EDWARD MUNDEN, Eau Claire, was born in New Jersey, Nov. 29, 1832, his mother dying when he was an infant. His earliest years were spent in New York City, and when he was six years old he came with his father to Geneva, Walworth Co. When he was but eight years old his father died and he was afterward obliged to depend upon his own exertions for a living. He came to Eau Claire in 1855, and engaged in painting. He was the first painter in Eau Claire and drew the first paint brush on a house in this place. He was afterward engaged in trading in produce, etc., for four or five years, then in the grocery and provision trade, until he was burned out in January 1870, when he began trading in machinery, wagons and buggies; he has also been interested in the hardware business since the Spring of 1881. He has been Deputy Sheriff. He is a member of the A. O. U. W., and has held various offices in the lodge.
