Mylo B. Wyman, who for many years was one of the leading and most influential citizens of Eau Claire, was a native of New York state, and was born at Meredith, June 8, 1842. When 12 years of age he came to Eau Claire with his parents from New England and grew up in this city, where he lived for over half a century, and was always active in promoting the business growth of this city. In his earlier years he was engaged in the mercantile business with Mr. Carrol, and later was associated with the firm of Graham, White & Co., on the North Side. He was with the Empire Lumber Company for several years. He entered into a co-partnership with Erskine Ingram and formed the Half Moon Lake Shingle Company, of which Mr. Wyman was president for thirteen years.
As a business man his reputation was unblemished, and his success in all his undertakings was the direct result of his industry, integrity and perserverance, while his quiet, unassuming manner and sterling business qualities gained for him the firm griendship of a large circle of acquantances. No one feared to trust him, no matter in what position they desired him to fill, and his employees always spoke for him their kindliest regards. He was called from earth on December 2, 1906, but it can truthfully be said that his was a well spent life, that he was energetic, firm reliable in all his dealings, helpfull in all work tending to the benefit of those around him, loved and revered by his family, respected and trusted by all who knew him. His character and his work were a blessing to the community in which he lived, and he left to his successor the best of all heritages---an honest name.
Mr. Wyman held many positions of public trust, and from its organization was secretary of the Eau Claire Building & Loan Association and Home Building Loan Association. As a member of theOld Settlers' Association he stood among the first in years of service and honorable reputation. He was a member of the Baptist church, regular in attendance and a dependable helper in religious and chritable enterprises. He was a member of the Masonic fraternity and an honored member of the Grand Army Post. He enlisted in Company L, Second Calvary, and held the rank of first sergeant, second lieutenant and first lieutenant successively. On September 19, 1869, Mr. Wyman married Miss Martha E. Kershner, a lady of culture and refinement, and two children were born, a son, who died in infancy, and a daughter Anna, who became the wife of the late Rev. Arthur C. Kempton. She is now the wife of Rev. Edward Babcock, of Utica, New York.
