Biography of Frank D. Wood

Wood, Frank D., is one of the prominent young men of the town of Bergen, of which he is a native, born April 24, 1860, a son of James and Susan (South) Wood. His parents were natives of England and in 1837 they came to America on a sailing vessel, requiring five months to make the voyage. James was a steady attendant at church and during the early years of his life walked regularly nearly every Sunday five miles to church; he was always a strict observer of the Sabbath and obliged his children to attend church and Sabbath school. Frank D. received his education in the Bergen public schools. During the years 1882, 1883 and 1884 he was a traveling salesman, selling farm machinery, and traveled through many of the Western States and Territories. He returned to Bergen and in 1898 purchased a farm of seventy acres, which he now carries on successfully. On February 16, 1886, he married Cora Louise Mason; they have one son, Percy Mason. Mr. Wood is an active Republican and has for several years been the Bergen member of the County Committee of that party.
