NATHANIEL T. KELLY, of the firm of W. P. Kelly & Bro., owners of a saw mill on the Big Eau Claire River, six miles east of Wausau. Mr. Kelly first went to the Big Eau Claire River Sept. 17, 1850. When he arrived at Mr. Goodhue’s mills, on the above stream, he had twenty-five cents as capital, to begin with. He worked by the month for eight years, and having a speculative mind, he soon engaged in the lumber business, on his own account, and he now owns half interest in the same mill, in company with his sister-in-law, Mrs. W. P. Kelly, who owns the other half interest. Their mill was erected in 1874; the capacity of which is $75,000 in twenty-four hours. They employ about 100 men. They have a large, fine tract of pine and hardwood timber in that vicinity. Mr. Kelly was born in Ithaca, N.Y., Oct. 5, 1834. He was married, Aug. 5, 1861, at Stevens Point, to Nellie M. Karner, who was born in Egremont, Mass. They have three children, Lou, Frank, and Mabel.
