FRANK DWYER, a farmer, residing on section 6, Grant Township, Clark County, was born on Wolf River, Wisconsin, December 19, 1859. He is a son of John and Catharine Dwyer, both natives of Ireland. They came to Wisconsin in 1859, with six children and with no capital with which to begin life in the new State. Four of the children are still living. In 1863 they settled in Clark County, where the father bought a large tract of Government land which, with the assistance of his sons, he cleared up and converted into beautiful farms. John Dwyer was perhaps one of the best known farmers in Clark County. He was a whole souled, congenial, kind hearted man, who loved to tell a story, and his manner of talk, although a little eccentric bespoke a chaste and cheerful man. Politically he was a Democrat. His death occurred in January 1881. The mother's death occurred January 22, 1890. She was an exemplary Christian woman, and her loss was deeply felt by her sons and a large circle of friends.


Frank Dwyer, the subject of this sketch, an enterprising young farmer, resides on the old homestead. He is a man of integrity, and is following in the footsteps of his worthy father. He was married November 4, 1890, to Miss Julia Kapka, daughter of Martin Kapka, of Neillsville, Wisconsin.
