F. M. BROCK was born in Clark County, Ind., on the 2d of November, 1834,
being the eighth of a family of eleven children, born to George W. and
Elizabeth (McKinley) Brock. The father was a native of Virginia, and the
mother, of Kentucky. They removed to Indiana at a very early day,
settling in Clark County, where they remained until their deaths. The
subject of this sketch had very limited advantages of schools, and
received a meager education, and was raised at hard work. He remained
with his parents until he reached his twenty-second year, when he engaged
in coopering. In 1859 his marriage with Serilda Goss was solemnized, and
to this union have been born ten children, six of whom are now living:
Alexander, Ellen, Laura (dead), Ephraim (dead), Charley, Lafayette, Kate,
Mary, and two infants (dead) unnamed. In politics he is a stanch
Republican, and by occupation, a farmer and stock-raiser. The township
has no better citizen.
