DELL R. RICHARDSON, a well known and successful merchant of Owen, Township, Clark County, was born in De Pere, Brown County, Wis., not far from Green Bay, Aug. 31, 1880, son of William and Anna (Cartier) Richardson. The parents were born and married in New York State, coming to Wisconsin in 1856. The father was born in 1846, and the mother in 1848. In 1881 they moved to Cadott, Chippewa County, where they are now living. William Richardson for a number of years was engaged in timber for the Clark Manufacturing Company of Cadott. He also served as assessor of that place, and of Seigel Township, Chippewa County, which latter position he still holds. Dell R. Richardson finished his studies in the high school of Cadott in 1898, and for the following nine years was clerk in a store there. In 1906 he became manager of the Owen Lumber Company's store at Owen, and remained in that position for six years. He then left the employ of that company to open a general store in Owen, and has built up a good business, being now a successful merchant and one of the leading citizens of that community. In 1913 he was elected village councilman. He is a member of the Episcopal Church and of Clover Belt Lodge, No. 165, K. of P.


Mr. Richardson was married, June 15, 1904, to Georgie Chabot, who was born at Chippewa, Jan. 21, 1891, daughter of Ambrose and Mary Elizabeth Chabot. Her father was under-sheriff of Chippewa County, also filling other local offices there and until recently was engaged in business at Stanley.
