Thank you. It reads as follows:
LeRoy Bunn, a valued employee of teh Sawyer & Austin Lumber Company, and one of the highly respected pioneers of La Crosse county, was born at Dix, New York, in 1843. He is a son of Samuel D. C and Sarah (Griswold) Bunn, who were also natives of the Empire State. The father was a carpenter by trade, and in the year of the birth of our subject emigrated to Dane Countym Wisconsin; there he purchased land which he cultivated and improved for a period of twelve years; at the end of that time he sold his property and removed to Richland county where he purchased another farm. He risided on this land until 1861, when he again sold out, moving thence to Monroe county; there he bought land, which he held until 1868, when he sold the farm and homesteaded 160 acres on Buffalo river in Trempealeau count; there he lived the remainder of his days, his death occurring when he had attained the good old age of eighty-six years. The mother sold the farm in 1889, and with a son and daughter moved to Seattle, Washington; she is now seventy-two years old. They reared a family of four children, of whom Leroy is the oldest; the second, Emeline, is the wife of Samuel Cox, a resident of Washington. They have five children: Ida married C. C. Chamberlain, Mayor of Augusta, Wisconsin, andhas one daughter; Ora J., the fourth of the family, married Miss Maggie Hislop, and theyare theparents of two children.
Leroy Bunn attended the common schools a short season each year until he was eighteen, when he enlisted in the Sixth Wisconsin Battery. His father objected and took him home, putting him at farm work, whcih he continued to do until February 24, 1864, when he again enlisted in the Twenty-fifth Wisconsin Volunteer Infantry. He was in the engagements at Kenesaw Mountain, Atlanta, Dallas, Dalton, and Peachtree Creek; he marched through the Carolinas and on to Washington, where he took part in the Grand Review in June, 1865; the men of his regiment who enlisted in 1864 were transferred to the Twelfth Wisconsin Veteran Reserve, and this reserve was mustered out at Louisville, Kentucky, in July, 1865. After the cessation of hostilites he returned to Wisconsin and engaged in agricultural pursuits in Trempealeau county, which he followed until he entered the employ of the Sawyer and Austin Lumber Company.
Mr. Bunn was married in 1870 to Miss Sarah C. Streeton, a daughter of William and Sarah Streeton, old and valued residents of Burns township. Mr. Streeton is now seventy-six years of age and his wife is seventy-two. They are the parents of five children, Mrs. Bunn being the oldest. Jabez married Miss Lillie Hulbert of Burns Valley, and they have two children; Jacob lives with his parents; Anna, deceased, was the wife of William Mack, and died in 1884, leaving one daughter; Enos married Miss Lillie Jones. Mr. and Mrs. Bunn are the parents of one son, Irving J., who is a member of Robert Hughes Camp, No. 42, Sons of Veterans; a member of John Flynn Post, No. 77, G. A. R., and his wife belongs to the Relief Corps, No. 25, attached to the above post. He is a lifelong and earnest Republican.
