Among the men of Warren county who have forged their way to the front by sheer force of will and individual merit rather than by the influence and material assistance of others, no better or worthier example than that of Frank A. Wegerly, well known farmer of Warren township, could be found. He is a man of excellent judgment, which accounts for his uniform success, possessing clear ideas in all business matters. Being careful in his calculations, resourceful in his dealings and eminently honorable in his relations with others, people have always reposed confidence in his word and his integrity has ever been above criticism.

Mr. Wegerly was born March 20, 1863, in Circleville, Ohio, the sone of Adam and Amelia (Slager) Wegerly. The father was a farmer in Pickaway county, Ohio. His family consisted of six children, namely: William, John, Milt, Alice, Frank A. (of this sketch), and Lafayette.

Frank A. Wegerly was educated in Pickaway county, Ohio, and he came to Indiana on August 25, 1884, and has thus spent the past twenty-eight years in the Hoosier state. He arrived here without capital, and in order to get a start in the world he worked out at odd jobs, starting life with nothing, but he was persevering and thrifty and in due course of time became very well established. Locating in Warren coutny, he prospered from year to year as a general farmer and stock man, until at this writing he is the owner of the May farm in Warren township, consisting of two hundred acres, also owns one hundred and sixty acres in Pulaski county, this state. He has kept his land well improved and under a high state of cultivation and he has met with a large measure of success as a general farmer and raiser of good live stock of various kinds. He has a commodious home and such convenient outbuildings and modern farming machinery as his needs require.

Mr. Wegerly was married in 1885 to Clara Evans, daughter of Isaac and Mary Evans. Three children have been born to the subject and wife, namely: Mary, who married George Lighty, and they have one child, Donald; Nona is attending school.

In religious matters Mr. Wegerly belongs to the Presbyterian church, and fraternally is a member of the Woodmen and the Improved Order of Red Men.
