Ervin Simon Meissner was born in the town of Little Black, Taylor County, Wisconsin, March 4, 1896. When he was four his parents moved to Nasonville, Rock Township, Wood County, where he has made his home since. He received his education in a school one mile south of Nasonville and assisted on the home farm until 1920, when, following the retirement of his father, Charles Meissner, Rock Township, he took charge of the home place on a lease and has conducted it since. Recently he closed a deal for the purchase of an improved 120-acre farm five miles southwest of Greenwood, on which he and family plan to move next summer. His mother passed away in 1916.
The Greenwood place has a 36x76-foot stone basement barn, built three years ago; a 12x35-foot cement stave silo, built two years ago; and a fine two-story residence that lacks only the interior finish of being completed. Eighty acres of the land is under plow, the rest is in timber and pasture. In cattle he is changing from Holsteins to Brown Swiss. His swine are Poland Chinas, of which he has 22, and his chickens are White Rocks. He also has four horses. In other equipment is a full set of machinery except a tractor and thresher.
