LEVI MUTCHLER, Sec. 17; P. O. Stoner’s Prairie; born June 7, 1834, in Warren Co., N. J.; son of J. G. and Mary (Metz) Mutchler, both natives of New Jersey. He married, March 8, 1856, in his and her native county, Miss Anna M. Messenger; his parents accompanied them West, they reaching Dane Co. April 12, 1856; 360 acres were bought, 40 in Verona; the mother died in 1858, and the father Aug. 6, 1876. Levi Mutchler now owns 210 acres, on which twenty-four years ago the only building was a small log house and his frame house, which he has thoroughly remodeled; the old barn was also built, but to the present owner is due the building of two good frame houses, a barn and granary. Mr. and Mrs. M. have four children—Ida E.; Lida P., Walter and Philip, all born on the Fitchburg homestead. Mr. M. is a Republican, and has held school offices; the family are attendants of the local churches.
