Haesle, John (26 July 1877 - 19??)


JOHN HAESLE, one of the representative business men of Wausau senior member of the firm of Haesle & Williams, dealers in meats at No. 524 Forest Street, has been engaged in this line of work ever since his school days ended. He was born at Marathon City, Wis. July 26, 1877, and is a son of Vincent and Pauline Haesle, and a grandson of Joseph Haesle, who was one of the earliest settlers of Marathon City. The parents of Mr. Haesle still reside at Marathon City, highly respected people and members of the Catholic Church.


John Haesle grew to manhood in his native place, attended the public schools and there learned the meat business and worked for six and one-half years with Anton Blier. He then came to Wausau and has been engaged in the business for about eighteen years at his present location, first as an employee of Gilhani & Rich, and for the past eight years has been associated with his present partner, Joseph Willems, with whom he bought out the old firm. The present firm is well financed, has excellent accommodations, maintains its slaughter house on the west side of the city and enjoys a heavy trade that their honorable methods and superior goods deserve.  


Mr. Haesle was married to Miss Catherine Graebel, a daughter of J. J. Graebel, a prominent merchant of Wausau, and they have four children: Clara, Mary, Gertrude and Irene. The family belongs to St. Mary's Catholic Church. Mr. Haesle is a member of the Catholic Order of Foresters and of the Columbian Orchestra, in which he plays the first violin and in this connection it may be added that he is the proud owner of the first violin that was ever brought to this country, an early pioneer to Marathon City having it among his most cherished possessions.
