D. J. MEAD, farmer and dealer in ice, Corry, was born in Youngsville, Warren Co., and is a son of one of the early settlers. Our subject has been twice married, first to Miss Alexander, now deceased. One child— Sell J.— blessed this union. His second wife was Miss Dora J. Drown, of Corry, formerly a resident of Iowa. Mr. Mead followed lumbering twenty years. He served during the late rebellion two years in the Eighty-third Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteer Infantry, Company I, Col. Brown. He has acted as City Councilman and Assessor. Mr. Mead has been a resident of Corry thirty-nine years, and established in his present occupation several years. He owns fifty acres of land on the old turnpike, and a fine property in the Bish Block, center of the city. His brother, O. Mead, was associated with our subject in the ice business for about fifteen years, and on his decease, January 2, 1881, Mr. D. J. Mead assumed the sole control.
