D. F. Dwyer, the owner of an excellent general store in Colon, was born in Union precinct, this county, upon
his father's homestead, on the 4th of February, 1883, and is a son of John Dwyer, now living in Cedar precinct.
Our subject received his education in the district schools of Union precinct and in the Fremont Normal School.
He remained at home until 1912 and then engaged in the mercantile business. In October, 1914, he bought the Colon
Mercantile Company and is now conducting a general store under his own name. He has a high grade stock of goods,
selected with the aim of meeting the demands of his customers, and his prices are reasonable. He has a good patronage
and is recognized as one of the leading business men of the town.
On the 14th of February, 1912, Mr. Dwyer was married to Miss Elizabeth Stoekinger, a native of Manitowoc, Wisconsin,
by whom he has a daughter, Nathalia Bernice, who was born August 13, 1914.
Mr. Dwyer is independent in politics, voting for the man rather than the party. Fraternally he is connected with
the Knights of Columbus and, as this indicates, he is a communicant of the Catholic church, to which his wife also
belongs. Both have won many friends in Colon and the surrounding country. He has gained a gratifying measure of
success for one of his years, and his aggressiveness and business ability insure continued prosperity.
