Stafford, Michael (1825 - 23 Apr. 1874)

Born in Wexford, Ireland, in 1825. Settled in Wausau June 13, 1851. In 1853, he went into the lumbering business. He was drowned, in 1874, on the 23d of April. He went to Mosinee, where he had a fleet of lumber tied up that the boys feared to run. On looking at the stage of water, he said, "I will run it myself." He started with a "rapid piece," and was knocked overboard by the oar-stem. He was an industrious man.
