Edna (Bobb) & Elias Ott


Edna Bobb was a school teacher at the Braun Settlement, Warner Township, Clark Co., WI School from 1904-1906.  At one time, the Bobb family lived in the Town of Reseburg.  As a young lady, my mother worked for the Bobb family.  Elias & Edna became life long friends of our family.  I remember spending Sunday afternoons at their little farm located on the outskirts of Stanley, WI.  Elias would bottle the milk from his small herd of cattle and peddle it to the citizens of Stanley and others in the area.  Edna and Elias are buried in Riverside Cemetery very near where my mother's folks are buried.
