Joseph Shereda, who was connected with the lumber interests of Wisconsin for a number of years, finally moved to Muscoda, Wis., where he died in 1893. His wife is still residing there. They had three sons: Edward, now living in Muscoda; Vandi F., of Owen, and William, of Musdoda. Vandi F. Shereda, after completing a course of study in a business college at La Crosse, in 1908, became telegraph operator at Muscoda, Wis., for the C., M. & St. P.
