Famous Americans

William Eardly was born in Wickloff Co., Ireland, about the year 1823. When 20 years of age he came to America, accompanied by his brother James (deceased). He came to this tp. and purchased land, to which he has added until he is the owner of 320 acres in this tp. and 80 in Walker. Mr. Eardly is the sole survivor of three sisters and eight brothers. He settled in Cascade when it was-a wilderness arid inhabited by Indians, and he encountered the experiences common to pioneer life. He is considered one of the wealthiest citizens of the tp., having been successful in all business ventures, and has the reputation of generosity and benevolence. He takes much pride in the Catholic Church of Cascade, which he was instrumental in establishing.
