michael Heiser, 812 South Oak Street, was born in Cooperstown, Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, August 18, 1870. After leaving school he worked on his father’s farm until he was 20. He accepted a job as conductor on the Milwaukee Street Railway System, which he held a year. He then spent seven years working in logging camps in northern Wisconsin, in harvest fields in North Dakota, and years running a head lettuce crate manufacturing industry at Thorp. On February 2, 1904, he associated himself with the Advance Threshing Company of Battle Creek, Michigan, as a traveling salesman, remaining with them until 1926. He changed to a similar job with the Huber Manufacturing Company of Marion, Ohio, also a thresher and tractor concern, where he has remained. He and his family moved from Thorp to this city in 1912. Their home has since been here, except for one year spent in Manitowoc. They returned to this city last September.
