Pine, Edward L. (21 May 1879 – 19??)
EDWARD L. PINE, plumbing and heating contractor, with place of business at No. 116 Gallon street, Wausau, is a thoroughly experienced man in this line, having been in business since 1896. He was born at Eureka, Wis., May 21, 1879, and is a son of John and Ruth Pine. When he was two years old his parents moved to Omro, Wis., and there both died, the mother in 1893 and the father in 1897. He was a blacksmith by trade.
Edward L. Pine was reared and attended school at Omro and for eight months worked at the blacksmith trade with his father and brother. After leaving home he worked in mining camps as a miner in the northern part of Wisconsin, and from there engaged as assistant cook in lumber camps in northern Minnesota and Wisconsin, for two winters, after which, for several months he was fireman in a saw mill and might have continued there had not a freshet come that destroyed two bridges and carried 80,000,000 feet of lumber down the river, this catastrophe closing all the mills. Mr. Pine then went to Minneapolis where he became an apprentice with the firm of Hobart & Willis, plumbers and heating contractors, and there learned his trade and afterward worked in various places as a journeyman until 1896, when he established himself in the plumbing and heating business at Columbus Wis., where he remained until 1905, when he came to Wausau. At all times Mr. Pine has been an industrious man and through his energy has been successful in whatever he has undertaken. At present he has a heavy trade and many important contracts and is held in such high regard by his trade associates that on January 13, 1913, he was a second time elected president of the Wausau Master Plumbers' Association, and is also president of the Central Wisconsin Sanitary & Benevolent Social Club which comprises Master Plumbers from ten different cities.
Mr. Pine was married at Columbus, Wis., to Miss Clara E. Moll, and they have two children: Laurence Edward and Dorothy Ruth. Mr. Pine is a member of several fraternal organizations including the Modern Woodmen, the Knights of Pythias and the E. F. U.
