DONALD J. MURRAY, Wausau, was born near the city of Wick, Scotland, April 12, 1849, and came from Scotland to Wisconsin in 1867. He lived in Menominee, Mich., until 1874, when he came to Wausau, and became superintendent of the Wausau iron works, established in April, 1874. They manufacture all kinds of saw-mill machinery and builders' supplies, and employ about fifty men. For the last three years, Mr. Murray has conducted the business alone. They manufactured about $160,000 worth of goods in 1880, and ship their goods largely to the South. Mr. Murray was married in Dundas, Minn., May 24, 1871, to Ellen R. Van Alstine, who was born in Lower Canada. They have three children Nellie J., Gertrude I. and Mollie.
