Wilcox, Charles M., of the firm Cotterell & Wilcox, was born November 9th, 1858, in Clinton county, N. Y. At a very early age his parents immigrated westward and settled in Oconomowoc, Wis., where they lived until 1868, when they removed to Elgin, Minn., when they again moved, this time to Lac Parle of that State. Charles remained there until 1880 when he went to Mitchell, Dak., and entered the drug trade, having previously engaged in that line of commercial pursuit. In April, 1889 he came to Spencer and formed a partnership with Mr. Cotterell, and purchased L. L. Wright & Co.'s drug store. By years of practice and constant handling of drugs, he has attained a degree of proficiency in compounding drugs that makes him a professional with the graduate, pestle and mortar.
