Paul, William E., son of Edwin L., and Caroline (Hudson) Paul, was born in Leray township in 1861. His father at present is a resident of Watertown and his mother is deceased. Mr. Paul has four brothers: George B., of Hutchinson, Minn., Charles B., Albert J. and Albin J., residents of Leray. Mr. Paul remained at home until he reached his majority, working on the farm in summers and attending the schools of the neighborhood winters. Soon after reaching his twenty-first birthday he purchased the farm where he now resides, consisting of 195 acres of valuable land and started out for himself. That he has prospered is evident from the appearance of both farm and herd. Mr. Paul is a member of Court Evans Mills No. 1,552 of I. O. F. In politics he is a Republican, as was his father before him. In Septeniber, 1888, he married Matilda J. Getman, and they had four children: Laura May, Emmery B., Wilfred S. and Bertha. Mr. Paul is one of the thorough farmers of the neighborhood.
