David P. Candell, a pioneer of Eau Claire county, and one of the influential and substantial citizens, was born September 28, 1846. He came to Eau Claire with his parents in June, 1856, who engaged in farming in Union township. He remained on the farm assisting in the work until he reached the age of sixteen when he went to work on the river, an occupation he followed for sixteen years. At the end of that period he returned to the farm in Union township, where he has since successfully and actively engaged in farming. He owns 113 acres of land, most of which lies in the town of Union and all of which is well improved. His residence is in Shawtown, where he and his family live in the enjoyment of both city and country life.

Mr. Candell has been twice married. His first wife was Catherine Lawley, by whom he had three sons, Frank, James and George. The mother of these children died in 1889, and he took for his second wife Mary Burke, daughter of Michael Burke, of Dodge county, Wisconsin. By this union five children have been born, viz.: Mary, Esta, Rose, Emmett and Burnard, all of whom live at home and with their parents are members of St. Patrick's church, of Eau Claire.
