He came to Wisconsin in 1882 and for ten years worked in lumber camps. In 1892 he came to Reseberg township and purchased 120 acres, of which his present farm is a part. He was the first treasurer of Reseberg.

Mr. Landry was married to Dora Oesau of New Holstein, Wis., on Nov. 15, 1888. Mrs. Landry died some years ago. Four children survive, Wallace J., Howard, Harry and Belle.
