Poole, Mr. and Mrs. Charles (55th - 1962)


Mr. and Mrs. Charles Poole observed their 55th wedding anniversary at their home on Grand Avenue recently.  They were married in 1907 in the home of the bride’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Tyler.  The residence is located at the corner of West Street and Fourth Street, known as the Felser residence.  Rev. Mr. Rice, a Congregational minister performed the ceremony.


They went to housekeeping on Court Street and have been residents of Neillsville continuously.  They lived for a period on East Fifth Street and in 1919 purchased the Thomas Lowe residence at 218 Grand Avenue, where they have lived the past 43 years.


Mr. Poole spent 20 years in the Wisconsin National Guard.  He enlisted at the close of the Spanish-American War in Co. "A" Third Wisconsin.  Although he never had done any cooking previously, he was made mess sergeant and he held the position during his entire service, at Camp Douglas each summer encampment, on the Mexican border in 1916, and in 1917-19 in France and Germany in World War I.  After World War I, Sgt. Poole retired from the service.


Mr. Poole was born in Richland County, Sylvan Township on July 25, 1877.  He came to Neillsville in 1889 and has made his home here since.  He was a professional paper hanger, interior decorator and painter.  Mrs. Poole, the former Celia Tyler, was born in the Town of Grant in the residence now owned by Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Blackman.  When Mr. Poole first started, every home had wall paper on the walls. The trend toward paint came after many years.
