Victor Frane, who owns and operates a dairy route at Colby, and who has lived in Clark County for nearly 50 years, was born March 16, 1877, at Fond du Lac, the son of Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Frane. Five years later he came with his parents to the vicinity of Romeo, where they settled on a farm. He attended the rural school and assisted with farm work for a number of years, after which he worked for four years as a cheese maker. In 1901 he purchased an 80-acre farm near Colby and later added two other eighties. His stock includes a herd of 27 purebred Guernsey cows, 18 head of young cattle and a flock of 40 White Orpinton chickens. Four years ago he started a milk route in Colby, and installed modern dairy equipment, including an electrically operated refrigerator, bottle washer and capper. He was a director and vice president of the Central Canning Company for nine years, and served his township three years as supervisor and one year as treasurer. 

He was married May 7, 1901, to Miss Catherine Engeldinger in Colby, by the Reverend C. B. Weikmann. They have six sons and three daughters: Arthur, Theodore, Alvin, Edward, Vincent, Donald, Mrs. Matthew Aller, Evelyn and Katherine.  

Politically, he is a Democrat. His hobby is reading.
