Wood, Fred R., p. o. Sheds, a resident farmer of the town of De Ruyter, which has been his home for thirty four
years, was born in the town of Georgetown, N. Y., October 19, 1861, a son of Erastus and Seloria (Richardson) Wood.
When he was three years of age his parents removed to Shed's Corners, where his father kept a hotel for fifteen
years. Mr. Wood received his education in the public schools of De Ruyter, but learned more by actual contact with
the world than from books. The habits formed in early life have remained with him and still influence his conduct.
In January, 1883, he married Jennie, daughter of Levi and Marie (Wilson) Cook, and they have three children: Maud,
Earl and Grace. In politics Mr. Wood uniformly supports the Republican party, which finds him a hard worker and
firm in his adherence to its principles. He has held the office of justice of the peace since 1888. Fraternally
he is a member of De Ruyter Lodge, No. 692, F. and A. M.
