K. L. WOOD
K. L. Wood, dealer in and breeder of French and Clyde horses, Piqua. K. L. Wood takes special pride in breeding and raising fine horses, which are second to none in the county; a portion of his stock was exhibited at the World's Fair in England (being their native country), where they were awarded the highest honors. He was born in Union Co., Ohio, in 1824, and raised on the farm, where his education was advanced to a limited degree; he being brought up on the farm, gave him access to the handling of stock from childhood, in which his utmost delight was placed; he remained in his native county until coming to Piqua in 1870, during which time he bred and raised stock; his investment in horses is perhaps more than any other in Miami Co.; he is now located in Third Ward of Piqua, one of the finest locations to be found; it affords a grand view of the town, and is but little disturbed by the unpleasantness of dust and noise. Mr. Wood is Guardian of the H. E. Loomis Paper Manufacturing Co., one of the leading enterprises of that plain In October 1848, he married Hannah Coe, a native of Union Co., Ohio; three years later she passed away; two children were born to them, now both deceased.

Smith, of Union Co., also; their companionship continued for a period of fourteen years, when death seized her and she was consigned to the silent tomb, April 16, 1872; by this union five children were born to them, of whom two are now living; Lewis H.. and Rosa. Oct. 10 1876, he married Lizzie Spencer; one child, Mattie, was born to them, now deceased. Mrs. Wood is a native of Belfast, Ireland, but has been a resident of Miami Co., since 1863.
