THOMAS RENWICKS4, who owns and operates a fine farm on section 2, South Grove township, is a native of Dumfries county, Scotland, born April 29, 1834, and is the son of Walter and Mary (Weil) Renwick, the former a native of Scotland and the latter of England. They were the parents of sixteen children, of whom our subject was fourteenth in order of birth. The family came from Scotland to America in 1835, and located first in Canada, where the father engaged in farming until 1845, when he came to Illinois, located first in Kane county and later coming to Cortland township, De Kalb county, and from there to Pierce township.

The subject of this sketch was in his infancy when he accompanied his parents to Canada, and was but eleven years of age when he came with them to Illinois. His education was obtained principally in the common schools of this state. He started in life for himself at the age of eighteen years, working on a farm by the month at ten dollars. On the 9th day of March, 1864, he married Lucy A. Ramsey, a native of South Grove township, De Kalb county, and a daughter of George Ramsey, who was born in Pennsylvania, and a farmer by occupation who came to Illinois in 1838, first locating in Monroe township, Ogle county, Illinois, where she was born. By this union three children have been born: Bessie, Lucy O., and Thomas J.

Starting in life without a cent and receiving no aid from any source, Mr. Renwick has made a success and has now seven hundred and twenty acres of as fine land as there is in De Kalb county, all being well improved, with good buildings and properly drained. In politics he is an ardent Republican and has held the office of road commissioner. As a man he enjoys the utmost confidence and respect of all who know him.
