Marson, Arthur R. (1 July 1889 - 19??)
ARTHUR R. MARSON, who is a member of the well known business firm, N. P. Molter Plumbing & Heating Company, at Wausau, is one of the enterprising young men of this, his native city. He was born July 1, 1889, and is a son of John Peter and Minnie (Helt) Marson. Both parents were born in Germany, and the father came from one of the smaller provinces in early manhood, his objective point being Wisconsin. In 1872 he came to Wausau and was married here to Miss Minnie Helt, who survives. He was engaged first in the logging business, then in the liquor business in the town of Main, where he also carried on farming. Perhaps no man in Marathon County was better known in the bee industry than the father of Marson. He not only took a great deal of pleasure in raising bees but made the business of practical value and at one time owned more than 500 hives. His death occurred October 11, 1911. His children are all living: Arthur R., Ella, Erna, Freida, Myrtle and George.
Arthur R. Marson was six years old when his parents moved to the farm and there he attended school for about seven years when he returned to Wausau, where he took a course in a business college before entering the employ of Hett Bros., plumbers, in the capacity of bookkeeper. This firm later became Benjamin Hett, and still later, Hett & Molter, which changed to the N. P. Molter Plumbing & Heating Company, Mr. Marson having a one-fourth interest in the business since January, 1913, and having charge of the office. The position indicates a large amount of confidence being placed in the discretion and good judgment of the youngest partner.
In 1910 Mr. Marson was married to Miss Elsie Kuehl, a daughter of Carl Kuehl, of Wausau.
