WILLIAM FOWLDS, Chippewa Falls, came to this place in the Fall of 1865 from Canada West, near the Ottawa River; born in Sterlingshire, Scotland, Dec. 27, 1842, and emigrated with his father's family to Canada in 1853, and lived there until he came to Chippewa Falls, his father and family moving to Minnesota in 1865. Mr. Fowld has three sisters and four brothers, and death has never yet broken the family circle of his father's family. July 17, 1881, the entire family of brothers and sisters, with their families, numbering thirty-two members, met under the paternal roof of Mr. John Fowlds, in Grove Lake, Minn., and enjoyed a family reunion. June 29, 1869, Mr. Fowlds was married in Eau Claire to Miss Margaret Foster, of Canday. They have four children—Stewart, Sarah Ann, Mariah Maggie and Jessie. Mr. Fowlds has been engaged in lumbering for twenty-three years, and for sixteen years has been extensively engaged in that pursuit in the Chippewa Valley.
