    Biographical Information From the book, Dorchester Small in Size Big in History and Happenings; A North Central Wisconsin Village Takes Root In 1873 BY Jim Jantsch. 2005

    "Frank Nagle (sic) came to Dorchester in 1893 and opened up the first real barber shop. It was known as Frank Nagel's Tonsorial Parlor and was located on the lot south of the Dorchester Co-op Building. Webster?s dictionary defines tonsorial as shaving of the head area. Frank leased the building for two years until it burned down in the 1895 fire. He then purchased the property in 1895 for $145. Frank left the barber business in 1914; concentrating instead on the other businesses he was involved with. He was elected "Justice of the Peace" for many years, served as a Notary Public and functioned as a Defense Attorney for whoever needed legal advice or court room representation."

    An advertisement that appeared in the Rock Island Argus 29 October 1912, on the second page. I'm not sure why Frank Nagel ended up endorsing this or why the was buying a mass quantities of a concoction that while popular was latter declared by federal agencies to be deceptively labeled.

    There's a good chance he knew nothing about this. In 1912 he might have taken a horse west from Dorchester WI to the Mississippi River. That would have taken three days. From there another two days by river boat would have taken him to Moline IL. It's pretty certain he never would have seen this paper.
    Immigration / Naturalization Before 1879 
    Friederich and his son Frank are not on the ships Manifest with his wife and his other two boys. He must have come first and sent for his wife latter.
