DE WITT C. WOOD

De Witt C. WOOD, a young and enterprising farmer of Washington Township, is a native of Warren County, Illinois, born near the village of Berwick, February 21, 1864, a son of Allen and Mary S. WOOD. When he was two years of age his father died, and from that time until sixteen years old he made his home with his grandfather, Henry WAGONER. He was reared on a farm but received a common-school education, attending the schools of his district in the winter. When sixteen years old he started out to take care of himself and assist his mother, and rented a farm. He was successful and subsequently bought 100 acres, paying only part cash, however. After getting his land paid for he sold it and came to Iowa, and for a time lived in Taylor County, moving thence to Ringgold County, and located on his present farm which he took in exchange for one in Taylor County.

He is engaged in general farming and stock-raising, and is one of the enterprising and successful young men of the township.

He is unmarried, his mother and only sister, Maria E., making their home withhis. His sister is an intelligent, cultured young lady, and is one of the successful teachers of Ringgold County.
