Mr Peaslee enlisted in 1861 from New York. He re-enlisted in 1863 from Wisconsin and was a member of the 21st regiment of Wisconsin infantry. After the war Mr Peaslee came to this place and has made this his home since that time. He was a wool sorter by trade and for many years was employed in the local woolen mill.
