George Fogo, son of John and Jane (Dreghorn) Fogo, was born in Columbiana Co., Ohio, June 14, 1837 and came to Wisconsin with his parents in 1853, where he made his home until 1859. In March of that year he was married to Caroline, daughter of Harvey and Mary (Ewing) Gilingham. He then settled on section 17, town of Rockbridge, and commenced to clear a farm. He has been successful, has purchased more land adjoining until now his farm contains 240 acres, about one half of which is cleared. He has built a frame house and stable, and is engaged in raising grain, sheep, horses and cattle. He has been prominent in town and county affairs, has been a member of the board, and filled offices of trust in the town. Mr. and Mrs. Fogo have seven children --- Harvey, John D, Etta, Ormsly F, Jennie, Alice and Georgia. Mr. Fogo is among the best class of Richland county citizens, is a good business man, and has deservedly been successful in his undertakings.
