News: Greenwood – Farmers’ and Merchants’ Bank (Jan 1912)


Surnames: Clute, Schofield, Stanton, Cornelius

----Source: Greenwood Gleaner (Greenwood, Clark Co., Wis.) 11 Jan 1912

A new state bank, to be known as the Farmers’ and Merchants’ State Bank of Greenwood, is now being promoted. Incorporation papers have been filed at Madison, with C. H. Clute, Dr. H. R. Schofield, John Stanton, of this city, Charles Cornelius of Neillsville, as others as incorporators.

Stock is now being solicited and it is an assured fact that the bank will be opened for business sometime during the next summer. The erection the building will commence as soon as things open up in the spring. It has not yet been decided what particular lot or place the building will be located, but it is reported that it will be placed somewhere south of the post office.

However, we understand that it will be a fine modern building, and will no doubt be a credit in the city.
