Biographical Sketch of James Semple.

JAMES SEMPLE. Mr. Semple built the first mill in this county, in March, 1874. He got the mill in operation, and ran it until July 20, when Messrs. Whelen & Robinson were admitted as partners. Mr. Semple was born in Lower Canada, near Montreal, and went to Granby to school. The family afterward moved to Massachusetts, and finally to Oshkosh, where the brothers and mother still reside. He was a man very much liked by his men, and, had he lived, would have been a leading citizen. He died in September, 1874.
