Compiled by Franklyn Curtiss-Wedge
John Romo, one of the prosperous and energetic farmers of Wang township, was born in a dug-out, on the place in section 30, where he still resides, Dec. 27, 1870. He was reared to agricultural pursuits by his father, attended the district school and the Willmar Seminary, and some eleven years ago took charge of the home place. He successfully carries on general farming and makes a specialty of raising good stock. Like his father before him, he is interested in church matters, and has served the Hawk Creek church as secretary for the past fifteen years. He is a stockholder in the Granite Falls Telephone Co. and the Farmers' State Bank of Sacred Heart. Mr Romo married Clara Docken, daughter of Ingebret Docken, and they have two children, Gladys Alvine Marion and Eveline Leonora.
