John Neidlein, born in North Milwaukee in 1861, left home at the age of 14 years and worked at wagon making in the Milwaukee area. In 1882 he came to Marshfield but soon after came to Spencer to work for Ed. Wendell, who had heard of him and was anxious to procure competent help, which was scarce at that time. John had charge of the wagon shop while Wendell ran the blacksmith shop. Two or three years later he started his own woodworking shop, building wagons and sleighs and later selling farm machinery and supplies.
Here, on December 7, 1890, John Neidlein married Henrietta Schluenz, who, when 12 years old, had moved here with her parents in 1882. They lived in a new house, now known as the old Neidlein house, across from the bank.
