DOMENIC C. CAVADINI is the postmaster
of the Buckingham office, and devotes his time to general farming and merchandising.
He owns a half section of land which is well improved and he has recently
opened a mercantile store at the postoffice. He intends in a very
short time to add a stock of general goods which is warranted by the development
of the community and the excellent patronage he has secured. He is
a man of first-class principles and manifests wisdom and energy in business
Domenic C. Cavadini was born in Lombardy,
Italy, on October 12, 1856, the son of Dominic and Catherina (Revolta)
Cavadini, natives of Italy. They settled in La Crosse, Wisconsin,
in 1864, where our subject received his education and grew to manhood.
After completing a high school course, he took a course in the business
college and later began traveling in various portions of the country.
In the vicinity of Cheyenne, Wyoming, Mr. Cavadini followed well drilling
for seven years, then returned to his old home in Wisconsin on a visit,
after which he came west and followed well drilling for five years longer.
In 1889 he made his way to Douglas county, spending the first winter near
Coulee City. In the spring of 1890, he moved to the estate where
he now lives and has been here continuously since. He added much
more land by purchase and has the balance well improved, his thrift being
demonstrated by all the particulars of the estate. Mr. Cavadini is
an excellent postmaster and has won the respect and esteem of the entire
community and is the recipient of a very fine patronage in business.
He has three brothers and one sister, all living in Wisconsin.
On November 27, 1901, at St. Peter's church,
in La Crosse, Wisconsin, Mr. Cavadini married Mrs. Elizabeth Cavadini,
the daughter of Henry and Annie (Gresemer) Reichert, natives of Germany
and early settlers of Wisconsin, where they now live. Mrs. Cavadini
was born in Chicago, on April 16, 1858, and has three brothers and six
sisters. By her former marriage to Joseph Cavadini, she has one child,
Mary. Our subject and his wife are members of the Catholic church
and devout supporters of the faith.
