Young, John P. (11 August 1860 – 19??)
JOHN P. YOUNG, confectioner, who is one of the representative business men of Wausau, was born August 11, 1860, at Berlin, in Green Lake County, Wis., a son of John Young who was a farmer there.
John P. Young was reared on the home farm and was seventeen years of age when he came first to Wausau where he remained for several years and, in fact, has lived here ever since with the exception of seven years. After learning the confectionery business in all its branches, including the manufacture of such dainties as ice cream and sherbets, he began business for himself, December 10, 1891, as a dealer and in the following year began manufacturing. His first location was on Washington Street, and then he was in the Lawrence Building for nine and one-half years and has occupied his present quarters for the past two years. His business is an extensive one and he largely manufacturers for the city trade.
Mr. Young was married at Wausau on April 5, 1884, to Miss Sophia E. Peterson, who was born at Watertown, Wis., but was reared in Marathon County. They have two children: Roscoe B., who married Charlotte Stowe; and Margaret Ann. Mr. Young, takes all the interest in local matters that good citizenship demands. Fraternally he is connected with the Knights of Pythias and the Royal Arcanum.
