    Mr. Huson was married April 30, 1879, to Miss Susan Nichols, a daughter of John and Susan Nichols.  Mrs. Huson was born in Plymouth, Wis.  Of this union three children have been born, one son and two daughters, Clara H., Mary G. and Willard L.

    Mr. Huson was engaged in farming in Lyndon Township until beginning his present business, in 1883.  At that time the business was conducted under the firm name of Huson Bros.  Since 1892 Henry Timm has been a member of the firm, the name being changed to Huson Bros. & Timm.

    In his political sentiments, Mr. Huson is a Republican, and socially is a member of Plymouth Union Lodge No. 71, I. O. O. F., of Plymouth Camp No. 724, M. W. of A.; and also of Lodge No. 520, R.
