Maxon, Harrison C. (18 DEC 1839)

Harrison C. Maxon was born in Jefferson Co., N.Y., Dec. 18, 1839. He came to Walworth Co., Wis. when ten years old and lived there until coming to Jackson Co. in 1855. With the exception of about ten years spent in California and North Dakota he has resided in Humbird, Clark County, Wis. or near vicinity. He served two years during the civil war, first with the 14th Wi. Inf. Until wounded, and after recovering with the 11th Ill. Cav. He has been in the grain business for the past nine years, but has recently sold his warehouse and his present occupation is that of veterinary surgeon. He was married to Daisy Andrus Feb. 23, 1898 and has two children. The commencement of our progress was the building of the cheese factory followed by the push and enterprise of the businessmen. We now have a good creamery and business has so increased in other ways that the future looks very bright for a good town. Speaking of the paper here, Mr. Maxon said: "The Humbird Enterprise helps to advertise the business and brings many people here. It is not very large, but is a good newsy paper and is making its mark in the world and should be given credit for the influence that it has upon our growth." Humbird is fully up to surrounding towns of its size. What it needs is more capital and more energy on the part of its citizens.
