Published in: HISTORY OF NORTHERN WISCONSIN by Western Historical Company, Chicago, Illinois, 1881

ROBERT MARRINER, Cadott, was born in Milton, Northumberland Co., Penn., June 11, 1830, and came from Alleghany City, Pen., to Eau Claire in the "Spring of 1853. He was employed in the saw-mill of Hope, Stone & Randall for about two months, and then came to Chippewa Falls, and ran a boot and shoe manufactory for H. S. Allen for about a year. He was then engaged in rafting for one Summer, and in the Fall of 1855 he took a contract to haul in and raft logs down the river to Wabasha and bringing supplies back until July, 1856, when a steamboat was put on the river, taking the place of a keel-boat in carrying freights. Mr. Marriner engaged in logging and lumbering most of the time (except 1862, when he was in the boot and shoe business), until 1866, when he went to Cadott Falls and built a saw-mill. In the Summer of 1874 he built a grist-mill there, and, in 1875, he laid out the town of Cadott, the village originally containing twenty-five acres. Mr. Marriner has since laid out two additions. He was Sheriff in 1859-60; Provost-marshal of Chippewa County, and at large for two years; Chairman of the Town Board of Supervisors of the town of Sigel for ten years, and Chairman of the County Board for three successive years. He was married in Chippewa Falls in November 1860, to Eleanor Norway, who was born in St. Lawrence Co., N.Y. They have one child living - Charles - and have lost three children, who died in infancy, and one son William, who died in January, 1881 aged sixteen years.
