Wybo K. Wind, proprietor of a wholesale and retail bakery at Whitesboro and one of its most prosperous business
men, is a native of Holland. He was born at Friesland, December 4, 1869, a son of Edward E. Wind. After receiving
his early education in the public schools he learned the baker's trade and, being ambitions to carry forward his
work under the most favorable conditions, came to America with his parents in 1891. The father and mother are both
now living at Whitesboro.
Two years after arriving in this country Mr. Wind of this sketch had made such headway that he was able to open
a model bakery in New York Mills, Oneida county, which he conducted for two years. He then moved to Whitesboro,
where he has been very successful in his business and is now the owner of a large and completely appointed establishment,
occupying a brick building on Main street, which was erected in 1910. His success has exceeded his early expectations
and is due to thorough knowledge of his business and his constant desire to please his patrons. He is an active
worker in behalf of promoting the efficiency of men engaged in his calling and is a member of the National, New
York State and Utica Bakers Associations.
In 1893 Mr. Wind was married to Miss Mary Palmer, and they are the parents of five children, Nellie, Henry, Edward,
Joseph and Andrew, all of whom are being given excellent advantages of education in the public schools. Mr. Wind
is active as a progressive citizen in public affairs but his interest is mainly centered on his family and his
growing business. He is a member of the First Presbyterian church of Whitesboro and is now its treasurer. Fraternally
he is identified with Oriskany Lodge, A. F. & A. M. He owns a large brick building on Main street in Whitesboro,
known as the Wind Block, and derives from it a handsome income, as it is all rented. A self made man, he has advanced
steadily, and through his energy, determination and straightforward business methods has won a position as one
of the representative men of Oneida county.
