Harwood, Bert S., was born December 13, 1873, a son of Hon. J. Marville and Cornelia J. Harwood. His father was born in the town of Newfane, on the Hess Road, in 1838, and was a prosperous farmer. He served as supervisor for a term of years and was afterward elected to the Assembly and served two terms, 1889 and 1890. He was killed on August 7, 1893. Bert S. Harwood was attending school at Lockport at the time of his father's death, when the care and management of a large farm developed upon him, and he was obliged to leave his school without completing the course. There are four children living in this family: Bert S., J. Marville, born in 1880; Nina C., born in 1884; and Frank R., born in 1886. Bert S. Harwood is now engaged in growing fruit and grain, but gives the most attention to fruit growing, having a pear orchard of 1,000 trees, 1,000 peach trees and six acres of berries, besides a large apple orchard.
