CYRIL P. LA FLEUR, of section 10, Weston Township, Clark Co., Wisconsin, was born in the Province of Montreal, Lower Canada, May 6, 1824, the son of Francis (deceased) and Sophia (Marscean) La Fleur, both natives of Canada. They were the parents of three children: Cyril P., our subject; Theodore, a Baptist minister of Montreal; and Almyra, who died at the age of twenty eight years. Our subject was reared on a farm and educated in the public schools of his native country. He came to the State of New York when eighteen years old, and worked in a tannery at Keysville two months, after which he came to Warren County, where he worked a few years at the same occupation. He next drove a team one year, hauling bricks and leather from Minerva to Glens Falls, and also worked in the saw mills and at shoemaking. He came to this county in 1869, and in 1875 settled on his present farm of eighty acres, sixty acres of which is cleared, and where he is engaged in general farming and stock raising.
