EARL CASPER WOOD, a well-known and respected resident of Pine Valley Township, engaged in the pursuit of agriculture, was born on his present homestead in section 18, Dec. 1, 1889. The homestead, and the house in which he was born, were formerly the property of his grandfather, Alonzo Wood, afterwards coming into possession of our subject's father, David Wood. Earl Casper's education was obtained in the district school and the high school at Neillsville. Growing to manhood on the home farm, he acquired a knowledge of agriculture and then engaged in the lumber business as a logging contractor. After being thus occupied for about one year, Mr. Wood turned his attention to farming, taking up that occupation on the old homestead in Pine Valley, which has a most picturesque location, overlooking the valley and the surrounding hills, and commanding an extensive and beautiful view. He raises good stock and as a farmer has been successful.
Mr. Wood married, Dec. 5, 1914, Glen Woodcock, who was born in Sheboygan County, Wis., Feb. 14, 1896, a daughter of Earl and Jennie (Flemming) Woodcock, who located some ten years ago in Clark County, and now resides in section 9, Pine Valley Township. Mr. and Mrs. Wood are the parents of two children: Ruth and Dorothy.
