Edward was ever an ambitious boy and when not attending school was acquiring valuable knowledge of general farming by assisting his father, with whom he remained until 1881. Being then twenty-two years of age, the subject of this biography started in life for himself and went to Halstad, Minn., where he was employed for two years. at the expiration of that period of time, he returned to Preble and bought a farm, which he operated for five years and then sold. In 1888 he bought of S. S. Hookland his present property, which comprises 200 acres on sections twenty-nine and thirty-four in Preble and forty acres on section three in Newburg township. He has improved his farm and made it one of the well kept places in the community. He carries on general farming and dairying, keeps thirty head of cattle for general dairy purposes and fifteen horses for farm and driving. He owns stock in the Mabel elevator and has various business interests. Politically he is affiliated with the Republican party and among public offices which he has occupied is that of treasurer of the school board for six years. In 1882, March 13, he was united in marriage with Martha Hookland, who has borne his seven children: Sibert, Clarence, Alfred, Edwin, Blanche, Roy and Lea.
