Otto Boll is one of the successful farmers of Sheboygan Falls township where he is engaged in general farming and in the raising of high-grade Friesian cattle. He was born in Sheboygan Falls May 25, 1886, and is the son of Mr. and Mrs. (Joachim) Boll, both of whom were natives of Germany, and who emigrated to the United States, settling on a farm in Sheboygan county, Wisconsin.
