Monday morning while W. J. Marsh was rearranging the shelves in his basement, he found a relic of the older days of Neillsville, the same being a framed photograph of the first Knight Templars in Neillsville. The picture is made up of John Currier, Levi Archer, Dr. French, W. S. Colman, James Reddan, Sam Boardman, Rev. Brothers, and G. A. Austin. All are in uniforms and considering its long burial, the photo is in an excellent state of preservation. It was taken about 38 years ago. All of the gentlemen, with one exception, have been dead for many years. The exception being George Austin, who resides here, and from his present state of health bides fares to survive his brothers for many more years. It is also notable that all the deceased gentlemen are buried in the Neillsville Cemetery. The photograph will be hung in the Masonic Lodge rooms. (from the Neillsville Times)
