Mr. H. LaBossier was born in Franklin county Vermont, in 1851. In 1854 the family moved to Canada. When but seventeen years of age he returned to this country and secured a situation as farm hand in Rock county, Wisconsin, where by steady work and economical living he succeeded in saving one thousand dollars. In 1875 he went to Fond du Lac, and in company with J. Boulis, opened a shoe store. They remained there one year, and then moved to Dorchester, in Clark County, and opened a general store. They did some logging here and dealt in railroad ties, wood, hemlock bark and so forth outside of the general mercantile business. Mr. LaBossier has now accumulated a property worth from $20,000 to $25,000.
