FREDERICK G., STANLEY, P.O. Chippewa City, was born in Canandaigua, N. Y., March I, 1824, and when twenty-one years of age went to Baraboo, Sauk Co., in this State. He was one of the very early pioneers of that place and lived there until May. 1870, when he moved to Chippewa Falls, his family following him in the Fall of that year. He there purchased the Chippewa City Lumber Mill and has been continuously engaged in manufacturing lumber. The mill is located on O'Neil Creek and is one of the finest and most secure water powers to be found, and has a capacity of manufacturing 4,000,000 feet in the season, beside a large amount of shingle and lath. A large farm and store is run in connection with the mill, which employs from thirty to thirty-five hands. Mr. Stanley is also Postmaster at that place. His son, Charles, ably seconds him in the management of his business. The parents of Mr. Stanley, Whitney D. and Mariah Stanley, soon followed their son west, and in 1848 purchased in Vienna, Dane Co., 700 acres of land, where they opened up a fine farm and lived until 1877, when the father died at an advanced age, the mother preceding him about two years. Mr. Stanley was married in Baraboo, Sept. 30, 1846, to Miss Julia Nethaway. who came from Canandaigua by canal to Buffalo and around the lakes to Milwaukee and thence by stage to Baraboo. They have four children: Charles Augustus, Isabel M., Clara M. and Ida May, all born in Baraboo. Mr. Stanley is a member of the F. A. M. Lodge 34. Baraboo.
