On April 1, 1905, he purchased the hotel he now owns, and moved into it at once, and since then he has made this one of the most popular hostelries of this section.

    In 1875, Mr. DeWall, was married to Miss Amelia Melchert, who was born June 5, 1857, the youngest of a family of seven children, and a native of Outagamie county.
