  • Biography: John Bergin
    John Bergin, an enterprising and successful agriculturist residing on section 12, Eldorado township, has spent his entire life in Fond du lac county, his birth having occurred in the year 1862. His parents, Michael and Julie (Closey) Bergin, were natives of Ireland. The father came to Fond du Lac county in 1842 and here entered a tract of land from the government.
    John Bergin obtained his education at Eldorado, this county, and since putting aside his text-books has been engaged in the work of the fields. All improvements which may now be seen on his farm of two hundred acres, on section 12, stand as monuments to his thrift and enterprise. The well tilled fields annually yield golden harvests in return for the care and labor which he bestows upon them, and thus his income has been gratifying.
    In 1894, in North Fond du Lac, John Bergin was united in marriage to Miss Maggie Castin, a daughter of Thomas and Mary Castin. The children of Mr. and Mrs. Bergin are eight in number, as follows: Francis, show is sixteen years of age; Edwin, a youth of fifteen; William, who is thirteen years old; Timothy, Veronica, David and Mansfield, who are eleven, eight, seven and five years of age respectively; and Helen, one year old.
    Since age conferred upon him the right of franchise John Bergin has supported the men and measures of the democratic party, believing firmly in the principles of that organization. His religious faith is that of the Catholic church and his life has been upright and honorable in all its relations, commanding the regard and esteem of those with whom he has come in contact.
