19 History of Kestel Bros. Company: On May 6th, two brothers, John A. Kestel and George J. Kestel, opened a small general merchandise business under the name of Kestel Bros., at 302 N. Central Ave., then known as the 'Zeidler' building. Their capital was small, but their enthusiasm and determination was big. Their motto was, "Honesty is the Best Policy." They believed in selling honest merchandise at honest prices.
Their first three years, sales were small in figures, but big in the vision they had for the future. The business grew steady, but not phenomenal. On January 10th, 1910, the Michael Steinmetz business was taken over and a company was then formed which was called Kestel Bros. Company, which was incorporated under the laws of the State of Wisconsin. The company was capitalized at $25,000.00. The stockholders on above date were: C. E. Blodgett, John a Kestel, George J. Kestel, and J. M. Berg. The business during the first year under the new corporation increased 100%. On Feb. 1st, 1913, J. A. Kestel secured an option on Mr. C. E. Blodgett's stock and on March 1st, 1913, turned over this stock to 39 people in this city and rural districts with the guarantee of 6% on their investment and 5% on their purchases. It was at this time that the other brothers, Harry W. Kestel, Joseph J. Kestel, Math. J. Kestel and Peter J. Kestel, as also Math. P. Michaels, Joseph Seidl and Louis Rembs became stockholders of Kestel Bros. Co.
(This was taken in part from a brochure named "History of Kestel Bros. Company". Sometime in the later 20's or early 30's the Company was sold and most of the Kestell's moved from the Marshfield area to the State of Washington, including their parents, the George Kestell & Ferdinanda Tiry, or Mr. & Mrs. George Kestell.)
